TWIST2018 Hackdays in Zürich

su-pa took part in the first TWIST2018 Hackdays !

9 teams were formed on site using and experimenting with open and linked data in collaboration. Besides a lot of other data sets the Statistical Office of the City of Zurich has freshly decided to publish its data as Linked Open Data at the very day of the TWIST2018 Hackdays.

Our hack team created the Zurich's big 5 project together. It's about newcomers in Zurich: Which city quarter matches your preferences? You can find it out by ranking the 5 predefined criteria. The results of data analysis, SPARQL queries and programming are shown in an interactive map. Check it out!

Connect Zurich and Izmir - an experimental students' project

do'r waste my energy - save-energy.tipsThe ZürIzmir partner class project was an ambitious one in the sense of having differences in culture, language, education and infrastructure but also in respect of a relatively short time frame.

The students had the opportunity to do team research on self chosen environmental topics and experience that communication between team members (or from Zurich or from Izmir) can be a challenge. However, after having succeeded this experimental project and looking back, some lessons can be drawn for a next partner class project.

Flying over Taft - San Andreas Fault, California Aqueduct, etc.

How fortunate we have been at December 26 ! On the way in Southern California, we arrived at the little airport in Taft where we had the opportunity to fly in a propeller plane over the beautiful Californian landscape. About this experience we created a short video.

Auf unserer US-Reise traf uns am 26. Dezember 2014 das Glück aus heiterem Himmel - wir konnten mit einem Oldtimer-Propeller-Flugzeug über die fantastische südkalifornische Landschaft fliegen. Daraus entstand ein kurzer Film.

„Wenn Menschen beginnen, in Kreisläufen zu denken, werden sie auch beginnen, generationenübergreifend in Kreisläufen zu planen und zu realisieren."

“When people start to think in cycles, they will also begin to plan and to implement in cross-generational cycles”

Im Hinblick auf die von suter & partner geplante Technik & Umwelt Internet-Plattform sind Stoff- und Materialkreisläufe ein wichtiges Thema. Daher besuchten wir am 29.05.2015 zusammen mit Freunden ein Workshop zum Thema "Cradle to Cradle" an der Uni Konstanz.
