45 Days of Fortune(r)?
Roy and the pallet shop
Computers, Ubuntu, stickers, Wikipedia, pallets… You have heard it before. What about the actual journey? We might not yet have told you, but it is almost all sorted! On our way from the shop where we bought the extension cords with multiple plug sockets (see the last blog post), I (Daniel) and Matilda discussed naming […]
Welcome to the CESA zoo!
Have the CESA 17 project been cancelled, you may wonder? No! Despite a very silent blog during the last couple of months, we have been very productive. A short summery: flight tickets have been purchased and the computers are ready to be shipped to South Africa. Now to the longer summary. Last time, we reported […]
Open your eyes and see… Computers!
The project keeps going on! What has happened since our last update? The computers have been cleaned, stickers have been removed and, last but not least, the computers now have new operating systems! Last Thursday evening was dedicated to the computers, with Daniel and Hampus starting to change operating systems from Windows to Ubuntu on […]
Lions sleep in the jungle, computers in…
Today we got the computers from Gothenburg City Västra Hisingen! With the help of some amazing people everything was moved into CESA’s room in less than half an hour, which without a doubt has to be some sort of world record. Huge thanks to Gothenburg City Västra Hisingen and Glenn yet again for making CESA’s work possible! […]
Finding more partners is wise! Findwise!
Finally, our computers have somewhere to sleep at night, just like the lions in Africa! Thanks to Chalmers, we will be located in a room in the Maskinhus at Campus Johanneberg. The room is quite big and is today used as a storage for a few tables and chairs. Uhm… a few was an understatement… […]
A boxing match
“Vendor independent IT consultants specialised in enterprise search, information management, search driven analytics and Big Data”. That is how Findwise describe themselves. And from today on, we can conclude that they will also continue their partnership with CESA. Today, we got the opportunity to meet Jessica Gold from Findwise for a lunch meeting at a […]
Hungry for sweat in Hluhluwe
Today, we were supposed to have a sponsor meeting. Unfortunately, our contact at the company got sick and the meeting is therefore postponed. Instead, we took a team building breakfast at a local cafe. This was very nice and cozy, and a wide range of things were discussed, including Hampus crazy (or rather messy) christmas […]
Hiphop? No, we prefer Opera!
According to Google Translate, “hluh luwe” means “sweat hungry” in Javanese, a language spoken in Java, Indonesia. That is probably just an unrelated coincidence, but never mind. It is now confirmed that we are going to Hluhluwe, a small town in the eastern part of South Africa, next year, just like so many other CESA […]
The Glenn of Gothenburg
For the fourth consecutive year, Opera Software will be our partner during the project. Today we visited Hanna Björk and Niklas Beischer at their office in Gothenburg and discussed the cooperation, and came to an agreement. This is the first year for Hanna, but Niklas has been involved since Opera’s first year with CESA.
Yesterday, we got the first glance of next year’s computers. Together with Samuel, our chairman, we took one of the electric cars at Chalmers and drove to the City of Gothenburg Västra Hisingen‘s (Swedish: Göteborgs Stad Västra Hisingen) office, since they are the donors of “our” computers. Once we arrived, the representative of Gothenburg, who like every […]
