Hacking social software with pump.io*
pump.io is a platform for people who love writing social software and hate ever-changing terms of service. It's an Open Source, federated social network that works! And it's fun, too.
pump.io is a modern, high-performance federated social network server. It gets social activities from one part of the network to another, based on the embedded social graph.
This discussion will start with an overview of the design of the pump.io server software, its API, and supported protocols. It will discuss how client applications are developed.
The talk will finish with a deep dive into a simple Web client written in Python that implements a simple zombie-bite social game.
Attendees should be interested in social software development, and familiar enough with Python to follow along in a demonstration.
Evan Prodromou has spoken on social network software and federated social Web technologies at South by Southwest, OSCON, and the Open Source Bridge.
Evan is the founder of E14N and the lead developer on pump.io.
