We have finally scheduled this fall's introductory lectures in programming. The lectures will be held in room Q24 on the KTH main campus, starting on wednesday next week. The full schedule is as follows:

  • Introduction to Python - Wednesday 2 oct, 18:00

  • Introduction to Git - Wednesday 16 oct, 18:00

The programming lectures will be aimed towards thos who have never coded before, or who have played around with python or Java but never written any larger programs.

All lectures will begin with a presentation, followed by a practise session where students can work on problems themselves. If you are interested in helping out during the practise sessions, either let us know or simply show up at your preferred lecture(s).

Here's the slides from the git introduction.

Stacken will be at the Student Union Day the 21th August 2019. We will be there from 10 to 16. This is an excellent time to say hi, talk with us if there is something you like to know.

After the event, if you like to contact us see the page Forum. You are also welcome to our club room at any Thursday evening (after 7 PM).

Stacken

Stacken Computer Club is open for students or employees at the Royal Institute of Technology founded in 1978. We have a clubroom located in the Q-building where we have a room with a sofa, fridge, kitchen and of course plenty of computers. Also we have a server hall where we run several services like storage, email and web pages. The club is a student organization under THS, the official student union at KTH.

The club has plenty of knowledge among its members, we have everything from new students who are here to learn and use the clubroom to study, all the way to older members that have moved on and started to work with everything from programming to administration of large clusters of servers.

Thursday evenings from 7 PM are our traditional day where we meet in the clubroom and build something, debug a problem or discuss something interesting. If you are interested you are always welcome at any Thursday evening, knock at our door at the 2nd level in the Q-building.

Membership

Membership in Stacken is completely free for THS members. For everyone else there is a fee of 119 kr/year.

På torsdag 9 maj klockan 19:30, i en sal nära Stackenlokalen i Q-huset plan 2, kommer Andreas Edvardsson och Björn Pehrson att hålla en Stackenföreläsning om AMPRNet.

Grunden för AMPRNet är IPv4-adressrymden 44.0.0.0/8, ett A-nät som tilldelades världens radioamatörer i Internets barndom. Sverige har fått B-nätet 44.140.0.0/16 att förvalta och har sedan 2012 en överenskommese med Sunet om Internettransit med målet att på frivilligbasis göra amatörrörelsens utrustning och kompetens tillgänglig för organisationer med beredskapsansvar när kommersiella alternativ sviktar eller saknas.

Föredraget kommer att kort beskriva den pågående utbyggnaden av nätet, med tonvikt på redundans och robusthet, och fokusera på IT-tjänster och säkerhetsfrågor för olika beredskapsscenarier, exempelvis informationsbunkring, stöd för frånkopplad drift och samarbete mellan olika beredskapsorganisationer, mm.

Andreas Edvardsson är F-teknolog, radioamatör och ordförande i THR. Björn Pehrson är pensionerad KTH-lärare i Kommunikationssystem, radioamatör, medlem i THR och bygger sensornätverk i Östafrika.

Thursday may 2, at 19:30 in a room close to the Stacken clubroom in the Q building, Alexander Hjelm will host a Stacken lecture about the Godot game engine.

Godot is the first fully integrated game development studio that is completely free and open source. With Godot, you can make games in C++/C# or the python-like GDScript language, and export them to PC, mobile and web platforms. Unlike Unity and Unreal Engine, there are no strings attached: no royalties, nothing. Your game is yours, down to the last line of engine code.

During the lecture, we will create a game from scratch using the free game engine Godot. The audience will decide what kind of game they would like to see, and there will be time to follow along on your own PC and ask questions. Afterwards we will have a QA-session where any questions are welcome, either about Godot or game development in general.

Alexander Hjelm is a Computer Science master's student and spare time indie developer. He works for a small studio that are creating RAZE: a 2D cyberpunk platformer scheduled for release this year.
