We will also provide Pizza from Bruno's and Wings over Amherst along with plenty of snacks and beverages.
The UMass ACM Movie Night:
The UMass ACM will be hosting A Movie Night! We will be watching Office Space, a classic movie depicting the day and the life of a "normal" software engineer.
We will also be providing Bueno Y Sano's burritos and other refreshments. Of course, since this is movie night, we will also be serving popcorn.
The UMass ACM Student Tech-Talk:
The UMass ACM will be hosting a student tech-talk with guest speaker Nick Tkachov. He will be walking through the resources needed to begin developing applications for Android. In addition, he will be doing a brief demo showing how a simple application is made. After the presentation, he will be open to answering any remaining questions. We will also be serving Wings and other refreshments as well. Please join us for this informative session!
UMass ACM Gaming Night: Join us for a fun-filled evening of assorted Wii U games and a LAN Halo 2 tournament. We also be serving Wings over Amherst and beverages. See you there!
UMass ACM Jeopardy!: Join us for a evening of Jeopardy! with your host Alex Trebek (Brian Nolin - ACM Chair). The questions will be tailored to interesting categories including: UMass CS Professors, Guess that Language, and much more. As always food and beverages will be served.
5th Annual Programming Competition Sponsored by Cisco:
Participants competed to solve programming challenges in the language of his/her choice
for fun and profit (not to mention fame and prizes). This year we gave out
the best prizes yet! - An Acer X1161P 3D-DLP Projector, a 16 GB Google Nexus 7 Tablet, and a
KingstonHyperX 3K 120 GB SSD.
Five college students were invited. Just like previous years the competition was a great time, and
it was good practice for the official ACM
international collegiate programming contest.
6th Annual Foosball Tournament Sponsored by Yahoo!:
