I like to keep myself occupied, previously exemplified by my involvement in several student organizations while I studied (one in which I still partake with my time and effort, albeit in diminishing manner). Since I completed my master thesis this fall, I’ve tried to limit my involvement, and concentrate on work and getting on route with my life as a professional. I believe myself to be on the right path now, and hope to increase my involvement once again, as this post will describe.
Aside from my studies and part-time job, I’m partaking in the activities of Cybernetisk Selskab [no], a student driven association working to improve the social environment at the Department of Informatics. As a member of the board, I’m frequently involved in the different activities arranged, and one of them is the CybWebDev.
Currently we’re focused on Aurora, the codename for a system which aims to be an array of tools supporting the organizational work in CYB. This, we believe, will be especially important when Escape opens, the student driven pub that will open along with the opening of Ole Johan Dahls Hus [no], the newest addition of buildings at the University of Oslo, which will be the base of most of the educational, academic and social activities concerning the students of computer science.
In doing the preparations for this development, we’ve discussed some principles/guidelines that we wish to follow when designing/coding, and I thought I would share them with you here.
