2014/2015 na HackerSchool

O novo semestre no IST está prestes a começar. A semana de acolhimento aos novos alunos começa hoje e HackerSchool vai estar presente no átrio do Pavilhão Central em todos os dias.

Se já ouviste falar da HS e queres saber mais sobre o que fazemos ou se nunca ouviste falar de nós mas estás curioso podes passar no átrio em qualquer um destes dias e conversar connosco e ver alguns projectos que tenhamos expostos.

Os eventos da HS deste ano estão a ser planeados e esperamos publicar em breve aquilo com que podes contar para este semestre. Os preços para os membros estão a ser revistos e serão actualizados aqui no site.

Uma última palavra dirigida aos novos alunos: sê bem vindo ao Instituto Superior Técnico!

Workshops in July: registrations are open!

As for next week, we have many workshops at HackerSchool: Solid Edge, Design Thinking, Project Management, building websites with Drupal from zero, robotics and control, Arduino, Electronics, and more.

These workshops are included in our internship LX Reactor (and are, hence, free for participants). People from abroad can enrol at a cost of € 5 per workshop. (paid 15 minutes before the workshop).
Workshops

Workshops’ descriptions:

Design Thinking: an Introduction – Exclusive to LX Reactor participants 

You will take part in the “wallet exercise” devised by Stanford University. As they describe it: “90-minute fast-paced project though a full design cycle. Students pair up, show and tell each other about their wallets, ideate, and make a new solution that is ‘useful and meaningful’ to their partner.” You will go from undestanding the problem to prototyping a solution. room: Q01

Project Management - Exclusive to LX Reactor participants 

This workshop’s objective is to provide the groups with the necessary tools for developing collaborative work efficiently and provide them with the ability to work remotely with each individual always knowing what everyone is doing and what he has to do.
It will focus in known software like Trello, Github and Huboard, TeamGantt and develop concepts related with Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration and Software Development Workflow.
It is meant to be an introduction workshop and there is no need for previosly contact with the software and subject. room: P8

Solid Edge – Applications Available for the repetition

Whether you know something about 3D modelation or not, this workshop is for you!
Firstly we will focus on the primary tools that Solid Edge provides for modelling some parts, and then move to assemble those parts in a final product.
In the last part of the workshop we will address the basic notions on how to simulate stress and strain on your parts, which is a vital tool in nowadays’ engineering for product development. room: LEMAC

Git & GitHub – Applications Available

Git is a distributed revision control and source code management system. GitHub is a web-based hosting service for software development projects that use the Git revision control system. This workshop is an introduction to Git and GitHub. You will learn what these tools are, what they allow you to do and the basics on how to use them to organise your software and non-software projects. Examples will be given and you are expected to follow them through the workshop. room: P8

note: please bring Git installed on your machine so that the workshop can start right away. Creating a GitHub account is optional and can be done during the workshop.

Build a Website: Drupal – Applications Available

Drupal is an open source framework for creating and managing websites. In this workshop you will learn, step by step, how to build and manage simple websites with Drupal. This workshop will be provided by Comunidade Drupal Portugal, the portuguese community for Drupal. room: P8

note: you need to set up Drupal in your computer before the workshop. Details will be given via e-mail in case you enroll this workshop. You can also go here to learn how to set up Drupal on your computer (instructions start at slide 43).

Electronics – SOLD OUT

During this workshop you will learn the basics of analog electronics, and components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors and integrated circuits, which are the building blocks of all the modern electronic circuits. It will be fun, and you will learn interesting facts that students usually don’t learn in the more boring and traditional electronics courses. You will build 3 simple circuits during the workshop. room: P8

Robotics and Control – SOLD OUT

In this workshop you will learn the basics of robotics and control, from movement equations to their application on a robot based on the Magician chassis. Attedants will hopefully be able to apply this knowledge to other robots. room: P8

note: you need to install Arduino IDE  on your computer before this workshop.

Arduino: Hands-on – Applications Available for the repetition

This workshop aims to show you simple ways in which you can make your project interact with the world.  Movement, light and sound sensors will be used along with LEDs, speakers and other actuators.
This workshop is directed at those who have some experience with Arduino and/or programming and are interested in hands-on examples. room: P8

note: you need to install Arduino IDE  on your computer before this workshop.
