Access Notes

You'll need to check in with the Mozilla office front desk, on the third floor. The elevators lock at 6pm, but when there's an evening event scheduled, they should stay open until 7pm.


Update: Brad Fitzpatrick and Nick O'neill of the Camlistore project will be attending!

Let's get together and install Camlistore.

Camlistore is a "personal storage system for life", similar in some ways to Dropbox, Google+, and Git. It is designed to archive personally-relevant data from sources such as your hard drive, social networks, and your mobile phone camera. Once data is imported, you can annotate and organize, query, and share.

Camli is moving fast, and is currently for developers and motivated early adopters. Bonus points for installing ahead of time, so we can focus on the fun stuff and so we have more people on hand who can help with installation.


  • Install Camlistore on your laptop and play with the web interface and cammount, camput and camget commands
  • Sync some photos with the Android app
  • Play with the awesome query interface, for example searching by image properties.

Advanced ideas

  • Set up Camlistore on a home server, or on a VPS using S3 for storage (see this recipe).
  • Build and install the iOS photo sync app and sync some photos
  • Publish parts of your store to the web with go templates
  • Try out claim-based sharing

Lightning Talks

If you have a project in progress that you'd like to share, there will be time at the beginning of the meetup for 5 minute lightning talks. Add your topic below.

  • Don Park on 'just enough ruby to use Camlistore as a generic image host'
  • Nick Moore will have a Raspberry Pi on hand running Camlistore.
  • @edrex on archiving and annotating handwritten notes
