We here at Sixteen Colors can tend to have a motivation problem. For this holiday season we have a solution! We are inviting anyone to join us on December 28, 2011 to put our heads together and make some improvements to the site. We have a laundry list of features that we can add, but our main focus will be on these areas:
- Basic metadata editing
- Tag packs/artworks
- Expand search functionality
- Add browse by artist and group
- Keep data audit trail
- Complete design and implementation of html5 version of site
If you're interested in participating, check out the code on github. Contact @sixteencolors or leave a comment and we can help you get it running. Please keep in mind that we are always happy to include more people on the team. The invitation is not limited to the hackathon, this is just a way to help people get interested. You also don't have to be a developer to help. We could use help with design, outreach, testing, brainstorming, curating and just about anything else you can think of related to the site.
In addition, we will be ready to roll out our API at that time. If you are interested in creating a mobile app or using the Sixteen Colors data in some other way, we will be around to help you implement the API. We would also love to be joined by anyone doing development on their own textmode projects; the more the merrier!
