The second Code Party of the term takes place this Friday!
Come hack on some code, solve some puzzles, and have some fun. The
event starts in the evening and will run all night. You can show up
for any portion of it.
You should bring a laptop, and probably have something in mind to work
on, though you're welcome with neither. If you're looking for
something to do, there's always lots of projects that could use a
hand, and somebody willing to guide you along.
Snacks and drinks will be provided.
Hello CSC members,
Due to a number of circumstances, CSC won't be holding an official
code party this weekend as had been previously announced. Of course,
there's nothing to stop anybody from showing up at the comfy lounge
and writing code, but we won't be providing the usual snacks,
projectors, speakers, and other amenities.
As you may have noticed, convocation for CS majors is tomorrow, and
the usual organizers wish to celebrate our classmate's achievements in
ways not permitted in the Comfy. If you'd like to join us, we'll be
at Kickoff in the plaza.
Computer Science Club Vice President.
Ever use software with 100s or 1000s of commands? Ever have a hard
time finding the right commands to perform your task? We have. And we
have some new ideas on how to deal with software bloat.
In this talk, we'll present AdaptableGIMP, a new version of GIMP
developed by the HCI Lab here at the University of Watreloo.
AdaptableGIMP introduces the notion of crowdsourced interface
customizations: Any user of the application can customize the
interface for performing a particular task, with that customization
instantly shared with all other users through a wiki at
adaptablegimp.org. In the talk, we'll demo this new version of GIMP
and show how it can help people work faster by simplifying
feature-rich, complex user interfaces.
Held in MC 2054, on 2011-06-14, at 4:30 PM.

On another note: The FEDS Student Development Network is having an
introduction to Ruby on Rails Wednesday. See

Hello CSC Members,
In the first of our member talks for the term, Katie Hyatt will give a
short introduction to General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit
computing. This expanding field has many applications. The primary
focus of this talk will be nVidia's CUDA architecture. It includes
information on the programming environment, notable algorithms that
GPUs are useful for, and some applications to physics.
For more information, see
I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow. Refreshments will be provided.
