CIF Presents Virtual Seminar (9/5): How to Succeed in CS in College
So usually this time of year we do a Unix seminar, it’s always the same boring commands, which probably should have Googled (or DuckDuckGo’ed) already, that we reiterate and try to make people think it’s the next best thing since sliced bread. So this year, we decided to change it up a bit. We have too many topics, too little time. So what are we doing now?
We’re gonna provide the entry point for all these skills so you can choose the interesting ones to search for yourself!
This upcoming Saturday (9/5) at 2pm. We will be doing a talk on “How to Succeed in CS in College”. Covering a wide range of topics of what you are expected to know learning Computer Science in college, like Git, Bash, Linux/Unix, Breakpoint debugging, and more! We will cover just enough so that people can have a solid idea of what keywords to search for. So drop by and see what skills that you may need to brush up on!
Time: Sat, 9/5 2pm-3pm

Thank you CIRC!
The Center for Integrated Research Computing (CIRC) has just donated three Dell servers. These servers not only allow us to replace our old dying VM server, but also provided us with the resources to better support our remote members in these times.
Some of you may remember that Spring 2020, we were looking for a new HBA controller for setting up our new lab infrastructure. It was CIRC that provided us with the controller. Both these times, it was Carl Schmidtmann who took time out of his busy schedule to make sure that we can get the hardware that we needed. Without his help, none of the recent changes in the lab could have happened.
So thank you, Carl and CIRC, for continuously supporting us throughout the year, especially in these difficult times. Your generous contributions to the CIF lab will be utilized to provide better service to not only our members, but the entire campus community.
