Committees are voluntary groups, formed by members in order to achieve certain goals.
To join this committee, contact the committee chairperson. See Rules and Policies#Committees for more information.

Purpose

Our goal is to help you learn about and create projects with computers. Do you want to learn how to code? Do you already have a working understanding of software and hardware, but you want to expand into new platforms? Do you want to help someone discover that they love creating projects with computers by teaching classes? The Computer Committee wants to help you.

Initiatives

Computer Lab (Led by Infrastructure + The Board)

Raffi proposed that the committee move into the Orange Classroom in collaboration with the Education Coordinator and the Digital Media Chair. That plan merged with a plan for a computer lab. The plan is subject to change. The current plan is to have standardized desktop hardware and software and a space for securely storing physical resources specific to our committee. See this Talk post for a preview of the hardware that will be used in the lab.

Dallas Coder Night (Led by Raffi)

Dallas Coder Night is a meetup, virtual until we reopen our doors, where 0-2 talks are given on software development topics, e.g. “How to make a basic website with React”, “The story of how I fixed this nasty bug”, “Why MVC is terrible” followed by some time for socializing, working on projects, and/or chatting among developers (not necessarily about development). The chatting afterward part doesn't work well in a video conference, but it will work in person.
