Tomorrow (Wednesday July 4th) at 6:00pm the CSC will be hosting Alt-Tab, a series of short talks from CSC members, in MC 4058. Currently planned talks include:
- Abstract Machines, what a PL person thinks a computer looks like! - Rendering with Signed Distance Fields - Strength, weaknesses, and applications of genetic algorithms
Come listen to what fellow CSC members are interested in, and enjoy some free food.
There are also two more exciting events coming up this month.
Next Wednesday, July 11th, there will be a Capture the Flag competition hosted by the CTF Club in collaboration with the CACR and the CSC. It's a fun way to test your programming, web, networking and trivia skills in the context of computer security. No prior experience is required, it will be a fun event (I really enjoyed the last one of these I did). The event will start at 6pm in STC 0010, food will be provided, bring your laptops. For more information, see ctf.uwaterloo.ca.
On Saturday July 14th, TerribleHack returns for its 10th iteration. Unlike most hackathons that are focused on innovative and practical ideas, TerribleHack is solely about programming for the sake of programming and having fun - even if that means reinventing less efficient wheels. TerribleHack will run from 9am to 7pm in M3 1006. For more information, see terriblehack.website.
