A Day for Programmers

Under the hood, most of the things we deal with on a daily basis as programmers leave a trace of the fusion of art, creativity, and logic. A trace that belongs to programmers. How good it is that one day of the year is dedicated to programmers so that their value and work can be recognized more than ever before. The 256th day of the year, which is the last power of 2 in the current calendar, is a very valuable day for programmers. In this regard, the Tabriz Open Source Sessions group has launched a campaign to register this day on the national calendar. If you are interested in participating and signing up, please visit this website and enter your details.

Update: The first celebration of the Iranian Programmer’s Day will be held simultaneously in Tabriz (Paradise Cafe) and Sari (Nava Cafe) at 5 pm on November 30, 2014 (Azar 10, 1393). Attendance is free for all interested parties and there will be a special discount on the cafe menu.

Update: Shargh newspaper has supported the registration of this day. We appreciate their support.

Creative Mornings Tabriz

Monthly Creative Mornings sessions will be held in Iran simultaneously with 100 cities around the world. With the help of the executive team of Gap Graphic, Tabriz is the first city in Iran and the region to successfully obtain representation and host this event. In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (swissmiss) launched the CreativeMornings sessions with the dream of creating a continuous and accessible event for the creative community in New York. The overall idea was simple: breakfast and a short talk on a Friday of each month. All sessions are free and open to the public, and the costs are covered by financial supporters. Today, participants gather every month in over 100 cities around the world and enjoy fresh tea and a brief breakfast with likable people. Organizers of these branches in different cities do not organize these sessions just for the enjoyment of creative and talented individuals, but they aim to create an interactive and open space for like-minded people to connect. Renowned speakers at CreativeMornings include Michael Bierut, Erik Spiekermann, Debbie Millman, Aaron Draplin, Mike Monteiro, Simon Sinek, Maria Popova, and Nick Campbell.

The trial session of this event was held on August 6th, 2014, in collaboration with the cultural and artistic organization of Tabriz municipality at the Mofakhar Azarbayjan Hall, and with a speech by Mr. Karim Zeinati. From now on, these sessions will be held by the executive team of Gap Graphic in Tabriz, one of the first cities to host them.

To participate in this free event, you can visit Tabriz city’s specific page on the CreativeMornings website after registering on the website. If you are interested, you can register for the event defined for the month. You can follow the news related to this event on the website and the social media pages of Gap Graphic Tabriz.

Startup Weekend Tabriz

The Startup Weekend in Tabriz started on August 27 and was a joint event of the Tabriz Log and OpenTalks software community. Despite the good and bad events, what remained was the friendship that was valuable to me and the memories that always bring a smile to my face. I am confident that there is a feeling of fondness among the entire organizing team. John Lee also contributed a lot. With his energy, as he said, he received from drinking coffee, he infused it into all the kids and made the event the best and most exciting possible. Many of my friends asked why there are no photos of Liveblog or why nothing has been written about it, etc. On behalf of the Liveblog team, I apologize to all these dear people and hope to make up for this shortfall in future events. I thank all the organizers, mentors, volunteers, photographers, videographers, and the Liveblog team for their presence, which was surely a big gap in the event.

Finally, I would like to thank Salar Kaboli, Jadi and Mrs. Majidi for their presence, which gave extra energy to everyone, and for having a conversation with these dear people, which is one of my greatest honors. Looking forward to future events and the visit of our dear friends.
