Brady is giving a talk on Computer Music. Computer Music has a rich history, dating back to the early days of computing, and has certainly evolved a lot during that time. This talk will focus on the History, and also using Pure Data to make music.
Despite a world full of best-practices, almost all software developers will need to work on a legacy system at some point in a career. In this talk, Kenny will discuss: (1) what are the traits of a legacy system, (2) why they come to exist, and (3) approaches to working on legacy systems. Through all of this, he will use Runescape as the primary example of a legacy system. This talk is very accessible to programmers of all skill levels, and should be a fun exploration of the uglier side of our profession.
This will be an important discussion that requires your participation. Our industry partners need to hear from our students, and this is a great opportunity for an open discussion. We encourage you and other CSE undergraduate students to attend; note that you do not have to stay for the entire meeting. Read on for more details.
