Nice pitch and description of the challenges of hosting a civic hackathon.
The National Day of Civic Hacking is a great time to attend — or host your first hackathon. We’ve outlined some strategies for first-time hackathon hosts to ensure new participants feel welcome, and help them maximize their contributions.

Nice go talk.
I think of this as a process. I look at a system as it exists today, and compare it against how it should exist in the future. The better I am at what I do, the better I can perform that transformation. Why Go? I think Go is a really excellent tool.

Nice article on getting comfortable in the Terminal and with git
At 18F we hire people from many different backgrounds and each new employee brings a different level of comfort with the specific tools we use on our various projects. The team that runs the 18F website recently started writing down the tools and proccesses that we use to update the blog and the code that runs the site. We're sharing that with you today.

A modernized View Master sounds fun (hint, hint to those who have a concern). But I still like my old discs.
The New York Toy Fair, the world’s largest annual toy convention starts this week. On the first day press were allowed inside, Mattel dropped a huge announcement that it will be revamping its View-Master to be compatible with the Google Cardboard virtual reality platform. Now, instead of needing cardboard frames to see images pop out …

A very good short article on naming things in Go but I think it can be applied to many languages that use a module organization.
Package names. 4 February 2015. Introduction. Go code is organized into packages. Within a package, code can refer to any identifier (name) defined within, while clients of the package may only reference the package's exported types, functions, constants, and variables.

Things are getting interesting for what you can do in web browsers.
Recently the BroadcastChannel API landed in Firefox 38. This API can be used for simple messaging between browser contexts that have the same user agent ...

I like this example for showing when to start moving out of your favorite library of the month.  I like moment because it addresses date problems which are common in many apps but it indeed comes with a CPU and k-weight price.  Know your code and know the code you depend on.

This sounds like an improvement for building things targeting Firefox OS or browser.
NOTE: we presented this project last Sunday at FOSDEM, but not everyone could make it to Brussels, so here's a post explaining what node-firefox is ...

Nice highlight about the Otto JavaScript implementation for Go.  It should how easy it is to expose Go functions to JavaScript calls.

Nice demo of improved performance of the R-Pi 2 versus original.
Today the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced a new model of the Raspberry Pi! While the new Raspberry Pi looks almost identical to the previous one, it's much more powerful (and with four cores instead of one) and costs just $35. Here at Collabora we have worked together with the Raspberry Pi ...
