Week 8 Newsletter

Hey, brickies!

Happy Halloween! I hope you all are enjoying the nice long weekend. Why can’t every weekend be like this? Week 8 has arrived! These weeks are flying by and before we know it, it’ll be Christmas!

We have a nice combination of events lined up for you this week. We will be going bowling in Leisureplex Blanchardstown on Wednesday 1st of November from 6:30-9pm. The sign-up form is located here. If you are interested, sign up quickly as there is a limited number of slots available and it will be first come first served. Hope to see you all there!

Our Hackerclub this week will be about setting up your development environment, giving you tips on the best software to use for development and how to effectively use aliases to speed up all that typing. Sprint down to LG25 on Wednesday the 1st of November from 3-5pm to find out more, or come for the pizza, up to you :)

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 (THIS FRIDAY).
