Week 11 Newsletter

Hey, brickies!

Welcome to week 11 everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! You better start writing those Santa letters (preferably in Markdown) and get them sent off to the Redbrick Santa before the Christmas Party!

Did someone say Christmas Party? Looks like Mariah Carey has finally defrosted! Redbrick will be having its annual Christmas party featuring our very own Santa in Nubar on Tuesday the 28th of November from 7.30pm. And instead of pizza, presents will be given out!

Hackerclub this week will be all about the world of Cloud Computing. We will be walking you through how to host your website on your own domain, as well as telling you all about the great offers that are available to students. Get your head out of the clouds and come back down to LG25 on Wednesday the 22nd of November from 3-5pm. We will have cloud-flavoured pizza for you!

For our main event this week we will be hosting a Q&A talk with a developer from 2K games! Ever wanted to learn how your favourite games are made? Well, come on down to LG25 on Tuesday the 21st of November from 4-5pm. 2K have also opened their graduate program, if you are interested in applying for it, click this link here.

Redbrick, along with UCD, TUD and more are organising a Computing Societies Ball which will be taking place around mid-February 2024 (Date coming soon™) Tickets will be around €60 with more information coming in the following weeks.
