Pub Crawl & Servers | T1W7 NewsletterMon 14 Nov
We are investigating some newly discovered servers and going on a pub crawl (not at the same time, I promise)
Pub Crawl and Servers, what an interesting combination...
We've discovered we have two old servers of ours, we didn't know existed. We're going to be investigating on Wednesday, but who knows what we'll find!
If you are in 3rd year and struggling with compiler design, we have a help session on Thursday, and if you are struggling with compiler design, we have a drinking session on Friday! Everyone's welcome on our first Pub Crawl of the year: we'll be exploring Leamington in various states of drunkeness.
We had our programming competition last week, which went great! Thanks to all of you that attended, and well done to teams: Ed Sucks, the Error Opposers and the Abelian Group for being in our top three teams. You can find all the problems and the leaderboard (for the competition period only) on our lovely new progcomp website
that definitely wasn't finished at 3am the night before.
🕖 Mon 14 Nov 7pm - 9pm 📍 Dirty Duck
It feels like ages since we've last been to the Duck (maybe because I didn't go our last time), but we're back. I'm sure everyone is starting to feel coursework season, so come along and have just the right balance (I promise) of advice and relief!
🕑 Wed 16 Nov 2pm - 5pm 📍 Department of Computer Science
Interested in the tech side of the society? Join us as we uncover (together) what 3 of our servers are actually doing. We have newly discovered some servers, and we have some more we haven't used in years. We'll be trying to do ... something ... to them....
🕔 Thu 17 Nov 5pm - 7pm 📍 CS0.06
Need some last minute help with your compiler? We'll be around in the labs to help out! There may even be some free food ...
🕖 Fri 18 Nov 7pm - 11:59pm 📍 Department of Computer Science
No matter your degree or background, Friday Night Gaming is the place for people to get together and have some fun. Starting from 7pm, and (officially) winding down at midnight. Grab your friends, or make some new ones - come on down!
We have a wide variety of consoles and games, a Valve Index VR headset, and powerful PCs with Steam and free games! If you hadn't noticed, we made an Instagram post with some more of the benefits of coming along...
🕡 Fri 18 Nov 6:30pm - 11:59pm 📍 Leamington Spa
We'll be crawling all over Leamington! We'll be starting in TBar at 6pm and make our first stop in Leam at 8pm in The Clarendon. From there on, we'll be loosely following the schedule (on the event's page or Discord)
Anyone want a society Mastodon instance?
The society relies on sponsorship to fund events, infrastructure, and all that free pizza you all love so much, so go check out our three sponsors we have lined up for this academic year:
