Commodore Graz

Commodore enthusiasts gather and exchange informations, floppy disks, instructions, Know-How and repair instructions. But also games and competitions find their place in the meetings. In addition, the still used 8bit or 16bit output of computer systems gets discussed. This results in interdisciplinary real-time demonstrations of programming, music, images and animation on the original computers.

While initiating the a platform for those already working with it, we would like to inspire you to take an approach on (old) computer systems, focussing on understanding rather than just consuming or using it. So, not only are current developments better understood, but our devices also guarantee a decelerated approach to using electrical devices.

Agile Graz Meetup

Agile Graz Meetup is intended to offer the opportunity to exchange experiences and thoughts on agile methods in and beyond software development to its participants.

Main concern of Agile Graz is to serve as a local Platform for exchange of knowledge and networking. In particular, we want to emphasize that we are interested in all methods, processes and ideas that identify with the agile values according to the agile manifesto:

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
