Due to the adverse weather conditions and their affect on public transport, we are cancelling tonight’s Social Night as of 1400 05/12/13. We apologise if anyone is caught out by this, and wish everyone safe journeys home.
This Thurs we present with Glasgow Caledonian Computer Soc and Scottish Institute for Enterprise an evening of Tech Talks from recently graduated students in the workplace, some who’ve started their own companies.
This is a really good chance to network, to meet students from other universities, and to ask questions of the speakers. SIE will also be on hand to answer questions.

An extra wee tutorial evening for you this week: how to build your own server!
Another week is upon us!
First off I’d like to say a big congratulations to the GeekSoc team who took part in the GUTS hackathon over the weekend and won two prizes!! Hopefully we’ll hear more from them on the website and at meetings on what they produced during a marathon 50hr weekend.
This weeks meeting will be a mash up of things. I’d like to show you all the film which is the background research and inspiration for the hackathon we’re eagerly organising for the 29th/30th November. We’ll also have some ‘intense gaming’ which will involve games such as Unreal Tournament (99 or 2004 depending on what versions people have to pass around), Team Fortress 2, some League of Legends… and of course lets not forget about Minecraft! We may also have time for a quick tour of the server room which we haven’t managed to do a decent scale yet.
Although meeting starts at 6pm, it takes time to get everything set up for the gaming so if people could turn up ready to help move stuff around just before/at 6pm that would be awesome!
Finally, next week on the 16th Nov Rookie Oven are hosting a tech startup talent evening where start up and small tech companies in Glasgow will showcase their wares to the wider audience in the hopes of attracting interns and grads to their companies to keep Glasgow talent in Glasgow! More info and the eventbrite can be found here.
Just a reminder: for the gaming portion of the night it’s really a bring your own event but there can also be plenty of fun to be had watching some poor soul being blown up
Good morning, good afternoon and good evening,
I hope you’re all busy getting stuck into university now we’re almost halfway through the semester (wow, time flies).
There’s plenty going on this week which I hope many of you will be interested in!
First off on Wednesday there is the Royal Phil talk from Alan Little titled ‘Reporting Europe in an Age of Fear’. More information on this weeks and future talks can be found in the Calendar.
On Thursday we have ScotLUG (Scottish Linux User Groups). They meet the last Thursday of every month and is a gathering of people generally interested in Linux based systems and the evolution of them over time. Anyone is welcome and I believe this week the content of the meeting is a mini install event following the release of Ubunutu 13.10. More information can be found in the Calendar (location etc.).
Finally on Friday (1st Nov) this week we have a joint social with SURG (Strathclyde University Roleplaying Game Society), Anime Soc, Pokemon Soc, Kendo Sports Club and possibly another society I’ve forgotten to name! Either way it promises to be a varied night! Tickets are just £7 for members (£10 for non members) and this gives you as much free alcohol as you would like (within reason of course, drink safely and responsibly). Doors open at 6pm. This is a Halloween Party so there will be a Costume Competition with prizes. If you’d like to buy tickets just drop me an email or a message on IRC/Facebook and I’ll get back to you! I’ve got 15 up for grabs at the moment so hop to it!
As was mentioned via previous email, Will has managed to secure a last minute team slot for GeekSoc at Glasgow University TechSocs Hackathon this weekend, starting Friday 1st Nov evening. Entry is £5 and you need to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight tonight (Sunday).

Don’t worry if you can’t make this though as more inter-university activities are hopefully in the pipeline! Watch this space!
