Now that we have our exec, here's some news about the first event:
Our first event of the term is happening next weekend, on the *23rd*. We have Jane Street coming in to run their financial trader bot contest.
*Sign up* https://docs.google.com/a/janestreet.com/forms/d/1I7UukJDH9ZAVWpLl-2vwmvPWzbWBFjj8g973hidn8eE/viewform on this page: http://eth1-waterloo.janestreet.com/ Sign up by *Monday* January 18th, since there is limited space in the room.
Absolutely no special math, OCaml, or finance knowledge is required; you can use any language you like. The contest is entirely technical in nature and you won't need any visual design skills.
The exact details of the hackathon aren't released until the competition begins. The one thing you can do ahead of time to prepare is familiarize yourself with the libraries for writing TCP clients in your programming language of choice.
So I'm guessing y'all should read Racket Reference: TCP https://docs.racket-lang.org/reference/tcp.html.
