- Alternativas a una red no neutral
To give preferential treatment to the traffic of suppliers with whom operators sign premium agreements is negative for most individuals and small initiatives. To a large extent, the social impact that the internet has meant is the result of the characteristics of its design and architecture (model of layers and point-to-point), which makes it possible to innovate at each level of the network, without the need for central control, or what is the same, being neutral.

With the objective of looking at what a nonneutral network means, we are offering two workshops:

March 8:
First workshop: We will delve into the principle of neutrality and learn about different alternatives to a non-neutral network.

March 22:
Second workshop: Practical workshop in building a router from RaspBerry Pi and Tor

- How a network works?

It is essential to have some basic notions to be able to take care of what we have or propose alternatives that benefit us. These two workshops are aimed at identifying, studying and reflecting on matters in the technological environment that affect social issues.

There are computer networks and people networks. There is a society-network. But what is a network and how does it work?

In the workshop we will learn to identify where there are networks (computers, people...), what they are used for, what their merits are, where their strengths and weaknesses are... Because understanding networks is the first step to keeping them, taking care of them and defending them.

- How does an open source community work?

It is essential to have some basic notions to be able to take care of what we have or propose alternatives that benefit us. These two workshops are aimed at identifying, studying and reflecting on matters in the technological environment that affect social issues.

Networks make it possible to organise broad communities which, in many cases, acquire a productive dimension (software, knowledge...). What is a community that produces open source code or knowledge and how does it work?

In the workshop we will learn to identify their codes and how to move within them. And we will observe whether these codes can be translated to other less technological contexts.

- Google maps is not the map
Workshop on public digital maps

Montera34 will introduce public digital maps to an audience that is not necessarily specialised on the matter. The workshop consists of two parts: the theoretical part, where we will see different examples of maps, mapmaking tools which are more or less techniques for creating collaborative maps (OpenStreetmap, Mapbox, CartoDB), civic political or joint initiatives that have used the maps and data to support different.

- Workshop on analysing and visualising data for non-programmers
The aim of the workshop is to introduce the ecosystem of tools for the analysis and the visualization of the data without the need of knowledge of programming from the part of the assistants. In particular, every day it is orientated to an area: Acquisition and data processing, the world of the cartography and the analysis of networks. In spite of the fact that it will be entered thoroughly in the functionality of particular tools as Open Refine, CartoDB or Gephi, the idea of the workshop is to `draw´ the range of tools in order that the assistant is capable to the ending of having the necessary knowledge to choose the tool that is more suitable to the needs that will be came up. It is a workshop `to learn doing´ and it is necessary for the assistants to bring their laptops.The program of the workshop is the following one:  

April 1: Introtuction to the analysis of data: Stages.

  • The hierarchy of the knowledge
  • Tools of acquisition of information
  • Analysis of information and tools
  • Visualization of information and tools
  • Cleanliness of information with Open Refine. Exercise

April 20: Introduction to the cartography.

  • Systems of coordinates
  • Types of projections
  • Types of geographical information
  • Tiling
  • Tools
  • Cartographies with CartoDB. Exercises.

April 21: Introduction to the analysis of networks.

  • Graphs and metrics
  • Social Networks
  • Human perspectives about the SNA
  • Introduction to the analysis of networks with Gephi. Exercises.
