NOTE: If you have not already joined the CS Club Facebook Group, it's a great place to be updated on events as well as stay in touch with members.

Join the Slack team CyberspaceCadets (CSC).
"Lets have this slack channel be a place for anyone to set up a time to meet up and program with each other! If you have a project you want to work on, any kind of project, and need advice or want teammates, you can post about that here."

Next Meeting

Come join us for the last general meeting of the semester!

We will look over the submitted TShirt designs (voting begins after the meeting - there will be a link to the form on the Club FB page).

We will also be talking about the major things recruiters and companies are looking for in CS students, as well as brainstorming some ideas for events for next semester and projects our member can do.

We will also like to bring up any concerns about how this semester went so that we may become a better club.

This will be a shorter meeting (30 min) because of the BBQ right afterwards. We still recommend you come and we could always use people's help carrying (or driving) things to the BBQ site.

There be coffee and donuts!

SB Hacks

Registration is open, and it is highly recommended that our members start, or continue, to participate in Hackathons.

SO many recruiters and interviewers will ask you about your Hackathon experience.

It's also an amazing learning opportunity, and a great chance to earn some recognition.

The club will be planning meeting to talk about teams and possible projects, so make sure to join the Slack channel and the FB Event for the event (when we make one).

Next Semester's Officers

Hey guys! This is Michelle, current president of the club. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will not be running for an officer position next semester. I would like to give that opportunity to someone else.

Being president of the club has been such a huge perk for me when looking for interships. I've literally had more than 10 recruiters/interviewers at a convention I went to ask me questions about how I run the club.

I've been told by multiple companies, including Ontraport and Sonos, multiple people in the industry and by Stephen Strenn (past head of the CS Department) that being a club leader really shows initiative, way more effectively than what any interview could show.

I would like to be a mentor for the next officers, if they want of course, by providing my methods and advice, as well as continuing support and help with events.

I encourage everyone to run for a position (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer) at the first meeting of Spring, 2017.

Also, I want to give a shout out to the excellent work of the past officers. I would particularly like to thank Tyler Stoaks for his role as Vice President. He is a very capable guy and it's been an honor working with him.

Bash has also been ported to Microsoft Windows" -from Bash (Unix shell) Wikipedia Page
