We were delighted to hear about the first ever pipesCamp that was recently held in Chennai, India.
The event had approximately 50 hackers and hobbyists attending. The event not only allowed experienced users to share new ideas, techniques and pipes – but also provided a community for new users to tap into the power of Yahoo! Pipes.
The agenda of pipesCamp covered the history and evolution of Pipes, the usage of Pipes from a blogger’s and developer’s perspective, experiments with Pipes, workshops / tutorials and feature request discussions. There was also a running contest for “Best Pipe” during this camp with prizes announced at the end of the day. In the afternoon a “hackday” event was held where people formed into groups and created a pipe.
Here are some of the pipes that were popular from the hack event:
- Pipe which can map a bus route in Chennai, India
- Ego Search using pipes
Overall the pipesCamp was a success! We hope to see more pipesCamps in the future and congratulate the organizers Prabhu & Bhasker for putting it all together.
