Week 7 Newsletter

Hey, brickies!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Welcome to the 7th week of the semester! While the rest of the college is sleeping and relaxing during reading week, we still have lectures to attend and exams to do. :(

Oh the joys of being in STEM. At least we get it next semester, you know what else happens next semester? FOSDEM!!! Register your interest here.

Does writing code scare you? Want to witness some of the most horrifying code written? You know you want to. Our Hackerclub this week is all about Spooky Code and it’s taking place this Wednesday the 25th of October from 3-5pm in down in the depths of LG25. Join in on the Halloween celebrations and have some spooky pizza too!

Redbrick will be doing its annual pilgrimage to FOSDEM which is an open-source tech conference taking place in Brussels, Belgium on the 3rd and 4th of February 2024. You can register your interest by filling in this Google form here. Deadline for registering your interest is the 3rd of November.

Do you want a Redbrick hoodie? Of course you do. It’s a great way to show off your Redbrick membership and you can have your username on the sleeve. If you are interested, please fill in this Google form here. Deadline for hoodie forms is the 27th of October (THIS FRIDAY).

If you haven’t already, make sure to join our Discord server to interact with fellow brickies and the committee.

Spooky Code


Have you ever seen code like this and been completely traumatised by it? Want to see some janky code created by Redbrick committee members and even large companies? Get in the Halloween spirit and come down to LG25 on Wednesday the 25th of October from 3-5pm to get spooked, along with some pizza!
