Code@Night and Froyo Chats!

Two things:

First, we’re bucking the trend of coffee chats and instituting FROYO CHATS. Big moves, right? Come and discuss Fall 2015-2016 course selection with your friends over froyo from Sketch, courtesy of ACM. Fill out this form with your time preferences and we’ll get back to you Friday night with which time slot you’re in. Upperclassmen are definitely encouraged to sign up!

Second, there will be a Code@Night with APT this Friday in Frist 302. The talk is titled “How to scale beyond a startup” and will be about, you guessed it, scaling a company’s technology past the startup stage.

Code@Night with Anna Kornfeld Simpson!

Come hear about COS grad school at this week’s Code@Night!

Anna Kornfeld Simpson ‘14, currently a PhD student studying computer security at University of Washington, will talk about why you might want to go to grad school, how to prepare and apply, and how grad school differs from doing independent work or thesis at Princeton. The talk will have thoughts for all class years, and there will be Q&A afterwards, so bring your questions!

As usual, it will be held in Frist 307 and 309 at 9PM until late.

Code@Night with Open Source at Princeton

We have two great events lined up for you! Join us at Frist 302, 307, and 309 from 9PM to 2AM – there will be pizza and fruit!

9-10 pm: Curious about contributing to open source software? Join Open Source at Princeton to get started contributing to OpenMRS, the world’s leading open-source medical records platform, or Ubuntu, one of the most widely used Linux distributions.

10-11 pm: Scott Draves of Two Sigma will give a talk about Beaker Notebook and help students contribute to it. Beaker is a polyglot web-based IDE allowing you to work in many languages simultaneously. It’s targeted at research, data analysis, and visualization, but it’s open source and you can use it to do almost anything. Program in Python, R, Javascript, Groovy, Julia, Ruby, LaTeX, and HTML – all at the same time and on the same page!

Scott Draves is a member of the Beaker Development Team and a pioneering software artist best known for creating the Electric Sheep distributed computing project. Check out his website for more information.

Princeton ACM Website is Redesigned and Back Up!


After a semester of being down, the Princeton ACM website is now redesigned and back up, courtesy of our awesome webmaster! We will be posting news and upcoming events on this website, in addition to emailing them out to listservs. Stay tuned for the cool stuff that’s going to be happening this semester! :)

Come to the First Code@Night of the Semester!

Time: 9:00 PM
Place: 3rd floor of Frist

What: First Code@Night of the semester! Oscar, a New York City-based health insurance startup that uses data analytics to identify the most efficient doctors in NYC, will be giving a tech talk. We will also be running mock interview practice for those of you that are on the job hunt, and there will be plenty of fruit and pizza!

Anyone interested in technology and computer science is more than welcome to come, regardless of level of experience! RSVP to the Facebook event here!
