Hello {{ name }}:
Welcome to the Computer Science Club! We are pleased that you have chosen to join us. We welcome you to come out to our events, or just hang out in our office (MC 3036/3037). You have been automatically subscribed to our mailing list, csc-general, which we use to keep you informed of upcoming events.
Typical events include:
* Talks: these mostly technical talks are given by members, faculty and distinguished guests. Past topics include randomized algorithms, video encoding, computer security and adaptable user interfaces. People of all skill levels are welcome, and snacks are often served after talks.
* Code parties: late-night hackathons perfect for contributing to open source, working on personal projects, or making progress on a CS assignment you've been putting off. Refreshments provided, and both music and geek classic movies have been played in the past.
* Unix tutorials: whether you need to use the Unix environment for a course, or are just curious about how to use a command-line shell, the Computer Science Club holds a series of tutorials which help get you up to speed so you'll be using vi like a pro in no time at all.
You can hear about upcoming events in a number of ways:
* Check our website from time to time:
* Subscribe to our events calendar feed:
* Like the CSC on Facebook:
* Join the CSC Discord server:
* Read your email: announcements are sent via the csc-general mailing list
* Keep an eye out in the MC: posters for upcoming events appear in stairwells and hallways
Even when events aren't being held, you are welcome to hang out in the club office (MC 3036/3037, across the hall from MathSoc). It's often open late into the evening, and sells pop and snacks at reasonable prices. If you're so inclined, you are also welcome in our IRC channel, #csc on
