Introduction to Python

Friday May 19, 4:00PM - 5:00PM, in K17 Seminar Room

If you've ever wanted an extensible language to create your own projects, websites or write awesome algorithms with, then Python is the language for you!

Python is not only a powerful, general purpose and widely used language, but also one which is both easy to learn, and use!

We're going to cover all the basic Python syntax that you'll need to get you started, plus some other bonuses to guarantee you'll learn something new regardless of your previous experience.

Bring your laptops if you'd like to code along with us, otherwise you can find all slides online after the talk!

Grad School Talk

Tuesday May 9th, 100:PM - 2:00PM, in K17 Seminar Room

Over the past few years, CSE has seen a surge in recruitment from tech companies big and small. Thanks to past students there is a wealth of information available about life as a software engineer. Unfortunately, most students are still unaware of what opportunities are available if they were to chose a career in computer science research.

In this talk I'll be comparing the difference between the life of a PhD student and a software engineer. I'll also cover what kind of research opportunities are available to students at UNSW. Finally, I'll share my experience applying to schools in the US (Berkeley, Stanford, MIT, CMU, UW) and the UK (Cambridge) along with some useful advice to help anyone considering doing the same.
