Second week and week one for the Code for Good Hackathon has ended. This week was rough for my group and me. We went from winning to failing. But as the brilliant Thomas A. Edison once said "[We] have not failed. [We]'ve just found a thousand ways that won't work". Everything is a process. Not everything will come to us so easily.
Iremos participar na próxima semana da edição deste ano do Fórum Internacional de Software Livre – FISL 14.
Teremos um stand no evento e faremos cinco palestras técnicas, apresentando algumas tecnologias da Intel e nossas contribuições para projetos Open Source. As palestras técnicas irão abordar temas como computação paralela e desenvolvimento para dispositivos móveis, e abaixo está um resumo das palestras que iremos apresentar.

The IUEE hackathon continues, & the students almost all have their apps in alpha. They worked together very hard to get their apps to this point. They used online resources to learn what they need & asked us facilitators when they got stuck. Through their perseverance, they made apps that work for the most part.
Sit back for a moment and reflect on just what the internet is and how it has affected you, your work, and the world at large. Feel the sweeping, awestruck sensation of there being a meta-universe that exists, not unlike the seemingly infinite neural pathways inside your brain (that picture, by the way, is not of firing neurons, but a visual fragment of the internet's interconnectivity.) Feel it? I hope so.
Today was the second week of the IUEE@CGCC in Chandler, Arizona. We are learning how to create an HTML 5 app from the business plans our teams formulated during our first week of the program. The format of the App Academy portion is that of a hack-a-thon.
While I miss having Hannah and CJ leading our group (WORD!!! CJ, Hi Hannah!) I am very excited for the chance to learn from Paul, Tom, and all the other App Academy mentors. I am very appreciative of this chance to experience this entire program.
We are in another Code for Good Hackathon, this one is part of the Intel Ultimate Engineering Experience [IUEE]. From June 10 - 20, Contra Costa College students fly to Chandler Gilbert College, a community college in Arizona. We are facilitating 2 separate hackathon there. In each hackathon group, there are 9 teams, each with about 6 people; there are around 120 people total in these hackathons. This is the 1st time we participated in a hackathon at this scale.
No dia 4/6/2013 o Community Manager da Intel, Luciano Palma, apresentou uma Palestra sobre Computação Paralela no SECOMP 2013, realizado na UNIFEI - Itajubá/MG.
