If you want to play in the foosball tournament, you can sign up on the bulletin board outside the cube office, OR at the LAN party on friday. There will be a final showdown, one on one between the winning team to see who gets to take home a brand spankin’ new copy of NBA Live ‘06 for Xbox.
For those of you who didn’t attend this extremely popular event last year, In My Experience is basically the straight-dope on Computer Science. Hear from several CS students, in all stages of their degree and what they are doing. If you have that burning question, like, “Should I go into co-op?” (of course!), or “Should I do a double major or honours?” (well, duhhh…), this is the place to get your answers - from peers who’ve had to make those same choices.
What’s the state of CS in general? Hear why those naysayers who claim we’re doomed to be unemployed upon graduation are very wrong. All past participants have agreed that this was extremely helpful so don’t miss out!
And… ahem, where there be speakers, there be giveaways ;-) But even if you don’t get to snag a t-shirt or one of those newfangled cdroms, I guarantee you that you’ll definitely snag something way more valuable - helpful advice that could make a difference in your education or career. It’s what you make of it, and it’s your experience!
On November 2nd, we’re going to try something we’ve never done before.
What happens when we order 600Krispy Kreme donuts and attempt to consume them all in one day. “But that’s not possible!” you exclaim! That’s right, so we’re going to enlist your aid in helping us, if you don’t mind.
For the paltry sum of [amount to be announced once our math whizzes have finished deliberating], you’ll be helping us rid the campus of donuts, the likes of which UBC has never seen before. And also, your generously given coin will help Your Student Society arrange bigger and more lavish things for you.
It would be a shame if the engineers beat you to it. So come out next Wednesday… For great justice!
FSMLabs produces RTLinux, the popular real-time operating system. Dr. Yodaiken is in Vancouver specifically to announce the formal opening of the company’s newly-established Vancouver office.
Modular programming is difficult in a real-time environment efficiency is critical and where interactions that change timing can cause hidden dependencies. RTLinux decouples real-time from non-real-time and provides the programmer some methods of separating programs into simpler components and the first part of this talk will cover the interfacing of real-time and non-real-time modules and connecting real-time software to networked services. The second part will look at modularity within real- time components particularly on limiting the global timing effects of synchronization.
