HICAPACITY

Trevor Alexander, HICapacity member and UH student liaison, will be giving an informal technical talk about rBCI, a tool for quickly validating brain-computer interfaces. The first half of the talk will be concerned with the background, purpose, and implications of hackerspaces and BCI, while the second half of the talk will focus on the code, design, and implementation of rBCI.

Bring your brain, your computer, and let’s interface!

OUDL is having a Swift discussion. Bring your laptops and follow along and be sure to participate in the discussion!

From the Meetup event:

Warning: May include functional programming and excessive Playgrounds.

A little bit of time has gone by since our last Swift meetup. It’s time to regroup and have a discussion on Swift.

The agenda is simple:

  • Discuss interesting Swift language features, guided by suggestions or led by my Playgrounds
  • Go over the GitHub project that I’ve put together to guide the PNM workshop in March (beta testing!)

Our focus will be on guided discussion and writing a lot of code together.

James Wang will be giving a talk on Go this coming Thursday!

Go is an exciting programming language that is aimed to replace C in many ways. From groundbreaking benchmarks to Erlang-like concurrency focused language constructs make it one of the go to languages for code that demand performance.

From Go’s Documentation:

The Go programming language is an open source project to make programmers more productive.

Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It’s a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.

The agenda for this talk is as follows:

  • Environment Setup
  • Getting Started: Simple Programs and Algorithms
  • Concurrency & Design Patterns
  • Tools and Projects written in Go
