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!

During our Far East trip we got to know Willy Chen who became our friend. We decided spontaneously to create a website about Lanyu, also known as Orchid Island, a small Pacific Island located at the most Eastern point of Taiwan.
W2W - The students' website project is growing!
Everything started with the idea of having a website created by students last year. And it worked out fine as you could see in our previous post about don't waste My Energy. Now this year the students' website save-energy.tips is going to be widened in the sense of "don't waste My Resources" and "embodied energy".
