If you'd like to be involved with scheduling cool events, recruiting interesting guest speaker, learning how to demo on crazy old machines, or putting together attractive design materials, head over to Porter Hall A20A on Fridays between 4:00 and 5:00PM!

Does the thought of:

  • Hacking on nifty programming projects
  • Offering useful services to the CMU community
  • Spending your Saturday nights refrigerated in a machine room
  • Promoting open source development and advocacy
