The club is set to start with its first session in week 3 (01.10.18)
This completely voluntary, no credits club is for undergraduate students to get more practical programming experience. It is held once a week during term time. For a couple of hours in a relaxed lab students have the chance to work on different challenges, play with some cool toys and engage with fun programming projects.
Here are a couple of programming projects you might enjoy. We aim to add more as we go. Feel free to suggest one yourself if you have a good idea!
We run competitive programming sessions where you can practice your coding skills on problems of varying difficulty. This is not only fun but most helpful for job interviews which all of you will face eventually when applying for a job in industry or academia that involves programming. We aim to publish the latest programming problems here.
We are also sending teams to the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) and host our own competitions.
The School of Informatics generously bought us a whole bunch of fun toys to play with. All of them are programmable in various languages and difficulty ranging from Scratch over Python to C and assembler. Here is a noncomprehensive list to give you a taster.
The internet is full of resources to satisfy your programming needs on every level. Here are some useful links.
If you have any other links you think are missing here, please let us know!
Join us on Slack with your UoE email address.

A special thanks to Garry Ellard for his massive help and support with running the club!
