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.

*Note that this event is sold out and you can only be placed on a waiting list

Long term plan

One of the points from our policy plan is (re-)instating the long term plan. For this we have checked what previous boards did about this and collected that information as far as it was still relevant. However we would love to get the input from our members and see what they think is important for Cover to be focusing on the coming 5 years. So if you have an idea or something you think is important to put in the long term plan please email me on!
