Hello everyone and welcome back for the winter semester! I hope everyone had a good break and is having good semester. We’re all back up and running here at CSUS! I hope that we see everyone around the room and throughout the semester!
We have a bunch of events running this semester that are excited to bring to you over the next few months
Calgary Hacks 2020
Feb 15-16 2020
The annual Calgary Hacks Hackathon is happening in the beginning of reading break! Want to win $1,200? Ipads? Game keys? Fed 3 meals? Come on over and participate. You get 24-hours to work in a team to create a project that is based on a topic, given a day before the competition. You will then be judged by professionals from the industry. This is a good way to get connections to the industry and to bolster your resume for internships! From our sponsor White Whale Analytics: “7 of our employees came out of CalgaryHacks”
