Man versus nature

Me hiking

Some friends in Oradea are big hikers. They had plans to go to Curcubăta Mare, the highest peak on a 500 km radius, being at 1849m, but they were always foiled by weather. Finally they decided to go last Saturday, because the tem­per­a­ture had risen slightly and the forecast wasn't too cloudy. They invited me to go along, so I joined the group of 5 people.

We went by car to Vârtop, which is a ski resort. On the way there we saw some beautiful winter landscapes. I didn't know that Romania could be so amazing in winter. You definitely don't need to go 1200 kilometers continue.

50 Apps

Am găsit pe Internet o provocare in­tere­san­tă: să faci 50 de aplicații, mai mult sau mai puțin complexe, în 50 de săptămâni, folosind limbaje și frame­workuri diferite. 50 Apps in 50 weeks este denumirea oficială și aici se propun și temele pentru apli­cați­ile fiecărei săptămâni.

Mi se pare o activitate ed­u­cațion­ală superbă, pentru că într-un an îți bagi lăbuțele în C, C++, Java, Javascript, Objective-C, F#, Closure, Scala, Ruby, Python, PHP, Erlang, Lisp, PL SQL, Pascal, Ada, Assembly, Go, JRuby, HTML 5, Flash, Visual Basic, C#, OpenGL și abordezi multe domenii diferiteȘ Games, Social Networking, Graphics (3D 2D), Algorithm and Data structures, Business, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Education, Embedded (Robotics), Dev tools, AI, Multimedia, continue.
