    Short introduction to the Porto Codes project.

  3. Living inside GNU Emacs, by André Alexandre Gomes

    Today’s technological world is both exciting and alarming.

    Exciting because we have the tools to solve the challenging problems of our overpopulated planet. The vision of a connected, peaceful and fair world feels closer than ever.

    Alarming because tech companies provide tons of malware that people greet without questioning - exchanging their freedom for a fake sense of pleasure and a fake sense of productivity.

    In this talk, I will show that GNU Emacs is the perfect environment for a focused and free life in a world full of corrupted people and bullshit.

  4. Dinner and ice cream

    Join us for dinner, usually at Estambul Doner Kebap. Come rain or shine, we go for ice cream at Santini.
