Last Theme Night of DevFest is TONIGHT!

Theme Night - Building Something People Want with FREE FOOD (HamDel)
Thursday 2/2, 8pm – 10pm in 602 Hamilton

99% of startups fail. The overwhelming majority of the time, it's because they build something people don't want. Building something people want isn't just something startups face; fundamentally, this is something everyone, everyone has to do. The YC motto is "build something people want". Hear from YC alums David Albert and Nicholas Bergson-Shilcock, and a Senior Engineer from Twitter talk about figuring out what people want.

TONIGHT!
Theme Night - Databases with FREE FOOD
Tuesday 1/31, 8-10pm in CS Lounge

Chances are, if you're writing an app that does anything interesting, you'll be creating, storing, and/or using data. "What database management system should I use? What are the relative merits of relational and non-relational databases? What's a Riak?" Featuring Alex Sicular on non-relational databases and Yufei Liu with Hans Hyttinen on MySQL and relational databases.

The opening hackathon last weekend was awesome, but if you missed it don't worry -- DevFest is just getting started. We have events every day this week leading up to the closing hackathon (starting on 2/3) and DemoFest (2/4).

Later this evening, DevFest continues with:
Alumni Feedback Session with FREE FOOD
Monday 1/30, 8-10pm in CS Lounge

Share dinner (catered from Saji!) with alumni and get feedback on your app! This will be a great chance to meet Columbia alumni working in the tech industry and at startups across NYC. You can get valuable advice on your application for DevFest and on opportunities that await you when you graduate!

TechCulture
Saturday, 12/3, 11am–3 pm
CS Lounge

How can software improve freedom, increase participation, help the bottom line, and make the world a better place? How can you write software that improves over time and takes on a life of its own? How do you build a resume as a developer?

James Socol of Mozilla, one of the world's largest Open Source organizations, takes you on a tour of the Open Source landscape and points out how Open Source can help you and how you can get involved and it.

(And for those of you who also use Facebook)

Come out to the last workshop of this semester!

Git
Tue, December 6, 9pm – 10pm
Hamilton 503

Have you ever broken your code entirely and wasted time getting back to a working state?
Do you still work on projects with others by sending dated files to each other? Come to this interactive workshop, and learn the wonders of distributed version control! You'll be working with others on the same repository, and seeing each other's changes live.

Please bring a laptop to this workshop!

ADI Holiday Party!
Thu, December 1, 8:30pm – 10:30pm
Computer Science Lounge, 4th floor Mudd

Come out and join ADI for drinks, deserts, talk tech, and meet Columbia alums working in startups! We'll have egg nog, apple cider, cake, cookies, and pastries to set the mood at this great opportunity to meet our members, upperclassmen, and Columbia alumni to talk about startups, programming, how to get involved in Columbia's fast growing developer community, or anything else you're interested in!

We'd love to answer any questions you have about classes and discuss the benefits of making a hobby or major out of computers. You'll also learn about our upcoming tech workshops where we teach you programming languages, how to setup a website and much more!

Better yet, with the holidays approaching, but finals in the way, we're here to have a good time. Everyone's welcome to attend! Bring a friend and we'll see you there!
