Hello fellow members,
Do you want to write some code for outside class? Ever wanted to participate in the open source software movement? Maybe you've got some bug in a program that you want to fix, but you're not sure where to get started.
Sometime soon, the CSC will be having one of our famous code parties. Join us in the MC comfy for a night of writing code, playing games, eating snacks, and solving puzzles. If you've never been to one before, you should come out. And if you have, then come again! Details will be announced soon, but first, we need you to help us organize the event.
During the code party, there's going to be plenty of code writing on lots of projects. If there's an open source project, or one of your own, that you know you'll be working on and you'd like others to work with you, let me know now so we can get some stuff prepared ahead of time. Ideally we'll have a couple projects with a bunch of people working together on, and we'd like to get some support for those projects ahead of time.
If there's anything else you want to do, let me know too. There's lots of other things you can do besides write code at our parties too. You could test software, edit Wikipedia, debate technology topics, watch movies, play games, or just chat with all the other members.
Tell me what you're interested in, and we'll make it happen!
More details with things like the date will follow soon.
See you there,
Matthew McPherrin University of Waterloo Computer Science Club
