There's another codejam happening in London this Saturday, fresh off the heels of a very successful event in Porto Allegre, Brazil, hosted by Carlos Villela. We've also been running nearly-weekly meetups in New York city. If you're interested in helping out in any of these places (or Australia or India or San Francisco or anywhere else) join the google group and let us know.
For details on this weekend's London codejam, head to this posting on meetup.com.

So the RapidFTR codejam is going ahead this Saturday at the Thoughtworks London office!
During the recent trip to Uganda, we've managed to gather a lot of very useful feedback from NGOs that might like to adopt RapidFTR, and from the aid workers that would end up using it. The good news is that everyone we showed it to was very excited about the possiblities it offers. We've since been busy taking everything we're learnt and turning it into a set of stories that we think will be necessary for RapidFTR to be used in a real humanitarian emergency.
So we've now got a lot more stories that we would like to get done, and are really hoping to get more volunteers from the software dev community, to help take this across the finishing line and get it deployed out into the field.
As usual we've got plenty of Ruby on Rails stories to play, but we're also keen to get people involved with the Blackberry mobile client (Java), which is absolutely key to the system.
Please bring a laptop ready for Ruby on Rails development, or running Windows for Blackberry development, if you can. If not, we should almost certainly have enough for everyone to pair on.
Kicking things off at the Thoughtworks office in Holburn at 10am. Breakfast and lunch provided. :)
An in-depth review of the user testing trip to Uganda coming soon. fun!
ParticipateWe are looking for experienced Ruby on Rails programmers. If you're interested in participating, please go to developer info.
