The Top 6 Events happening in Week 9 | T1W9 NewsletterMon 28 Nov
The Top 10 Events happening in Week 9, you won't believe Number 7!
But seriously, Lightning Talks and CTFs are pretty cool!
I know everyone gets busy around this time of term, but we've accidentally got you a busy week! We have our 2nd batch of Lighting Talks on some fun topics, and the CTF just before it from one of our lovely sponsors: Nettitude. What a busy Wednesday!
On the 1st of December (terrifyingly close, I know), Advent of Code starts! It's one of our favourite programming challenges of the year.
🕔 Mon 28 Nov 5pm - 7pm 📍 B2.01
In collaboration with ChemSoc, we're going to help Chemistry students out with some Python!
🕖 Mon 28 Nov 7pm - 9pm 📍 Dirty Duck
Celebrate the start of the second last week with a meal and some chat!
🕜 Wed 30 Nov 1:30pm - 5pm 📍 IMC2.46
There'll be an "Intro to Pentesting" talk by Nettitude, followed by the CTF. The CTF will be 2-4 hours, and has Amazon vouchers and Red Team Field Manuals as prizes!
A Kali Linux VM or similar is recommended, and only Cyber students have access to IMC, so ping Exec on Discord if you need to get in.
🕔 Wed 30 Nov 5pm - 6:30pm 📍 MB0.07
Three short student talks covering a variety of topics!
- Type Level Arithmetic in Haskell - Felix B
- Mechanistic Interpretability of Neural Networks - Avi S
- Formal Concept Analysis - Josh F
Note: this was moved later to avoid the CTF, we are aiming to start when the CTF ends, but we will see how that aligns.
🕙 Thu 1 Dec 10am - 11pm 📍 Online
An advent calendar of Coding Challenges! They'll start easy and get harder, see how far you get. Use this as an opportunity to sharpen your programming skills, or maybe learn a new language....
Every year, we have good fun with this across the society, just don't try to do the whole thing in SQL.
🕖 Fri 2 Dec 7pm - 11:59pm 📍 Department of Computer Science
Join us Friday for a night of fun! With a ton of games and consoles, plus our VR setup.
I hope we are all enjoying coursework season, and I hope none of you have put up your Christmas decorations yet 👀
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:
