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!

*We had a blast meeting engaged hackers, expanding knowledge and skills. And all took place in a friendly atmosphere and well organized context.
supa has a brand new web server, a Windows Server 2016 with IIS 10 which is currently (one of) the most robust server, both in security and performance issues available.
- The server runs as a VM (Virtual Machine) on Microsoft Azure
- About 20 web apps are running on the web server, inclusive save-energy.tips, the students' project website (WordPress).
- "The horses" (the working and interaction environment for students and teachers, more infos on teachingweb.org) are not on the new web server but all previous "horses" More...
We had the honor to present the concept of "The horse" at two conferences.
Eliane Suter delivered speeches.
The first event was the "bili-Erfa-Tagung 2018: digital und analog", a cantonal meeting at the Zurich University of teacher education (PHZH) and the 2nd took place at the national wide event "Forum de la maturité professionnelle 2018" in Martigny (VS) organized by IFFP (Institute fédéral des hautes études en formation professionnelle).
In the context of the events we created the mini website teachingweb.org containing the main info material of the concept "The horse".
How to Swirl ?
Go to www.swirls.fun, move the things around with your mouse or fingers and see what happens!
Admittedly started as a little "Happy-new-year-experiment" for you & us: "Wet, breezy, fiery, down-to-earth - the elements can be elegantly moved quite as how one might wish in everyday life." Swirls is more for us, it's a kind of concept that we like to play with and hope to find the time and people to pursue.
Launch of the brand new website for the VR&S - Verein Risiko & Sicherheit.

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.
