Sekadar informasi, elementary OS adalah Distro Linux turunan dari Ubuntu yang menggunakan Desktop Environment buatan mereka sendiri, yaitu Pantheon. elementary OS juga merupakan salah satu Distro Linux yang menurut saya memiliki tampilan elegan, simple, dan enak dipandang mata ketimbang distro-distro lainnya yang mayoritas tampilannya terkesan kurang “kekinian“.

#HackBDG – Mozilla Webmaker Workshop

This is very-late post since i have some serious problem to my health condition.

Here we go..

We’re holding our “#HackBDG – Mozilla Webmaker Workshop” event on 6th September 2014. The event also part of Maker Party, the Mozilla’s global campaign to teach the Web.

In this event, there are 3 Mozilla Reps joining. They are Muhammad Fadhil (me as event host), Fauzan Alfi, and Risman Rangga Pratama. There are 22 participant from around Bandung also joining this event, mostly student that also have a background in CS and Education. Things that we covered in the event are updates from Mozilla and it’s projects, Introduction to Webmaker + Demo of the Tools, and hack-the-web activity. Before we start, we do a spectrogram with Smart City and Internet as the topic, which is quite popular discussion in Bandung.

As usual, after the spectrogram session, we tell the participant to write down what their hope at the event on Post-It, and stick it to the “tree-of-hope”. Most of them wants to know more about Webmaker and how to contribute.

I started with an Intro about Mozilla and all it’s projects including the updates. Then i continue with Intro about Mozilla Webmaker and it’s tools. We are demo-ing how to use the Webmaker Tools. In this session, we use X-Ray Goggles, Thimble, Popcorn Maker, and App Maker. The participant looks excited and try to hack the web with those tools.

After the demo, we split the participant into a group to make a hack using Webmaker tools and do the hacking session. In this session, we tell that they must make at least 3 makes from 4 Webmaker tools with the theme “Your Dream Smart City”. This is really challenging to the participant to explore their creativity to make the Smart City of their version.

Review: Windows 8 RTM

Sebenarnya, saya sempat menggunakan Windows 8 dari versi Developer, Consumer, dan Release Preview. Hingga akhirnya saya dapat menggunakan versi RTM sekarang.

Karena pada Windows 8 ini, segalanya sudah dibuat lebih mudah lagi dari seri-seri sebelumnya. Bahkan, Windows 8 diklaim dapat berjalan pada Tablet PC sehingga hampir setiap tampilannya dibuat seperti semi-tablet.Dalam kesempatan ini, saya mengulas hal-hal seputar Windows 8 yang sudah berstatus RTM ini.
