This week Smart Technologies organized a Hackathon. The allotted time to solve the challenge is 5 hours. Unfortunate we (Casper Koning and myself) came in second. But according to the jury the first three placed teams performed equal. (The winning team implemented a “nicer” concept.) ##The Problem The Dutch railways are looking into a solution for counting the passengers in the cabin of trains.

Video of code & comedy Recently Casper Koning and myself did a presentation about machine learning and motion sensors titled: Are you doing it the right way. The presentation explains the steps we have taken on how to utilize a motion detector and machine learning to predict the execution of an exercise. The general idea behind it is that when a subject does a exercise a feedback is required in order to do it efficiently and correctly.

What? the command dd has know output when running for example: sudo dd if=~/linuxmint-17.3-cinnamon-64bit.iso of=/dev/sdb1 oflag=direct bs=1048576 shows no output, is just finished when done. for a slow USB disk or a large image that can be some time.

Submodules with git Just recently a was working on a presentation for a event that my boss organizes. I stumbled across a nice thing you can do with Git. The presentation is created in Reveal.js the aspect that i like about it that you can treat your presentation as code. Still working on the subject to do it with AsciiDoc. On the latter; The documentation says it should be easy but I do not have enough control on the output.
