We work on stuff that ranges from web development to infrastructure to cloud computing, so if you're interested in any or all of the above definitely consider getting involved. Check out the projects section on this page to see what we've worked on and what we're building now.
All of our projects are currently hosted on the official CREW Github account. We also have constructed a list of current and completed projects seen below.
If you ever wanted to enter the pit but weren't sure if anyone was there to let you in, this project is your solution! The pitcam, located at http://pitcam.ccs.neu.edu allows you to see if anyone is in the pit.
This projected is a deployment system for crew. It hooks into Github's WebHook Service Hooks. Configure a webserver to host this repo then point the Service Hook at that URL.
A lot of older Crew services (such as IRC and DDS) were running on older hardware utilizing OpenVZ. We have moved these services to virtual machines running on VMWare.
CrewU is a current project that is meant to teach incoming and current Crew members the basics of Linux and Web Development. The project is broken down into 4 parts: Linux Basics, Linux Advanced, Linux Infrastructure, and Web Development.
Started in the late 20th century, this is Crew's biggest project. It encompasses several rewrites using the latest technology available at the time. From PowerPoint to Python to Puppet, this project is all about controlling the TV screens around campus. Using a centralized DDS server, users can modify slides on any TV at any point in time, and even put up dynamic slides to show things like print queues or RSS feeds.
Metrics is all about harnessing the data that can be collected from systems in the labs. The initial premise is to see what machines are more popular in 102 West Village H (the computer lab), Linux or Windows. If you're all about proving Linux is the superior OS, stop by and work on this project to prove it. If you do prove it, then we get even more Linux machines in the lab!
Don't worry, we've got you covered. If you want to help out, but don't actually know very much about web development, etc(needs editing) Crew U is there to help you learn. Through a series of bootcamps in the Linux Terminal, Web Dev and [...were there more?] we'll get you up to speed with what you need to know to contribute.
