It’s about drive, it’s about power, we stay hungry, we devour

Put in the work, put in the hours, and take what’s ours

I wish to thank everyone who has been a part of our chapter during 2021, both our electees and project leaders who have done an amazing job, and all our members who have participated in the activities that the chapter has held during the year. Despite the current situation in society, you have shown an amazing drive to create the best community for all of us to enjoy together. I’m looking forward to seeing what those who are staying on or just starting their elected period will achieve, and I 100% fully trust that it will be great!

With those words I whish you all a happy new year!

See you in the ring – Johan Hamredahl, President 2021

Thank you!

Vaccination certificates at the mulled wine chapter meeting

Hi again.

At the Mulled wine chapter meeting tomorrow we will have to validate vaccination certificates for all attendees, in accordance with the new guidelines from THS.

You can get your vaccine certificate at covidbevis.se.

If you are not vaccinated or you recieved your vaccine outside of the EU and therefore cannot get a vaccination certificate you will only be able to attend the chapter meeting if less than 100 people attend.

If you for medical reasons cannot get vaccinated you need to provide a medical certificate instead.

New guidelines from THS regarding COVID-19

Hi everyone!

THS has recently released new guidelines for COVID-19 based on the new restrictions from the Public Health Agency of Sweden. THS has concluded that all events within THS (including chapter activities) fall under general gatherings and we therefore need to follow these restriktions.

Ofcourse the previous restrictions still apply, which can be read about in detail here.

Besides these we want to emphasise the new requirements for vaccination certificates for attendees of events with more than 100 attendats. This means that for all events and activities hosted by the chapter where the number of attendats exceed 100 all attendants must show a valid vaccination certificate.

If you are vaccinated, and recieved your vaccine within EU, you can acquire your vaccine certificate at covidbevis.se. If you recieved your vaccine outside of the EU there is no way to currently get a vaccination certificate in Sweden and you can therefore not participate in events with more than 100 attendants. Persons who for medical reasons are unable to get vaccinated must be able to provide a medical certificate instead, as seen here

Note: I am not sure if there will be discussions in English or not.

Improvments to META

Hello! Next saturday the chapter hall group will have fix-stuff-in-the-chapter-hall-day therefore we are gathering suggestions for META. Do you feel like something is missing in the chapter hall or if something is broken then you can fill out this form and the chapterhall group will look into it.

Ior (sysadmins) is recruiting!

Ior, the chapter's systems engineering/admin group is recruiting officers to help administer the myriad of systems that we use every day. If you would be interested in that sort of thing, send me an email at [email protected]!

I realize that those of you who would read this post in English are probably all exchange students, and have not gotten a lot of info as to what Ior actually does. It's a committee/club that is dedicated to bulding, maintaining and migrating systems that the chapter relies on for various purposes, such as user login, bookkeeping, publishing news, holding elections etc. almost every day. This, like everything else in the chapter, is done pro bono, and the main goal is to have fun and learn together, because KTH does not really teach us much about how to actually build, deploy and maintain live systems.

The chapter "compensates" members by providing access to systems that cost money otherwise, such as an enterprise Github organization as well as a fully paid for AWS account that we can utilize and play around with.

The Google Form that is attached to this post is in Swedish, so I don't know how well that would work for you, so ignore that and just contact me directly in case you are interested in knowing more or taking part! My email is once again [email protected]

Link to application form The form closes 23:59 on December 2.
