Theme Camp Organizing

I’ve developed a Drupal 7 module and database for managing registrations, classes, mealshifts, camp dues, and many other aspects of running a theme camp. It is written in PHP. I haven’t released it yet but I’d like to have collaborators share work in building out features. If you know Drupal or PHP and are interested in learning more, please be in touch.

PlayaCompass 2015

Black Rock City can be a confusing place. The Playa Compass is a virtual map and compass to guide you. Playa Compass understands the layout of Black Rock City and shows you where you are on the pentagon, helps you find your way back to where you left your bike, and helps you navigate back to camp when the dust kicks up on the Playa. Unlike your GPS, Playa Compass knows your Playa Address – how many feet you are from the Man, and at what angle or clock hour. When you are in the city proper, where camps are established, Playa Compass displays the street address of your current location. You can use Playa Compass to navigate to specific Playa Addresses, and to mark locations that you would like to return to.

Playa Compass does not require access to the Internet to function. In August of each year, the “Golden Spike” is set, determining where the Man will be constructed. Playa Compass will be updated at that time to initialize with the Man’s location. When you are not located at BRC, Playa Compass operates in a Demo mode, with your starting location marking the Man. Be sure your GPS is turned on- some devices require this as a separate action.
