Sprint Project: [email protected]

No pas­sa­do fim-de-sema­na decor­reu mais um Lab Sprint AZ. Ao con­trá­rio do habi­tu­al, des­ta vez saí­mos do nos­so lab e diri­gi­mo-nos de armas e baga­gens para a aldeia de Maçal do Chão na região da Ser­ra da Estre­la. A nos­sa equi­pa era cons­ti­tuí­da por Móni­ca Men­des do altLab, João Car­va­lho, Pedro Ânge­lo e Ricar­do Lobo do LCD e Tia­go Ser­ra do xDA (que não pôde par­ti­ci­par nes­ta eta­pa mas com quem con­ti­nu­a­mos a con­tar para desen­vol­vi­men­to futu­ros). No Maçal, tinha­mos os nos­sos cor­res­pon­den­tes locais a pos­tos, Val­ter Cruz e André Cor­reia.
O objec­ti­vo para este Sprint era dar o pon­ta­pé de saí­da no pro­jec­to [email protected] pro­pos­to pela Móni­ca — para além de ter par­ti­ci­pa­do acti­va­men­te, no Sprint ela­bo­rou uma repor­ta­gem deta­lha­da sobre o mes­mo no seu blog. Este tex­to é ape­nas um bre­ve resu­mo des­sa repor­ta­gem, de lei­tu­ra essen­ci­al não só pela des­cri­ção do tra­ba­lho desen­vol­vi­do, mas tam­bém pelo regis­to do con­ví­vio, de degus­ta­ção obri­ga­tó­ria.

O objec­ti­vo para este Sprint era cons­truir um pro­tó­ti­po da ins­ta­la­ção onde, no exte­ri­or, as pes­so­as abra­ças­sem uma árvo­re, sen­do essa inte­rac­ção regis­ta­da por uma câma­ra e envi­a­da para o inte­ri­or da ins­ta­la­ção, onde os par­ti­ci­pan­tes pode­ri­am então ver e mani­pu­lar esse regis­to numa inter­fa­ce dinâ­mi­ca.

As far as elec­tro­nics everything is almost good to go with some minor twe­aks, but I’m facing a giant pro­blem now.

Any help is wel­co­me ple­a­se con­tact me to lj dot [email protected] dot unl dot pt (repla­ce “dot” for “.”).

Fee­ding 15 sle­ep depri­ved hac­kers is not an easy task and during the AZ Resi­dency only 3 peo­ple were bra­ve enough to put their culi­nary talents to the test: Joel, Vitor and Mari­a­na. Everyo­ne agre­ed that their home­ma­de meals were awe­so­me and no bug reports were filed. Sin­ce we beli­e­ve in sha­ring, here are Joel’s deli­ci­ous open sour­ce reci­pes (in fren­ch com­me il faut):

altlab goes on vacation


Sin­ce it’s really hot and most of our mem­bers are hea­ded towards the bea­ch for some well deser­ved vaca­ti­ons, we won’t be hol­ding our Tues­day night public ses­si­ons until the end of August. Have a gre­at sum­mer and see you in Sep­tem­ber!

Caros ami­gos: o esta­be­le­ci­men­to altlab encon­tra-se encer­ra­do até ao final do mês de Agos­to para des­can­so do pes­so­al. A gerên­cia agra­de­ce a vos­sa pre­fe­rên­cia e espe­ra ver-vos de novo em Setem­bro 🙂

AZLabs @ O Espaço do Tempo

After many days of work, stress and fun, we seem to have mana­ged to pull through 10 pro­jects to show­ca­se at O Espa­ço do Tem­po! The exhi­bi­ti­on ope­ned yes­ter­day, 12th July at Con­ven­to da Sau­da­ção and will remain in exhi­bit until the end of the month.

We also have a mini-site with bios of the authors and des­crip­ti­ons of the works, tem­po­ra­rily hos­ted here. Not only of the works pre­sent at the exhi­bi­ti­on but also a few others deve­lo­ped during the resi­dency that couldn’t be exhi­bi­ted by one rea­son or another. Check them out!

Big thanks are in order to everyo­ne at O Espa­ço do Tem­po for the oppor­tu­nity we had, and all the in loco sup­port to our needs, you rock. 🙂
