I attended my first Radiant hack night last week. We met at John’s apartment and spent several hours coding up new features for Radiant, which is an awesome Content Management System (CMS) built on Rails. Rick and John worked on a redesign of the admin backend, while Michael and I began adding support for using gems as Radiant extensions. There is still some work left to do, but we made decent progress.
I really enjoyed the experience. If you’re at all interested in learning more about Radiant, or helping to contribute, I encourage you to consider attending the next hack night. Make sure you’re on the raleigh.rb mailing list to receive notification when it gets scheduled.
