The exec has organized three events to wrap up the term:
1. *Code Party 1 / SE Hack Day #13*
[Nov.21 (TOMORROW), 18:00, M3 1006]
Why sleep when you could be hacking on $SIDE_PROJECT, or working on
$THE_NEXT_BIG_THING with some cool people?
Come when you want, hack on something cool, demo before you leave.
If you don't have a project, don't worry - we have a list of ideas, and
people will be looking for a helping hand on their projects.
*NOTE*: Due to the high interest, dinner and snacks will only be served to
those working on projects/demoing during the event.
2. *TALK: C++ ABI (Sean Hunt)*
[Nov.25 (Tuesday), 17:30, MC 4041]
Our own sysadmin, Sean Hunt, will be giving a talk on the C++ compiler ABI,
and how all of the magic in C++ is implemented at the binary level.
3. *TALK: Heroic Android HTTP (Jesse Wilson)*
[Nov.27 (Thursday), 18:00, MC 4020]
The network is unreliable. 3G networking is slow. Using WiFi drains your
battery. The NSA is spying on you. Different versions of HttpURLConnection
have different bugs.
Jesse Wilson, a software developer at Square, will be talking about OkHttp,
a library that he maintains, and how to use it to make your app's
networking work even when conditions aren't ideal.
He will talk about how to configure caching to improve behavior and save
resources, cryptography, and he will give advice on which libraries to use
to make good networking easy.
*NOTE*: You *must* RSVP via this website

We need to have an accurate count for food. :)
That's all, folks! Thanks for coming out to our events, and hope to see you
