You want to add a bit to the hackspace infrastructure. We've built up a rough system of how things are done. So here are a few guidelines on how to do this so that other people can work on your code and everything is somewhat organised.

Languages

Python seems to be the lingua franca, but lots of us know a little bit of lots of languages. You are just likely to get more contributions to your code if it is python.

Github

We have a github group that is run by X. It would be nice to have everything in one place if we can.

Internal Server

We currently have babbage as an internal server. This is to be preferred for internally facing apps, so that everyone can hack on them.

Externally facing apps need a bit more thought in terms of security, so use your common sense. Even if you know what you are doing hackers afterwards may not.

You can get an account on babbage by getting a hold of X, Y, Z.
