Media Night Apps

This year there is something new on the Media Night, the student fair at our university.

The booklet is dead!

In its past, the Media Night had had a printed booklet with its program and time table in it. The booklet was produced by one of our printing faculties for which the HdM is pretty famous. It was distributed for free during the evening of the fair.

Long live the booklet!

However, since this semester the good old booklet is history! Instead of it, the Media Night has a brand new app with all projects, students and even an indoor navigation. You can find it in Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.

Most innovative projects

But why only have one app if you could have two? In case you have an Apple iPad or iPhone you can get an app about the 10 most innovative projects of this Media Night. And – TechTrends is one of it!

I hope you enjoy the apps, the projects and the evening.

Media Night Winter Semester 2013/2014

opinion-trends-poster

During the last summer semester, two friends of mine and I made a student project called TechTrends. TechTrends was a web application that let you search for articles and trends in the field of computer science. Based on posts from Reddit and Hackernews, it provided an intelligent search on a growing number of articles and blogs.

During this winter semester I continued the project and implemented a sentiment analysis for TechTrends. Based on the existing infrastructure such as our database and our crawler, I add an automated categorization of articles according to their comments on Hackernews and Reddit.

You can find the old and stable version of our project under http://techtrends.mi.hdm-stuttgart.de/. The up-to-date development version is available under http://opiniontrends.mi.hdm-stuttgart.de/.

I will present the project at the Media Night at our university next week. It’s open for everybody and for free. It will start around 6 pm, but you can come whenever you want to, there is no schedule. Every project has its own booth, where it is presented and where you can ask question and get in touch with the people behind it.

You can find the program and information about all projects on http://www.hdm-stuttgart.de/medianight.

Media Night Review

Raphael Brand, Hannes Pernpeintner and I presented our semester project yesterday on the Media Night at our university. It was very nice to met some interested people, to answer their questions and to show what we did during the last four months. Thanks.

Here are some impressions of last night. Our project is still online on http://techtrends.mi.hdm-stuttgart.de/. We will run it as long as we can.

Best regards,
Thomas Uhrig
