Code@Night this Friday - Come learn JavaScript!

We’ve got the last Code@Night of the year this Friday April 22, 8pm ‘till late at the Butler Innovation Space! Come learn about JavaScript with our very own Richard Chu and Antony Toron! Join us in coding, board games, and eating yummie food, or bring your homework, readings, and personal projects to work on. Not sure what to major in? Come chat with upperclassmen to get some valuable insight. Here’s the description for the JavaScript class:

Come learn the basics of JavaScript by making your own Cookie Clicker game! You’ll be following along by writing JavaScript code and a little bit of HTML, and hopefully end up with a cool game that you can show to your friends. The game will involve implementing buttons, a menu interface, an updating score, images, and more. The topics that we will cover during the class include: HTML tags, variable and function declarations, using JavaScript to manipulate HTML elements, event handlers (such as handling button clicks), and anything else about the basics of JavaScript you may want to learn about.

And don’t forget to RSVP on the Facebook event page!

Code@Night 2.0

Code@Night 2.0

We are restructuring Code@Night to have more of a focus on working on side projects and hanging out with other cool computer science people! If you want to relax, talk with interesting people about CS, and carve out some time to code that side project you’ve always been dying to work on, then please come out to our first Code@Night of the semester, which will be this Friday the 19th on the third floor of Sherrerd Hall starting at 8pm!

Even if you are not currently working on a project, feel free to come by to check out what other people are up to! There will be workshops on how to make your first web app, and now that the FBI is trying to backdoor our phones, how to use secure email and venture into the spooky Deep Web with Tor. There will be good food and great company. RSVP here!


Tis the Season to Code@Night!

Code@Night with Eevo

We have Eevo coming for our Code@Night this Friday in Sherrerd! They’re a New York VR startup that aspires to be the Netflix for VR. How we’ll Eevo and chill with goggles on remains to be seen however.

Nick Sahler will come and talk about how to scale infrastructure for 360 degree film, data streaming, and VR in general. We’ll have a few headsets and my gaming PC to try out VR games as well!

Daniel Suo, GS1 will also be coming to discuss research opportunities in the computer vision group run by Professor Xiao and show off his robot, so if you’re interested in independent work next semester, make sure to come on by!

Donate your old tech swag!

If you’re like me, your tech t-shirts are multiplying like gremlins in your dresser drawers right now. Let’s try and free up some space and give back to the less fortunate by donating your unwanted tech swag to local charities like Habitat for Humanity and Rescue Mission of Trenton. There’s a collection box in the Tea Room on the second floor of the CS building and I’ll be driving donations to the two organizations until class ends.

Coffee Chats

Need help figuring out what classes to take? Want to help underclassmen figure out what classes to take? Want some free coffee? Come to ACM coffee chats! Sign up here and we’ll set up groups to go to Small World or Starbucks to get coffee and discuss the upcoming semester from Tuesday to Thursday.
