We started off the week with the [CAREER] Get There: Energy Data Hub workshop. It was very interesting and we found a lot of different approaches to the issues at hand when dealing with an energy data hub. During the week we also had the LaTeX Workshops, which I hope helped all the first years that were struggling with LaTeX.
On Thursday we had the Movie ThuNDr, which was a fun casual activity in the Cover room. People had a few beers, had a chat or watched the movie.
PS. My apologies that the newsletter is a day late!

Festimap is a brand new startup from Groningen founded by two Software Engineering-students from the Hanzehogeschool. They created a webapplication that allows you to find parties, performances and festivals easily. Nearby events can be seen on the map and filters give the possibility to search for specific genres and price ranges.
The subject of this TAD-Talk is how NLP could be used to improve Festimap's application.
