The Association for Computing Machinery Student Chapter at Colorado State University assists students and promotes advancement in computing.
The CSU Student Chapter of ACM is hosted by the Department of Computer Science. Students pursuing engineering, education, psychology, and other disciplines also benefit from our diverse topics.
Meetings are held every other Monday in the Computer Science Building in Room 130 at 5 p.m.
Who: Max Bauer and Matthew Frahry
What: Computer Assembly
Max Bauer and Matthew Frahry will be bringing in two computers to be assembled.
This will be great experience for those who have never built a computer before,
as we will be discussing the various parts and their specs.
As always, pizza and soda will be provided! Also, next week - game night!
Who: ACM Officers
What: Officer Election/Max assembles a computer
Due to snow days and other scheduling changes, this week's ACM will now be the officer elections (missed from last week) as well as hopefully looking at how to build a computer thanks to one of our members, Max, who has recently ordered parts and intends to put it together with all of us should they all get here in time!
Reminder for officer elections: if you want to run for a position, please plan on attending because all decisions will be made during the course of the meeting. The available positions are: President, Vice President/Secretary, Web Master, and Treasurer. Any other necessary positions are also open for discussion.
We are also open to other suggestions depending on how much time different aspects of the night take, including working further on Windows 8 application development if there is an interest in that.
Pizza & drinks will be provided! See you Wednesday :)
Who: No One
Remember that ACM meeting we were GOING to have at this time? Yeah... Weather said NO.
Who: Shrideep Pallikara
UPE, an ACM honor society, is inducting undergraduates into its fold. Prior to the induction and celebration, Shrideep Pallickara will be giving a presentation regarding the future of computing. Afterwards, food and drinks will be supplied.
Who: Jack Applin
What: Obfuscated C
Jack Applin, Computer Science Instructor and three-time winner of the International Obfuscated C Coding Contest (IOCCC), will discuss how deliberately bad code can make you a better programmer, explain how the IOCCC helped him to understand lawyers, and demonstrate his obfuscated code.
Something happened, we don't know what.
What: Spring Break
Enjoy it :)
Who: Jonathon Todd
What: Logins and Stuff
Ever wanted to create a login environemnt for your site on the CS servers? Jonathon will be going over how to combine PHP, Databases, and Cookies to create and manage login sessions so you can control who gets to see what on your site.
There will also be mention of hashes and salts in the discussion. So come to ACM and secure your site from the outside.
Who: Loopster/Jimmy Cox
What: iOS App/Health Care Software
Next week's ACM, we will have two speakers:
- Loopster is a free online video editor about to release their iPhone/iPad app. They will be coming to share their technology with us and give a technical talk about their new development.
- Jimmy Cox will be coming to talk about the work behind developing healthcare software in his technical talk.
Who: Owen Armstrong
This week's ACM, we will have a talk from Owen, ACM President: "What's a dynamic DNS and how can it help me? Come to ACM next week and learn how to connect to your home network remotely. Stick around and learn how to set up a source game server on your own machine."
Who: ACM Officers
App Development and Ideas and Stuff
The ACM Officers would like to thank everyone who attended Jerry Nixon's talk last week! We had a great turnout. Thank you all for being patient despite some setbacks and we hope that it was a good learning experience for those of you who were able to stay for at least most of the time! For people who left before it was over, Jerry started talking about some really awesome app development that you can do in Visual Studio, so this week's ACM will be focused on that!
There will be no formal speaker this week, so please come and take the opportunity to work on developing any app ideas you have with the support of other ACM members. Thad will have some ideas prepared for people who want to try their hand at programming an app, but don't have an idea for one yet. We encourage anyone to come so that we can all help each other!
Bring your laptops and power cords and be ready to work! :) As always, pizza and soda will be provided.
We hope to see you there!
