Week review

On Monday we had the Introduction Camp Afterparty! There was a lot of free beer and shots available, which everybody really enjoyed. After the party ended, a lot of us went to the karaoke bar and sang some songs.

On Wednesday there was the Pool Night which was really well attended. People of a lot of different skills levels could find people to play with, which was really cool.

On Thursday we had our constitutional drinks, which was only open to other boards and former Cover boards. I hope everybody had a good time here, we really enjoyed it and want to thank everybody for taking care of us at the end!

SNiC: DisruptIT

Wednesday 15th of November, 11:00 till 20:00

DisruptIT is the 11th conference organised by the Stichting Nationaal Informatica Congres, this year study association Cover provides the committee that will organise it and it will be held on the 15th of November.

This year’s theme is Disruptive Technology. Disruptive Technology is technology that displaces an established technology. This will shake up the current industry or is so ground breaking that it creates its own industry. This topic is focussing on current and future technologies that will change the work field of current students. It is hard for students to predict the future of a rapidly changing market. We want to give the students a mind-changing insight into the future.
