      Most people know that if they attempt hacking online, there is a genuine possibility of going to jail… if they get caught! But what if you could hack and be able to enjoy the money - legally?

      Jupyter notebooks are pretty amazing. They can run code and keep in one place visualizations, equations and pretty-formatted text as well. With notebooks it's extremely easy to produce and share results in a comprehensible format and so they make the perfect tool for data analysis. I'll give a sneak peek on their wide range of uses and what we are doing at Indico to help their adoption at CERN.

      Everware is a project that allows you to edit and run someone else's code with one click, even if that code has complicated setup instructions. The main aim of the project is to encourage reuse of software between researchers by making it easy and risk free to try out someone else's code.

      An ad-blocker plugin in your browser stops advertisements and maybe some malware. But is it enough? Are you feeling secure while surfing the Web? If your answer is yes, think twice! What else can you do to protect yourself?

      Not enough buttons on your keyboard? Do you want more fancy notifications that don't clutter your screen or fade away? It's easy to build your own hardware to change this.
