Gestern am 30. September 2022 war der European Researchers’ Night in Wien. MACH’S AUF! und !@metalab durften sich von 15-24 Uhr an der Angewandte Wien präsentieren.
An unserer Station gab es Einblicke darin, wie die Weitergabe von Wissen und Innovation abseits von institutioneller Forschung funktioniert. Die Kinder konnten spielerisch ihren Namen in GS-Alphabet lernen und die Erwachsenen konnten ihr Wissen über die Gehörlosigkeit in einem Quiz testen.
Ein paar Impressionen vom Event:
This panel session is on fire 🔥🔥

I'm about to buy a new laptop from the Spanish firm Slimbook. It's Linux certified and will be powerful AF: Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU, 32GB of RAM and an 8GB Nvidia RTX 3070 GPU. What for? As Chandler would answer: "Games and stuff". XD
Nah, seriously. It'll be my brother's laptop, he's been using Linux for 2 years and he's used to it. So I'm confident enough to buy a Linux laptop for work and forget about problems when using Blender and some other heavy software.
He'll be the cool guy at the office!
