Hey CSC programs!
A quick update on some stuff you might be interested in:
One of our member made a cool goose design for a shirt last term, and
last term's CSC did a t-shirt run that was popular and ran out really
quickly. We're doing another run of shirts this term, this time in
maroon! Shirts come in women's and unisex styles. Perfect if you missed
out last time.
The shirt samples are here:
Tell us your shirt style, size, and your name and we'll order you your
very own shirt! $15 cash in the office or $15.75 by PayPal. We can't
ship shirts anywhere, but we'll hold onto it so you or a friend can pick
it up at a later date.
For on-campus members, we took a crack at cleaning out the office and
have some computer hardware that you can plunder in a box outside the
office. Motherboards, CPUs, and cool trinkets. Swing by the office and
feel free to plunder.
We're bringing in an out-of-town speaker by popular request, Jon
"maddog" Hall! He'll be talking and having a discussion group on the
12th and 13th of March (in a couple weeks). Keep an eye on our Facebook
and mailing list for details!
Here is his talk:
-Programming for the Twenty-Second Century-
Many things have changed since the early days of programming, but many
programs are written as if they were for the machines of the 20th
century which had small memories, no cache, single core CPUs, small
address spaces. Even the definition of "performance" has changed. This
talk will investigate some of these issues and hopefully lead people to
Have a rad time, fellow programs!
