The Life in Oslo
BY 李濠仲HAO CHUNG LI
@ VOL 27
ON DEC 19, 2015
Mr. Li started by talking about Oslo department stores closed on Sundays, as well as citing some observed examples to show how Oslo is a city emphasizing the green environment, energy re-use, and equal gender rights. He also shared how Oslo is a low profile city, seen from its minimalist decoration, local personality, love of children, gay-friendliness, tolerance for multi-ethnic culture, and focus on environmental protection, sports and fitness. Mr. Li mentioned the establishment of the historical museum, 'Center for Studies of Holocaust and Religious Minorities' on the southern island of Oslo where the records of World War II and the civil war in Norway are kept: Norway is a city with the ability to look inside its soul.

PKN Kosice Vol. 5 and 6
We get a double-header from PechaKucha Night in Kosice today, as organizer Miso Hudak sends us reports for both volumes 5 and 6. We've also included a few photos from the events, but there's lots more to see in the following Flickr photosets: Vol. 5 and Vol. 6. Vol. 5 was a special event, where we invited small NGOs to show their works and projects. We decided to invite all these organization on one night because of past experience. If you bring together organizations who educate kids in poor regions populated by Roma/Gypsy minorities, and after that some great designer shows his plans for a new light airplane you will have mixed feelings. So we chose organizations and individuals who works with handicapped people, minorities, social disadvantaged groups and similar. The audience had the opportunity to focus on different topics like at any other other PechaKucha Night. Vol. 6 was also a special event, but for different reasons. We held a PechaKucha Night on March 8th -- International Women's Day. In our central Europe region we used to celebrate this holiday for decades. Now we have two similar special days for girls and women -- Mother's Day and International Women's Day -- and we celebrate them both equally! We invited nine ladies (fashion designer, architect, jewelery designer, stage designer, graphic designer, painter, dancer, graphic designer and experimental printmaker) who also received a flower before the presentation. We moved to a new venue, old military warehouses in the city center that are transforming into a cultural centre. We love this place and as you can see in the photos, everybody loves it. You would too! We used three projections, we greeted our thousandth spectator (now we are on number 1140 after 6 nights) at PechaKucha Night in Kosice -- it was a great night with outstanding vibes and atmosphere. It was the greatest PechaKucha in Kosice ever! Below, photos from PKN Kosice Vol. 6.
Developer Education Table Talks: Powered by PechaKucha
Software development is one of the fastest growing industries in the country, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting a 30% increase in jobs by 2020, more than double the average growth rate for all occupations. We’ve certainly seen an explosion in Chicago’s tech scene over the past several years, and along with this goes the issue of education. Who is going to train this next wave of developers, and what are the best teaching tools? How can we use mentorship to promote continued learning and improvement internally, and ensure current devs stay on top of the latest technologies and innovations? How will we reach groups typically under-represented in the dev world, like lower income individuals, certain ethnic minorities, and women? At Table XI we’ve been thinking a lot about the role of education and mentorship in this community. On Thursday, June 13, for our June Table Talks: Developer Education, we’ll be hearing PechaKucha-style presentations from some of Chicago’s best: Ray Hightower, organizer of ChicagoRuby and WindyCityRails - @rayhightower Paul Pagel, CEO and Co-founder of 8th Light - @paulwpagel Vince Cabansag, Director of Operations at The Starter League - @vcabansag Michael D. Hall, Founder of UGtastic - @just3ws Mike Busch, Instructor at Dev Bootcamp - @mikelikesbikes Isaac Sanders, Table XI development intern and mentor at Dev Bootcamp - @isaacsanders Stay tuned for these presentations on this channel, and in the meantime follow along at #TableTalks.
