Hey everyone,

Our next social event this term is Board Game Night! Join us on Discord for some virtual board and/or card games! We also have a tech talk from Cisco this Wednesday titled “Have Your Robots Call My Robots”, see below for more details. Learn to Code also continues this week on Thursday, whether you’re keen to learn programming or have experience and want to help others learn, it’s a great opportunity! We’ve also got messages from the Oxford University Careers Service and Cisco this week, see below to check them out.

In week 7 this term, we’ll be having our AGM. Most importantly, this includes elections for the 2021-2022 committee. It’s a great opportunity and well worth your consideration if you’re interested in running for a position. More info to come, so stay tuned!

If you aren’t already on the CompSoc Discord, you can join it here to take part in social events and keep in touch with other members.

Cisco Tech Talk - Have Your Robots Call My Robots

19:00, Wednesday, Week 3

Creating a better, cheaper Internet for all depends on network operations moving away from humans to software automatons.

This raises technical challenges, where techniques originating in automated theorem proving are highly practical.

This is an accessible talk, that won’t assume deep knowledge of either networking or formal methods.

Learn To Code

19:00, Thursday, Week 3, Zoom

Learn to code! If you want to learn how to write code or refresh your knowledge, this course will teach introductory programming in the Python language with no prior experience necessary. Programming is a useful skill in a range of subjects and having some knowledge of it is a great way to improve your CV. Alternatively, if you’re already a CS student and would like to volunteer to help teach others some introductory Python, please contact the committee (replying to this email is fine) and we’ll get you connected!
