Some of our members have been hard at work organizing events for you, and there are now three this very week! There's a git + Python workshop this Thursday, and an out-of-town speaker on Monday and Tuesday. All good things!
Of course, we're having food and coffee at all the events.
You can see the three events on our Facebook page or website, but here's a quick summary for our important members.
1. maddog's talk - Programming in the 22nd Century We're bringing in maddog to talk on Monday, he's the executive director of Linux International and was just in Brazil for another conference. He'll be talking about how programming has changed since C was a hot topic in the 1970s and RAM was measured in kilobytes. For those of you who have been exposed to CS 350, this may be of interest! The event is at 6pm on Monday, in the MC Comfy, and we'll be bringing you food.
2. talk to maddog (and eat food) We're getting maddog to stay for another day, just so that you can hang out with him. He's been in the industry since the 1970s, so he'll have lots of war stories. Want to ask him whether you should choose an Arduino or an RPi for FINE 204 wearable media? Want to find out how to save money by using FOSS? I do, and he'll know. The event is at 6pm on Tuesday, in the MC Comfy, and we'll be bringing you food.
3. Git + Python workshop (2A members, come on out!) And finally, a workshop event hosted by amazing members Charlie and Fatema! For those of you in 2A or lower, this workshop is geared to you. Come with a laptop and a GitHub account and we'll feed you and show you how to use version control in a digestible way. GitHub is a really common tool, Python is also really fun, and we're giving you yummy pastries so it's pretty low risk. The event is at 6:30pm on Thursday, in STC 0020, and we'll be bringing you food.
