Galactic Coders

Group of technology enthusiasts teaming up to create impactful solutions by leveraging technology.

About Us

We are passionate about technology and the tremendous possibilities it offers to create a positive impact in the world we live in. We want to share our knowledge, collaborate with people from different domain/background, and work together to achieve a common goal of making the world a better place.

Our dream is to have such a place where ideas can take shape and projects can be put into practice. Moving forward, we want to organize events and activities ranging from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. To meet, brainstorm ideas, work towards a solution and not just get lost in problems, is the goal we wish to accomplish.


Events

CS50x Puzzle Day 2019

Do you like solving puzzles? Then, this event might interest you.

Let's team up and help each other solve the puzzles. We will be hosting the event on Monday, the 1st of April, 2019 at 6 PM at Foo Cafe, Stockholm.

The Puzzle Day itself starts at 00:00 Friday, 29th of March 2019, and ends before 23:59 on Monday, the 1st of April, 2019. The packet of puzzles to be solved will be available at https://cs50.github.io/puzzles on 29th March 2019. However, we will be meeting up at Foo Cafe, Stockholm for 3 hours on Monday.

What will we do at the event?
Since the puzzles to be solved will already be out by Friday, everyone is expected to have seen the puzzles and attempted to solve it individually or with friends before the event day. We have a slack channel to communicate over the weekend: https://galacticcoders.slack.com/ , where you can post ideas, discuss problems if you get stuck or need some cues.

On Monday, the 1st of April, we will all meet up with each other and discuss the problems that we worked on over the weekend, get unstuck or help fellow teammates get unstuck. We will discuss the approaches to solve these puzzles.

All you have to do is :
1. Register for the CS50x Puzzle day through this link: https://cs50.ly/register
2. Check out the puzzles starting with Friday, 29th of March from this link: https://cs50.github.io/puzzles/
3. If you are stuck, we also have a slack channel to help each other solve the puzzles. Here is the link to the channel: https://bit.ly/2uoK542

Projects

Crivobara Open Library

Our first Project "Crivobara Open Initiative" involves building an open library in the village of Romania. We have already initiated the project and are excited to see it take shape.

We want to revive a dying village in the west hills of Romania by buying and reconditioning old houses from the village. Each of them will have a well-defined purpose - a library, place for STEM workshops, amphitheater, and a place to create pottery, iron smithing, woodworking, and there will also be hobbit houses in the hill. The goal is to document the entire process of reconditioning and share a DIY tutorial online via Patreon, Youtube, Twitter, and Instructables. We hope that doing so will inspire others to take similar initiative and at the same time exhibit what it means to recondition old houses instead of destroying and rebuilding.

Open Crivobara Project is for children and adults alike. In general, children tend to lean more towards technology while adults towards tradition and sustainability. We want to offer a place where ideas can take shape and projects can be put into practice, a place where culture and modern technology can fuse. When the Library is complete, we plan to organize weekly meetups, events, and classes like Coder's Dojo, Arduino, Raspberry Pi Jam, 3D printing, Robotics, and other fun and inquisitive challenges.
