The guys behind hover.in (more about it later) are organizing a one day unconference event called pipesCamp for Yahoo Pipes hackers and hobbyists in Chennai. Yahoo Pipes is an excellent and useful tool from Yahoo.
I am going to save some typing by copy/pasting information about Pipes from the Pipes home page.
Pipes is a powerful composition tool to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web.
Like Unix pipes, simple commands can be combined together to create output that meets your needs:
- combine many feeds into one, then sort, filter and translate it.
- geocode your favorite feeds and browse the items on an interactive map.
- power widgets/badges on your web site.
- grab the output of any Pipes as RSS, JSON, KML, and other formats.
The event is taking place on December 23 and you can find more information about the event from its home page. There seems to be lot of interesting things planed for the event including a hackday type event.
So if you are Chennai then make sure that you don’t miss it. The event is taking place at
Hotel Shan Royal
85, Poonamallee High Road,
Near Koyambedu Circle, Chennai , India
And here is the place on Google Maps.
I am planning to take Yuvi with me, so you are sure to get some interesting photographs too 🙂
