Congratulations to the Swansea Met CS Computer Society for being Awarded the Best New Society at the SU Awards. Jen Ada pictured above (right) receiving the Award for the Computer Society provided an overview of the Societies successful year:
“This year has been a successful first year for the computer society. The SOAC staff have really participated and got involved with students. We started off the year building a Beowulf Cluster with Tim Bashford and Glenn Jenkins, and Nik Whitehead organised a robotics tournament. We also took a trip down to Swansea University to see Bjarne Stroustrop with Glenn. We attended hacker workshops and flash-talks with SUCS. Volunteered with open days and workshops. We’ve built robots, thrown parties, seen hackers and parents of languages, soldered things, burnt things and broken things, Kept It Simple Free and Open Source. But best of all, we’ve found a great group of friends who don’t suffer from buffer overflows.”
The Team at the School of Applied Computing S@AC would like to thank all members of the Computer Society for their help support and significant contribution this year for making the School a great place to enjoy Higher Education.
The Swansea Met SU Awards event focused on celebrating and thanking all staff and students who have gone above and beyond to develop student life at Swansea Metropolitan.
