As you probably didn't get enough of Kryptoradio in our previous session, it's time for a redux. In brief Kryptoradio provides means to stream stuff over DVB-T network of Finland. Beyond Bitcoin block chain, you can transmit stuff like ASCII art or entire websites even.

Given the last time was sort of theoretical we thought maybe it would be nice to actually do something instead of contemplating future possibilities. That is where Revenge of Kryptoradio comes in. In this session we will take a hands on approach and actually try to build something on top of the technology.

I will be focusing on stuff such as React.js, D3.js and possibly webpack and show how to build a graphing thingy on top of Kryptoradio API. There is no rigid schedule and it's more about exploring technology than nodding in agreement. It might be useful to bring your laptop.

See you at Hemingways on Thursday 30.10 starting from 18:00. I'll go likely grab a bite around five in some nearby joint. If dinner sounds alright, let's arrange something over IRC at #geekcollision (@IRCnet of course).

GC v0.40 Kryptoradio

Hey, o-hoy, fellow geeks and comrades and radio amateurs and whoever is tuning in. For the version 0.40 we have a little something special in store as Joel Lehtonen will introduce his Kryptoradio project that has already made history.

Kryptoradio sends Bitcoin transactions through 90 of Digita's TV broadcasting stations. The broadcast is a pilot to evaluate the suitability of digital television network for transmitting payment data and to enable application development. Broadcast data includes Bitcoin transactions, blocks and exchange rates with regards to the most common currencies. These enable the reception and monitoring of Bitcoin payments without an Internet connection, which enhances the reliability of payment confirmation.

In GC meeting Joel will walk us through the basic concept of Kryptoradio and how exactly one can join in on developing applications for it. Kryptoradio has an HTTP interface that enables development with technologies already familiar from web development.

We'll be starting around 6PM next Wednesday the 8th, for presentational reasons in Hemingway's (the one on Kauppakatu).

TL;DR: Kryptoradio, bitcoin broadcasting via TV network, introduction Wed 8.10.2014 in Hemingway's Kauppakatu starting 6PM.
