This Thursday, November 20th, for the first time in over a year, Alex is doing This Week in Slashdot. Prior knowledge of Slashdot or familiarity with current events are not required. Random discussion is encouraged. Meeting location is Dreese Labs room 266.
This Thursday we will be having a guest speaker come in and teach us about interface design. The speaker will be Matthew Stanford, who is currently working on his masters degree over in the design department.
You may think that design isn't important, but I have learned from experience that your really awesome code will go unnoticed if you don't have a nice interface to go with it.
I urge you to come if you can because this is a very important presentation that will help everyone make their work more presentable.
This Thursday we will be taking a look at the Nintendo Wii remote (or Wiimote) and giving a brief overview of how it works. After that we will look at some of the Wiimote hacks that have been done by other people and hopefully come up with an idea for a new hack that we can start working on as a club project.
This Thursday's meeting (October 16th in Dreese Labs, room 266) will include a presentation on source control management. The main tool that will be used is Mercurial, however most of what is shown can be applied to many of the other source control management tools.
The Open Source Club is going together to the Ohio Linuxfest this year on Saturday, October 11th. The first presentation is at 9:30 am. Rather than drive/taxi, bring your Buck-IDtm and you can ride COTA for free...
We have scheduled a meeting for Thursday, September 25th at 7:00 pm in Dreese Labs room 266. There is no official meeting topic as we will spend the time doing introductions (trying to be sociable or something to that extent). Meetings are open to everyone as always, so please stop by.
