Week 9: Program Management - Thursday, November 21st from 4:30-5:20 in ARC 147
Speaker: Britt Henderson
What is project management and how is it useful? What can project management look like in extra-curricular? And what can project management look like in industry?

Week 8: Programming Languages - Thursday, November 14th from 4:30-5:20 in ARC 147
Speaker: Omar Ibrahim
We have been learning Java, but there are so many other programming languages out there! What makes these languages different? Why use one over the other? And how far can programming languages push the limits of computing? Join us tomorrow for an exploration of several different programming languages and what makes them special.
Week 7: Web Programming - Thursday, November 7 from 4:30-5:20 in ARC 147
Speaker: Lauren Bricker
What is a web page really? How does a page get from some nebulous "cloud" computer on the internet to your machine? What does it mean to "style" a page and why would we want to anyway? Come learn the basics of how to start a web page with Style and how to publish a page on the UW student server. Note: This exploration session will expect you to actively engage and participate.
Week 4: CS Experience Student Q/A Panel - Thursday October 17th from 4:30-5:30 in ARC 147
Speakers: Various CSE Students
We will have a panel of students (former/current TAs, researchers, CS majors, etc.) who will speak on their experience with Computer Science. We will hear about what they have done here at UW, research they have gotten involved in, internships they have done and more. Not long ago these students were taking the introductory programming series themselves. This is a great opportunity to ask some questions you may have or to seek some advice!
Week 3: What is a Computer? - Thursday, October 10th from 4:30-5:20 in ARC 147
Speaker: Omar Ibrahim
Computers have invaded every corner of our lives -- you probably have a personal computer, and you almost certainly have a smartphone in your pocket. But have you ever stopped to think about what a computer actually is? What differentiates a computer from other types of machines? We'll talk about the formal definition of a computer, and why computer scientists are interested in these questions.
