Cracking Cuba's Code (Cortadito Computer Club)
July 21, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-5
Are you interested in diving head first into Cuba’s forthcoming technological renaissance?
Inspired by the Homebrew Computer Club, the Cortadito Computer Club is a think tank of programmers, engineers, and inventors that come together to exchange, brainstorm projects, and collaborate on innovative solutions to the social, political, and economic problems in Cuba.
July’s meeting will be as casual or as serious as you want it to be. We’d like to do introductions, share some ideas in the space, and then potentially split off into groups and build some idea shells once there are a few solid proposals on the table.
This initiative seeks to build on some of the great ideas and projects that came out of the first ever Hackathon for Cuba in January 2014: Apretaste, an e-mail-based marketplace inspired by Craigslist; Cuba Direct, an e-mail based app that allows users to access Google searches and Wikipedia articles offline; and a modified version of Raspberry Pi to store and disseminate information.
We hope to do something similar by pinpointing some big problems in Cuba and mapping out solutions. Offline communication is a hot topic, but by no means will it be the sole topic of conversation.
