For this interactive workshop, the last ACM meeting and MSP Talk of the semester, Ryan will be talking about Test Driven Development. TDD is a skill that is becoming more prominent with Software Development, and something that interviewers want to hear you talk about, whether you like it or not. Bring your laptop loaded with Visual Studio C# or Java/Junit. We will be going over a coding example where you will see for yourself the perks of TDD.
The presence of uncertainty in the real world makes robustness a desirable property of solutions to constraint satisfaction and optimization problems. A solution is said to be robust if it can be easily repaired when unexpected events happen. Those robust solutions may be suboptimal but, in many real world situations, it is worth sacrificing some optimality for a stronger solution. In this talk we will consider the problem of robustness in weighted MaxSAT, by showing how robust solutions to weighted MaxSAT instances can be easily obtained via reformulation into pseudo-Boolean formulae.
Grant Lindburg is going to come share his experience as an entrepreneur and field questions from anybody interested in utilizing their tech skills before they graduate, finding out more about business, or what tech skills they can learn to help market themselves.
Microsoft Student Partner Ryan Wedoff will give a workshop on what Git and Github is all about! Bring a laptop to follow along!
