Weekly Hackalong for 'Power Users' 💪 🙂

So far, weekly Hackalongs organised by community members have focused on generic themes. However, starting Thursday, May 14, one of the Hackalongs will narrow its focus to the specific themes mentioned below:

Open to anyone looking to leverage these themes. You could be a dev building in a modular fashion. Or a ‘power user’ with limited dev skills who is stitching together a community or app with basic technical tools.

When: Thursday, May 14, 9am SGT/11am AEST/1am UTC/6pm PST (US: May 13)
Where: Zoom Room; Calendar Invite

@philipbeadle will join us for the first session. We’ll explore how CRISPR works for you as well as build out a basic reputation DNA module that you can use for your project.

Thanks, Sid.
PS: If you’d like to receive the calendar invite leave a comment below or DM me and I’ll add you to the recurring event.


I would love to join Sid! thanks

Thanks for organising @sidsthalekar. That is awesome. Looking forward to it.

And, for those who missed it, here’s the recording from the session. It’s on my channel for now, but we can shift it if needed.

Thanks to @philipbeadle for running us through CRISPR and Chimera. Next week, we’re thinking of getting @pospi to run us all through HoloREA and explore how it fits into all of this.



Thanks @sidsthalekar this was a very interesting session.
Being a rookie developer listing some of my takeaways.

What is CRISPR and Chimera?

  • HoloChain (hApp) development suite for low level tech skills
  • Build using vue and vuetify
  • UX pattern - Application and Parts
  • UX control - Chimera mode to add Parts
  • Parts have their own DHT - seperate from Application DHT
  • CRISPR to edit Parts or Application
  • CRISPR presents code tree, SVG model, code view, debug console
  • Allows subscription based hApps to leverage_PrivateCapabilities
  • Compile time development environment
  • For developing holochain DNA out of design
  • Dynamically remixable Design
  • Spin off multiple agents for testing

In contrast - HoloScape allows hosts to host and view holochain app within a window

@philipbeadle is there a way early learners can start playing with this tool ?
