Hello everyone, my name is Kai and I am running for the position for president for the remainder of year. I would like to share with you some insights of where I think the future of this organization could be going.
In my mind, computer science is frontier of human achievement. We are trained not only to excel in math and logic, but also to build things that takes us to a new age. We don't just aspire to creating a good life for ourselves, but also for the future. I am certain I am not only one that feels this way in the common room.
So what do we have to do? Well, good partitioning of value adding events is important. For example, hack time events could be partitioned in such a way that is more targeted towards students that want to learn particular skill sets. I specialize in iOS development in swift, but I am also interested computer vision and machine learning. How would I be able to teach iOS while learn Neural networks at same time? Surely there must be a way for me to learn from workshop like events; Surely there must be a way for us to work with the best programmers; Surely there must be a way for us to develop more than just what classrooms can teach us.
In my mind, hack time should be segmented into sections, each with its own targets goals. For example, a full stack web development section can quickly level up students in need for coop jobs. A prototype development section in can quickly train up students for kaggle competitions. An ACM competitive section can prepare students to handle technical interviews or algorithms for their projects.
I apologize if I come across too serious and grand deious, but I am older now and I feel the time has come for me to accomplish great things and contribute to the world. I feel that this is the best environment for both me and you to be in. I want to make more friends, and together we build something great for the future generations to come.
