November 6 – UnixDEI @ DEI – A Saturday of talks for the unix geeks all around.
November 21-22 – Portuguese Hacklabs Meeting @ Casa das Artes – The Audiência Zero gathers all their Coimbra, Lisbon and Porto labs in an open weekend to present projects, share knowledge and develop new ideias.
December 4 – Coimbra Codes #2 @ IPN – Three 20min talks: Graph Databases (by my former student Pedro Paredes), Ansible and AWS deploys (by Vasco Pinho) and Property-Based Testing in Scala (by my former advisor Paulo Marques). I am also an advocate for property-based testing, although I believe Haskell works bests for this purpose.
December 12 – Portugal Google Developer Groups Summit @ DEI – Developers of Google-based services from Portugal, and maybe some from Spain will meet in Coimbra, with some Google developers coming as guests.
December 16 – Android Talks #2 @ Nest – Three 20 minute talks (I see a pattern here) about Android Development. If you are an hardcore developer, you’ll feel at home. If you are starting, you will get the idea anyway.
You may have noticed that we are going to have two gamedev marathons very close, which may mean that we will not have our local version dubbed The Game of Games with local prizes.
October 31 to November 29 – Ano Zero – A whole lot of art expositions and performances.
December 4-6 – Comic-Con @ Porto – Not in Coimbra, but big and close enough to be mentioned here.
December 17 – StarWars Episode XII – The Force Awakens
I intend to make this a periodic thing. If something is missing, please let me know.
