Our eruptive Sun

Our star – the Sun is not as quiet as it may seem on a warm summers day from your backyard. In reality the Sun regularly erupts thousands of millions of hot plasma in so called coronal mass ejections. These solar eruptions can create beautiful aurora, but also cause the destruction of satellites orbiting our planet.

Talk by Tina Ibsen, Head of Science and Outreach at the Tycho Brahe Planetarium. With a  degree in astrophysics from Copenhagen University, Tina originally specialised in space weather and solar eruptions. 

10:30 - 10:35

Facilitator: Daniel Cermak-Sassenrath, Associate Professor and member of the Center for Computer Games Research at the ITU


How to Fake It: Mock Ups, Prototypes and Demos - Which kinds of presentations exist, and what are they good for? This workshop covers mock ups, prototypes and demos. These are characterized and their successful application is discussed. Hands-on practical tips are offered for participants' projects.

Stardust St III - Aud. 4

Facilitator:  Daniel Lazarovici (Mentor, Codher)

Topic: Animations using GreenSock library

“Knowing how to code is like having a superpower, a power you can use to change the world!”

Technology can be powerful force that can be used for good, whether helping governments better serve its citizens or help in solving challenges our world is facing in faster, more collaborative, data-driven ways.

During this workshop, Codher will introduce you to GreenSock- ultra high-performance, professional-grade animation platform for the modern web used on more than 65% of award winning websites.

Why animation? Well, why not?

Animations are a huge part of making compelling web applications and sites, as users have come to expect highly responsive and interactive user interfaces.

This workshop is for you whether you have no coding experience at all or you are an experienced web developer.

15:45 - 16:00 

Talk by Benjamin Hervit from the 2016 SA team Sometimes Science is more Art than Science - Recognizing what you can and what you cannot do during the Hackathon
