Отвъд мигащия светодиод (Dimo Dimov)

След лекцията "Blinking LED remake", този уъркшоп е директен разговор с Вас (на български или англиийски) и практическа демонстрация на софтуер с отворен код, който, според автора, може успешно да замени съответния комерсиален софтуер (с недостъпен изходен код). After the "Blinking LED remake", this workshop is a one-to-one conversation (in English or Bulgarian) and a practical demonstration of FOSS that, according to the author, can successfully replace closed source commercial software.

Don't think outside the box, think what can you do with it ! (Lyuba Popova)

Често сте чували фразата "мисли извън кутията (think outside the box)", но едва ли толкова често някой ви е карал да помислите какво можете да спретнете с една празна кутия? Е, тук създателката на Amalgama.bg ви предизвиква да развихрите своето въображение и да се включите в творческата работилница за рециклирани кутии. Там ще научите нови творчески умения, какво означава благозвучната и недотам българска дума "up-cycling", а и ще си тръгнете с готова кутия! :)

Diversity & Inclusion & Why it is so important! (Димитър Йорданов)

At the moment diversity is a hot topic for many companies globally. But why do we need it? To have a diverse team is increasingly being recognized as instrumental for improving the overall performance, driving innovation and is also imperative that organizations can no longer choose to ignore. Diversity is key to our growth as individuals and as organizations. It is widely recognized today that diversity adds a lot of value, even if it requires working through the issues and costs that sometimes comes with it. The purpose of this Workshop is to provide a broad discussion of the concepts of diversity and inclusion in the workplace and provide a better understanding of what they may mean for organizations. This BoF also aims to assist the participants in thinking about both differences and similarities among employees, and how these can be leveraged, and accommodated, by the organization.

Pimp your bike – направете велосипеда си с мигачи тип Audi (Цветан Узунов)

Елате и тунинговайте велосипеда си с мигачи тип Audi! Както винаги, китовете и участието в работилницата са безплатни. Броят на поялниците ни е ограничен, така че, ако вече имате свой, идвайте с него, за да стават нещата по-бързо. Тъй като китовете ще бъдат само 100 бр, не е лошо да се регистрирате по-рано на info@olimex.com, за да Ви запазим кит, защото предполагаме, че интересът ще е голям и може да не стигнат за всички желаещи.

From beginners to experts at the fine art of lockpicking we brought something for everyone! About TOOOL Toool is The Open Organisation Of Lockpickers, a growing group of enthusiasts interested in locks, keys, and ways of opening locks without keys. Toool was founded in 2002 in Amsterdam. In 2006, a local chapter in Eindhoven was founded, and in 2015 a chapter started in Groningen. They all have regular meetings (once every other week). Members of Toool are welcome in all cities. People from abroad are welcome too. Especially from Belgium as there is no lockpicking group in Belgium. The USA has a Toool US that was founded in 2005.
