Fredagsbar 2020-04-17: GNU Parallel

(Ole Tange) #1

Hej

Som I måske ved, er jeg hovedkraften bag softwaren GNU Parallel. GNU Parallel fylder 10 år næste år (altså i 2020).

Til Surveil_IT i Ry foreslog jeg over en øl at holde en fredagsbar til fejring af GNU Parallels 10 års fødselsdag (som er næste år 2020-04-22 – men med fest fredagen før). Det var der fin opbakning til.

Givet at temaet er parallel kunne det være skægt, om der blev holdt parallelle fester i Kbh, Århus, Odense og andre steder (se andre tema-ideer nedenfor).

Jeg har fået grønt lys for at låne lokalerne i Kbh d. 2020-04-17 kl. 15, så her kommer der til at ske noget. Umiddelbart vil det være Privat-Ole, der holder receptionen, men hvis nu PROSA Ung/STUD havde lyst til at holde en fredagsbar samme fredag, så kunne det nemt ændres til et PROSA-arrangement, hvor PROSA-medlemmer og GNU Parallel brugere var inviterede.

Forslag til invitation:

You are hereby invited to a reception on Friday 2020-04-17.

The primary reception will be held in Copenhagen, DK, but if you cannot make it, you are encouraged to host a parallel party.

So far we hope to have parallel parties in Århus, DK, and Odense, DK.

If you want to host a party held in parallel (either in this or in a parallel universe), please let me know, so it can be announced.

If you have parallel ideas for how to celebrate GNU Parallel, please post on the email list parallel@gnu.org. So far we have the following ideas:

  • Use GNU Parallel logo (the café wall illusion) as decoration everywhere – preferably in a moving version where the bars slide. Maybe we can borrow this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XFDnFLqRFE or make an animation in javascript based on https://bl.ocks.org/Fil/13177d3c911fb8943cb0013086469b87?

  • Only serve beverages in parallel (2 or more), which may or may not be the same kind of beverage, and may or may not be served to the same person, and may or may not be served by multiple waiters in parallel

  • Let people drink in parallel with straws (2 or more straws)

  • Serve popcorn as snack (funny because cores and kernels are the same word in Danish, and GNU Parallel keeps cores hot)

  • Serve saltstænger and similar parallel snacks.

  • Live parallel streaming from parallel parties

  • Play songs in parallel that use the same 4 chords: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pidokakU4I

  • Play songs named parallel, serial, mutex, race condition and similar

  • Have RC racing cars to demonstrate race condition

  • Put a counting semaphore on the toilets

  • Only let people leave one at a time to simulate serialized output – UNLESS they swap some clothing (to simulate half line mixing)

Hvad siger I? Vil I være med?

Antaget at jeg stadig bor og arbejder i Odense så vil jeg da gerne hjælpe med at arrangere noget her :slight_smile:
