Welcome to the brand new CompSoc website, lots of changes have taken place! To read about it, please see About The CompSoc Website.

Welcome to the website of the Oxford University Computer Society (CompSoc). We're here to promote the use of computers throughout the university, to organise meetings and talks on computing-related subjects, and to generally do things of a computer-related nature.

Here you can find information about upcoming events, about the society itself, and how you can get involved.

Upcoming Events

Here's a list of some upcoming events, visit the Events Page for a more comprehensive list.

Google Talk - Designing Products at Google

Date: Wednesday Week 2 - 22 October 2014 Time: 07:00 PM Facebook Event Place: Lecture Theatre A - Dept. of Computer Science Tags: Google Corporate Sponsor Event Talk

This talk, given by a recent CompSci graduate from Keble, will explain how Google turns an idea into a product used by billions of people worldwide. It will focus on product design, strategy and team management as well as how Google takes entrepreneurial CompSci graduates and gives them immediate ownership of entire products at Google.

Please fill out the registration form if you plan on attending, as Google may be raffling some Chromecasts to those who do :)

Learn to Code: Session 2

About Learn to Code

During these events, there will be a mixture of interactive workshops and talks. We will be teaching you the basics of programming using Python. These events are good if you have zero coding experience, but they are also valuable if you already have started coding and would like to better your skills. We also welcome people who already have good coding experience as the more volunteers the better!

These events are always followed by our weekly Geek Night.

You can find out more information about this series of events over at ox.compsoc.net/learn

We also have a facebook group for discussion if you are taking part in this course: fb.com/groups/OXLearnToCode

...and a group for those who would like to volunteer: fb.com/groups/OXLearnToCodeHelpers
