At the end of the Hackathon...

It's almost time to leave, we're all packed. I've just posting the photos I toke from the hackathon to Flickr, people will be able to find them. It was a nice experience to be here and take part in this activity. Now, it's time to get back to Amsterdam and get back to the routine...

Saturday at the Hackathon

People work hard at the hackathon.

I am still feeling a bit sick, and was not able to follow everybody's else rithym. I needed to stop for a while on the afternoon for a pill and a nap.

Besides this, it was nice and easy work at the project. There is a big lot of things to do. I will probably ask Phillipe 'BooK' Brunhat to allow me to continue documenting the system.

BooK finally published our friday night adventure. This is a geek funny situation, so if you understand nothing about unix systems, don't waste your time.

Finally at the Hackathon...

Ann Barcom should be awarded a descritive cartography certificate. She managed to bring me safelly to the Hackathon just writing down the path at the Hackathon website.

The venue is fine, plenty of space and reasonably confortable. I need to start documenting something to Philip "Book" in a few minutes, and this is exactly now. :-)

I will keep you all posted. This seems to be the begining of a very long night...

Good Wheather, Good Mood, Nice Trip

Someone pointed me at lunch time that it's a pretty sunny day outside, today. And suddently I figured out that rainy days doesn't affect my good mood at all, nor make me feel depressed or trashed.

On the other hand, paying attention on the wheather, I could say that the extra daylight and sunshine cheered me up a bit, and this is important.

I'm already packed for the Hackathon (it starts today), will take a train at the Zuid Station, in Amsterdam at 17:53 and will be reaching Arnhem by 19:15, just in time for dinner.

Inscrição para participar do Primeiro Hackathon Europeu

Eu ontem cometi uma loucura.

Me inscrevi para participar do Primeiro Hackathon Europeu.

Hackathon? Sim, é um neologismo da cultura cibernética.
Em inglês, para todo mundo entender: in a marathon, you run. In a hackathon, you hack.
Trocando em miúdos, quer dizer que é um evento onde voluntários se inscrevem, se encontram, e, durante um determinado período de tempo, trabalham em um projeto open-source qualquer, normalmente oferecido e preparado previamente para isso por um ou mais organizadores do hackathon.

O hackathon vai acontecer na cidade de Arnhem, nos Netherlands, nos dias 02, 03, e 04 de março de 2007. Sim, é um final-de-semana, é por isso que eu disse que cometi uma loucura... eu deveria ter pensado e programado meu final de semana para fazer alguma coisa diferente do trabalho, mas é saudável para a minha profissão participar de atividades deste tipo de vez em quando. Eu me aperfeiçoo profissionalmente e também melhoro meus conhecimentos técnicos, que são duas coisas muito importantes.
