  • Crack the Code: Dev Team Call Out

    Posted April 3, 2017 at 8 a.m. to ccMixter Listening Lounge Public | Comment

    Crack the CodeDo you have the desire, determination, and time to help us CRACK the CODE? Do you have the technical skills to join one of our two new volunteer Dev Teams? Please take a look at the teams below and see if your skills match.

    Current Site Maintenance Team

    This team is a devOps team focusing on the “ops” side, but requires dev skill as well.

    Skills Required for the Team

    Not everyone has to have all these skills, but they should all be represented on team.

    • Linux sysadmin skills via SSH

    • PHP and Apache

    • Some Javascript and HTML would be useful.

    • Help desk skills

    Next Version Team

    The “next version” team would also be devOps, but focused on development. The key vision of this team is to move to a modern REST model where posting to the server is done in a predictable, API tokened, JSON oriented way, with results rendered to the UI in a reliable JSON fashion.

    Skills Required for the Team

    Not everyone has to have all these skills, but they should all be represented on team.

    • Full stack skills in Apache/PHP and MEAN (or comparable frameworks.)

    • Visual Design skills

    • Wireframing and sketchy gui

    • People with a  lot of patience and creativity.

    • Strong opinions about what music collaboration should look like

    • Willing to read “ccmixter: A Memoir.”

     

    Still intrigued? Awesome! Please follow this link and read Admiral Bob’s development vision for ccMixter for more details. Reply to this forum post or contact us when you are ready and able to join one of the Dev Teams.

    A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open. - Frank Zappa 
     
    If you feel like the world is spiraling downward like a house in a tornado and the cord to open the chute is broken, then this remix event is for you. Click your heels twice and join us for Somewhere Over the Border, an event where remixes do come true. 
     
    We like to be as open as possible, without borders, both literally and figuratively. ccMixer.org is an open access site where everyone from everywhere is always welcome. We are proud of our international, cultural and musical diversity. We believe that keeping our music openly licensed, open to boundless collaboration, and open inclusion in creative projects around the world, well, makes our community thrive. Like Dorothy, we are spinning from all that is happening in the world right now. Like Frank, we’re stretching the boundaries of music creation and interpretation — and hopefully opening minds along the way. 
     
    In paying attention to the undercurrent of the ccMixter community, we’ve noticed that many members are actively engaged in political and world happenings at this historic moment in time. Because of this, we think it would be a good time for a remix event that is world issue themed. Somewhere Over the Border is your opportunity to air your political grievances, share your hopes for the future and get remixed!
