posted by Brendan Chan on May 23, 2017, 6:34 p.m.

Hey Everyone,

Thank you for all your survey responses. Hacktime will be having two sessions next week.

Tuesday, May 30th, TASC 9204e 4:30pm - 7:00pm

Friday, June 2nd, TASC 9204e 3:00pm - 6:00pm

The Tuesday session will be similar to what Hacktime has been in the past. If you have any requests for topics you want covered you can email me and I will prepare a short presentation. Otherwise this will be a time for you to meet other students and organize yourselves to do projects.

The Friday session will be a workshop style environment. We will have a lesson prepared and a theme for everyone to explore and work on.

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

[CSSS] May 29th Information Session with Guest Speaker Ian Reddy

Hello everyone,

A SFU alumni, Ian Reddy, will be on campus on May 29th to host an information session for our students. Ian Reddy is an accomplished business leader with deep experience in technology, culture, and organization. Ian boasts a wealth of knowledge, and is currently the head of IT Service Management at Paypal.

This information session will be an interactive experience, rather than the boring old lectures you’re used to. Ian has recommended students to read the books “Outliers” and “The Tipping Point”, both by Malcom Gladwell, to better prepare you for your future, as well as the information session. This info session will also serve as a preview of what to come for students coming to our CSSS Silicon Valley Trip. If you aren’t able to make the trip, I highly suggest you to attend this info session instead!

The event details is as follows:
Room: TASC 9204
Time: 10:00AM - 12:00PM
Date: May 29th, 2017

I hope to see all of you at the information session!

Henry Zhao
Director of Communications | CSSS
