Greetings, ACM! Here are our announcements for this week:
-Advising has begun for the spring semester! Don’t wait to set up an advising appointment, because time slots are already filling up fast!
Monday: TigerDev — 6:00 PM in Shelby 3129: Today will be TigerDev’s first project progress update of the semester! Our four teams have been working hard on their semester-long game development projects, and today’s the day they get to show the club what they’ve accomplished thus far! Even if you’re not a regular TigerDev attendee, come check out our teams’ progress if you’re interested!
Wednesday: Ethical Hacking Club — 5:00 PM in Shelby 2117: Hacking club will last from 5PM until our stomachs make us stop in Shelby 2117. We’ll be setting up IoT, Bluetooth, wireless, and network labs that people can try to exploit. It’s an open-ended session, so don’t worry about being late. It’s like a weekly hacking fest, so come have some fun!
Wednesday: Programming Practice — 6:00 PM in Shelby 3129: This week, the Programming Team will be covering an introduction to graphs. Graph theory is important to many problems that pop up in programming competitions and in everyday applications, so come get a solid primer on it!
Thursday: TigerDev Guest Speaker — 6:00 PM in Lowder 129: TigerDev will be hosting Todd Deery, the communication and admission director for UCF’s graduate game development program. He’ll speak about the video game industry in general and about UCF’s graduate program. In addition, he’ll be bringing in a fellow faculty member from UCF to talk about the game industry more in depth. This is an awesome opportunity for anyone interested in game development, so come check it out!
Thursday: Tea Time — 6:00 PM at Little Italy: Tea Time, what a wonderful time! If you don’t plan on coming to TigerDev’s guest speaker event, come grab a bite to eat with your fellow ACMers!
Sunday: Mock Programming Competition — 2:00 PM in Shelby 3129: This week’s mock competition will serve as the first qualifying round for the International Collegiate Programming Contest, which the Programming Team will attend in November.

That’s all for this week!
