On the 3rd floor of Anderson Tower lives a unique group of people. We are the Computer Interest Floor, a special interest housing group at the University of Rochester whose interests and activities are as diverse and numerous as our members. With a history going back to 1983, we’re just as involved and dedicated to the university community as when we provided some of the few computing resources on campus.

CIF Presents Virtual Seminar (9/5): How to Succeed in CS in College

Posted on August 30th, 2020

Posted by cifmaster

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
