Everyone is sick, but at least there's Saint Nic

Gooooood evening everybody,

I hope you had a fantastic week! I definitely did. SNiC was simply a blast, as per usual. Whether you got to have a look into the dark net, learned about the creative problem solving in the game industry or had a good dance to the live coding demo, it was a day full of interesting experiences. The Machine Learning Fortnight also came to a glorious end and I'm sure you are already looking forward to next year! On Thursday we had an intruder in the Cover Room. The security camera footage has been shared in the Online Cover Room, but it seems he may have left things, rather than steal them.

Sint and Piet, with joy they descend,

On Monday, in Cover, a day to attend.

Games and laughter, gifts to share,

Tomorrow's magic fills the air.

If you didn't manage to talk to during the SNiC, or you were not able to go, on Wednesday you will have another change. They are hosting an engaging lecture on how they handle bugs and outages in a large scale business. This lecture will specifically uncover the strategies employs to turn setbacks into stepping stones, right at the heart of the tech world.

This Friday, it is Purple Friday. This is a day on which pupils and students can show their solidarity with LGBTIQ+ people by wearing the colour purple at school (I guess I am already one step ahead). In the Netherlands, the day has been held on the second Friday of December every year since 2010. In honour of this we will celebrate freedom & show our solidarity with a couple of drinks during this week's TAD!

And don't forget, next week Monday on the 11th of December we will have a General Assembly, starting at 18:00. A General Assembly is a meeting to which every member (and only those) is invited to discuss the future and current state of the association. All major decisions are made at General Assemblies, so, needless to say, it is important that as many members as possible are present.

Auf Wiedersehen, Jellybean!
