A Fresh New World - A Collaborative Competition using GitHub
ACM is encouraging all Freshmen and Fresh members of Computer Science, Programming, and Design to participate in a collaborative programming competition online. We will be using a popular open source version control system, GitHub, to help our participants work together in teams of 3-4, exercise proper version control, and allow their imagination to enter reality. We understand that the majority of our participants will have little to no experience with programming and problem solving which is why we are going to use our influence to provide information sessions, resources, and valuable expertise to provide everyone with the knowledge that they need to succeed. If you are interested in exploring your passion for Computer Science further, than we encourage you to email firstname.lastname@example.org so that he can add you to the mailing list. You can about this competition further on A Fresh New World. The information meetings will be Tuesday, Oct. 1st and Thursday, Oct. 3rd at 6p.m. in Rayzor 2045.
The Association for Computing Machinery is a forum to facilitate communications among computer science professionals, and in the case of the student chapter, to provide students interested in computers an idea of the future that awaits them.
