G-Research Coding Competition, and AGM & Elections this Friday!

This Friday we have our AGM & Elections! We will review the past year, and elect my replacement! (and the rest of the new exec of course). We will be voting using STV ranked choice voting, and doing it online: so if you can't attend, you can vote in the following 7 days. If you want to stand for a position, you can nominate yourself right up to the AGM itself.

This week we also have G-Research coming in and doing a programming challenge based on optimizing processor task assignment. Sign up at https://bit.ly/warwick23, and I believe we'll have some pizza!

Last weekend, we ran WASD: our speedrunning marathon! It went great, and we raised £1345.36 for SpecialEffect, bringing the total over all WASDs to over £9000! VODs are now available on Youtube. Massive thanks to all our runners, donators, commentators, and tech team!
