OTC CatchUp #107

Date: 26-11-2022

Duration: 5 hrs 17 mins

Topics Discussed

  • We talked about how everyone feels about GDG MAD's tweet on Devfest Mumbai.

    • Everyone had mixed feelings about it, as a marketing technique it was fabulous but sometimes it was a bit insulting.

  • Siddharth Bhatia was curious to explore how he can run games in GitHub Codespaces.

  • Darshan Rander asked others about how they feel using online code editor tools like GitPod, or GitHub Codespaces as he doesn’t feel natural while using them.

    • Siddharth Bhatia suggested that it might be good for beginners as they don’t need to take that extra effort to setup the environment.

    • Ishan Sharma uses them for projects where he might do a contribution once and might not want to setup everything for that.

  • Siddharth Bhatia asked how one can run GUI apps in these online code editors.

  • Darshan Rander shared neverinstall, a service that allows you to run a few applications such as Android Studio, VSCode and more on the cloud with GUI on the browser.

  • Ishan Sharma shared Flipper Zero.

    • A pen-testing tool that can capture and transmit certain radio frequencies.

    • We talked about how one can use NFC on their phone to get data from NFC-enabled cards.

    • We talked about the difference between RFID and NFC.

      • TLDR; NFC is a branch of High-Frequency (HF) RFID and you can have p2p communication in NFC but not in RFID.

  • Wilfred Almeida asked how he can have security in UDP.

    • Darshan Rander said that he can look at QUIC protocol as it is also based on UDP.

    • Wilfred Almeida has already made a UDP server.

    • UDP is used to share data such as game streaming and sending application logs to the server as it eliminates the need to have a TCP handshake which takes a lot of time.

  • Ishan Sharma shared his talk about Web Animations from Devfest Chennai.

    • He gave a quick walkthrough of the talk on catchup.

    • Harsh Kapadia asked him what inspired him to go deeper into the Web Animations APIs and when one should know that they should stop.

      • Ishan Sharma said he was always curious about animations on the web and this gave him a nudge to learn them. He suggested stopping when it starts to become boring for you.

  • Ishan Sharma shared that he would be speaking at xtremejs.dev next month.
