Seoul Chapter

What was the last paper within the realm of computing you read? What did it inspire you to build or tinker with? Come share the ideas in an awesome academic/research publication with fellow engineers, programmers, and paper-readers. Lead a session and show off code that you wrote that implements these ideas or just give us the lowdown about the paper. Otherwise, just come, listen, learn, and discuss.

We'll be using papers-we-love's curated repository. Please contribute by adding PR's for papers, code, and/or links to other repositories.

PWL Seoul strictly adheres to the Code of Conduct set forth by all PWL charters.

Along with some long-winded history on why this little project began, the following will be covered:
Why is ionizing radiation something meaningful to measure?
Why is displaying of ionizing rad. a user experience headache.
"Would you like to come up and see my etchings?"
(Er, I mean, would you like to come up and see my low-cost PCB manufacturing process?)
An IOT "Hello World", using any ESP8266 board and Blynk.
Q and A for low-cost embedded devices.

Refining the test phase of usability evaluation: how many subjects is enough?Virzi, R. A. (1992)  

Description:  Want to get a reaction? Just mention  testing with five users to anyone in software development. Few topics elicit more emotion than  small sample sizes in user testing. Robert Virzi's paper codified this number into UX history. It was one of a few papers which showed how to use the Binomial (or Poisson) distributions to arrive at the now famous formula

What is LaunchLab?

As part of the Launch - Hack - Tell cycle of innovation, SeoulTech is proud to announce the Launch Lab series of meetups.  This is a new type of event where researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators discuss and propose (any) project, and solicit ideas and help from other SeoulTech members.


Launch Lab helps members take one giant leap beyond networking. These events allow members  to get involved with the creation of new ideas or startups, while forging friendships and business partnerships to last a lifetime. 


The event features a group of speakers that give a 10 to 15 minute presentation of their idea. The audience then discusses the idea. Audience members can also choose to join or further contribute to the project.

Open discussion sessions will also be available, so if anyone gets in…

Practice for Google Code Jam with Prof. David of Algorithms

Date/Time: 2013-03-10 01:00pm Location: false

Google Code Jam 2013 contest to solve tough algorithmic puzzles is coming. The registration is on March, 12.

For free, practice algorithms, have fun and may travel to London and win $15,000*.


And I've just got the idea that we can refresh our knowledge of algorithms together.

Moreover, we are very lucky because Prof. David Wagner of Algorithms and Programming at Hanyang University agreed to give us a brief overview of the algorithms.


If you have any programming experience, give it a try. The competition is not easy at all but will be a good experience.



Currently, I plan to do it at my home where there may be place for 6~10 people and we can meet for free. This is a specific topic so I don't expect that more than 10 people will join.

But everyone is welcome and can bring friends. If more people …
