    Dear GEWIS members, This week, on June 28th, GEWIS enters its 40th year as an association. Not only does this mean that GEWIS is now officially a boomer, it's also the start of the 8th Lustrum! Over the next year, the Lustrum Committee GR8-TIMES will make sure to deliver you some Great Times. I'm glad to announce the theme to you all, which is- hold on, I am having some interference problems with my internet connection.. Strange things are going on..! I.. what is this, I need to go. I can only say that there will be a lustrum theme reveal video on the 28th of June at 13.08. There are multiple ways to watch this video. At first there will be a watching party in the GEWIS room. Next to that the video will go onto Youtube HERE. Make sure to watch it! We hope to see you at GEWIS on June 28th June or later in the year at one of our activities! Hugs, GR8-TIMES

    Due to the covid pandemic, social life has deteriorated quite a bit. This is true for you as a student and your lecturers. TRAIN, first-year students of the FYC’s Meerkats and GeLØL want to give you a chance to catch up on all the missed small talk this year in our Online Café! After a short and handy workshop on social networking organized by trainers Imre Végh and Jan Reinder Rosing from “Project Wijsheid” (you might know them from Motivation in Isolation and Willpower!). You will have the chance to meet and get to know 13 of your lecturers and other important people from TU/e on a more personal, casual level. You will be placed in a group with 2 or 3 other students so you also have the opportunity to expand your social network with colleague students. You are encouraged to just grab a beer, grab a snack, sit back and just chat about whatever comes to mind. Make sure to think about some questions or topics you want to talk about with the lecturers and others. In case the conversation gets stuck, you can always rely on some interesting topics and conversation starters as well as some interesting videos and situations to talk about. There is a hard limit of 50 people to guarantee quality and enough time for each participant so make sure to sign up on time. The event starts at 19:00 and takes place through Zoom. It will be free but please unsubscribe if it turns out you're not available so we can make place for another person. We hope to see you there!

    Many high-school students are doing their final exams right now and studying hard to be able to come to the TU/e next year. As many of you might remember, the university always organizes a study-choice check for prospective students. Like last year, GEWIS gets the opportunity to close off the rather serious day with a fun pubquiz! It's a wonderful opportunity for high-school students to get to know each other, but also for us, as GEWIS, to meet our soon-to-be members! On the evening of June 15, the board will organize up a pubquiz for small groups of high-school students coming to study Applied Mathematics under guidance of GEWIS members. And that's where we need you! Do you want to help out on this cozy evening to meet and guide a small group of upcoming students? Subscribe below! You don't have to study Applied Mathematics to volunteer for the pubquiz! More details will follow later.

    (Be aware, this event is only for people who registered to be an intro-parent) Disclaimer: It is not yet certain that this activity can take place in another form than mentioned below or at all. Dear introparent, Fortunately, there is a chance that this year we can have an introparent bonding activity (IBA)! This activity will take place on the 14th of June. During this activity we will be playing some games to get you acquainted with the introtheme. These games will be a surprise for now 🙂. This activity will be set up similarly to the borrels; you should subscribe with your fellow introparent and you will be placed on a yellow table together with another pair of parents. To make sure we can facilitate this activity for all subscribed introparents, we have to split up the IBA in two different timeslots. The first timeslot will be from 16:00 until 17:50. The second one will be from 18:10 until 20:00. When subscribing you can indicate which timeslot you prefer or indicate if you are not available in one. When indicating your preference please take into account that during the second timeslot, there will also be another GEWIS activity, namely the pubquiz for new students. So make sure you do not subscribe for both at the same time. (The BAC will be serving drinks so bring your BAC coins with you!) We hope to see you all! Note: dinner will not be arranged. However, we will make sure there are some snacks for you.

    Does it feel as if the walls of your room are closing in on you? Are you in desperate need of some fresh air? Do you want to see the parks of Eindhoven? Then GEDWAAL has just the activity for you! Instead of our usual winter hike weekend, we have set out a hike next week on Saturday the 12th of June through the beautiful parks the South of Eindhoven has to offer. To finish the hike, you and your friends have to solve several puzzles and follow some challenging techniques to find the correct routes. You will be walking in groups of four people, which we will create. However, if you want you can subscribe with a friend and we will make sure that the two of you will be in the same group. To help you survive several extreme weather situations and the inevitable craving for snacks while walking, we have put together a survival bag to get you through the day. Are you interested in joining? Then quickly subscribe since there are only 28 spots available. If the maximum number of subscriptions has been reached in the evening of Tuesday (June 8th), there will be a draw. We hope to see you next week!

    WHAT EuroTeQ Engineering University is looking for an app to reach out to its students and collect their feedback in a continuous and fun way. The app should include elements of gamification and should allow us to collect feedback and share lessons learnt with targeted groups that use the app. The app is supposed to be engaging and should make students enthusiastic about participating continuously. One way of using gamification is introducing a friendly competitive element to the app. Think of a set of triggers that use university and regional pride to facilitate exchanging ideas and feedback competitively. OUR MOTTO: DARE TO MAKE IT FUN! What the app should look like is up to you! Teams will have 24 hours to develop a design idea and a pitch to show their idea to the judges. You do not have to create a demo version (but you can, of course!). We will provide the participating teams with a starter kit, including markers, post-its, merchandise and snacks to get you started. At the end of the 24 hours, each team will have 5 minutes to pitch their app design idea to the judges. How you pitch your idea is up to you. Just make sure you meet the brief: the app should be a tool for asking feedback and should include gamification elements. You can pitch your design idea in any way you like, as long as we can watch it via Twitch livestream. Get creative! All participants of the winning team will get their very own 3D printer! WHERE Central introduction, pitches and crowning of the winner will happen online via Twitch live stream and communication between teams will be facilitated via Discord. EuroTeQ Engineering University offers all participating teams a starter kit, including markers, post-its, drinks and snacks to get you all started. WHO Students from the six partner universities DTU, TalTech, CTU, TU/e, TUM and Ecole Polytechnique l'X are highly encouraged to join this event. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a BSc, MSc, PhD or PDEng degree, you’re all welcome to join. You can sign up in teams of 3-5 students. QUESTIONS? Reach out to us via euroteq@tue.nl Register at the TU/e site here

    What is your favorite thing to do when you have a break from lectures and instructions? That’s right, eat, drink and talk with friends. We want to organize an activity where all these things come together, namely a free picnic on campus. On Friday, the 11th of June in the break (12:30-13:30), there will be one for you guys! You will get a little lunch package from us with some sandwiches, snacks and of course a (non-alcoholic) drink. All you have to bring is a good mood and “gezelligheid”. You can subscribe below. Also, we want you to make a choice for the sandwiches and drinks so we can order exactly what you want. We do have a limit on the number of people allowed, so if there are too many people the first 50 will have a place to sit. If you are not with the first 50 people then you can pick up the lunch package but cannot attend the picnic. The activity is meant as an opportunity for first year students, both in- and outside of GEWIS to meet each other under a nice lunch. This means that in case the hard limit is reached, first year students will have priority.

    Dear members, The planned constitution drink unfortunately wasn't in the cards, at least not according to our original plans. Instead we opted for a nice collaboration with the BAC to set-up a wonderful borrel where you can still enjoy the company of the current board in their full glory while they're still here! You can sign up with a borrelbuddy, much like regular borrels. The theme is peach, so have a look through your wardrobe! 🍑🍑🍑Alternatively, order-committee-like attire or GEWIS ties also come highly recommended. To reward you for still showing your love to the current board we will provide you with a nice 'bestuursdrankje' on the side as well. If more people are signed up than the capacity allows for we will have to hold a draw. Please note that the subscription deadline is Wednesday the 9th of June at 23:59 and we expect you to be there during the entire duration! We look forward to seeing you, Distant hugs, The 39th board of GEWIS 🍑

    Dear GEWIS Member, After already a few successful drinks, we, as ATHENA wanted to continue this by adding a very "silent" drink in collaboration with the BAC. Therefore, we will be organizing the Sangria Silent Disco Borrrrel on the 8th of June from 16.30-19.30. With the weather improving these days and hopefully COVID nearly behind us, we want to celebrate the start of the summer with you and drink some nice cold sangria's. You can order one card with three different sangrias for only 4.50! You have to subscribe and pay in advance since it will not be possible to buy extra cards during the drink itself. Everyone attending will also receive a nice RGB headphone during this drink, such that we all can listen to one of the three different music channels. Due to COVID restrictions, we will have a draw if too many people subscribe. Hope to see you there! Love, ATHENA

    Travel back to Ancient Greece with the GEBEP: Euclidean Geometry Mathematics Competition! On the evening of June 7, we are challenging you with some classical geometry problems that must be solved by mere means of a ruler and compass. These puzzles shall, of course, be accompanied by a bottle of Greek wine (or soft drinks) and some traditional Greek food, so that you may be wholly transported to the Mediterranean backdrop against which Euclid wrote his famous 'Elements'. The competition will take on campus from 17:00-20:00. You can participate in teams of 2 and the problems will vary from easy to difficult so that anyone has a good introduction and more importantly: a fun time! Everyone who participates pays a participation fee of €1. With this, you get soft drinks and greek food. However, to make the experience complete, you can order some bottles of wine as well! You get the first bottle of wine for €3 and a second bottle for €5. If you're confused, here are the total prices: No wine: €1 1 bottle of wine: €4 2 bottles of wine: €9

    W.S.G. Abacus, the study association for Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente, annually organizes a symposium oriented on mathematics. This year we have the great honor of organizing a Nationaal Wiskunde Symposium (NWS). This NWS will take place online on Friday the 4th of June 2021. The theme of this year’s NWS will be “Find your limit”. During the current pandemic humankind, society, companies, and many more things are pushed to find their limits. Social distancing and other measures were applied based on mathematical models about the pandemic. While we believe enough is being spoken about the limiting factors of this pandemic, we became very interested in other limits that humans, society, and mathematics encounter. Some interesting talks during this NWS will cover (among others): the limit of social media (fake news) the limit of the human life span Enroll before the 23rd of May for a goody bag. You will then be welcome to join the NWS, including many interesting presentations. The full program of the day can be found here. You will also find some information about all lectures and lecturers there. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the board or the organizing party.

    Simulation in a multidisciplinary engineering project In this talk we look at how we can simulate a complex, multidisciplinary industrial process. Specifically, we look at the so-called Energiefabriek (Energy factory) in Hengelo. The Energiefabriek creates energy out of waste water sludge (=sewage). This projects involves chemical engineering, mechanical eng., electrical eng., and process automation. We created a simulator that lets you simulate the behaviour of all of these disciplines. We look at how we created it, and how we can use it to optimize the design of the Energiefabriek. Using an online Jupyter notebook, you are yourself invited to try and optimize the simulation model and solve our (self-inflicted) bugs. Witteveen+Bos is an engineering and consultancy firm, which specializes in projects in the fields of infrastructure, water, environment and construction. The content of this lecture will be updated soon, but you can already read more about Witteveen+Bos here! GEWIS members will get the opportunity to receive free lunch, either by picking up a free Hubble lunch box (online participation) or there will be lunch facilitated (on campus participation). Currently we can not guarantee that the lecture will be hosted on campus. There will be a maximum of 30 places available for on campus participation.

    On the 1st of June the inauguration drink of the 39th board will finally take place on campus! Former GEWIS boards, fraternities, committees and other groups are invited. Due to the strict corona regulations, a limited number of places is available, so timeslots will be assigned. If not enough timeslots are available, a raffle will determine who can attend. If you want to congratulate the 39th board with their position and enjoy some free beer, fill in the form with a group of max. 4 people. Also, make sure that there is no overlap of persons between groups, so we can use the available space optimally! As there are also external parties subscribing to this event instead of subscribing via the GEWIS website you can subscribe here: https://forms.gle/5Vp9GG9dEDWursew5.

    Sioux Technologies partners with companies abroad (Romania, Germany, Vietnam and China) to extend their possibilities worldwide. Working with teams abroad can be challenging. You work on different locations and even in different time zones. In addition to that, you also need to overcome the language barriers and cultural differences. Making it feel as one team is challenging, but certainly not impossible. In this talk you will get insights in working with remote teams, the practical side, and the benefits. The talk is given by Koen van Langen. Koen is a Senior Software Designer and has worked with remote teams on several projects. In his role he is responsible to collect requirements from the customer, create designs out of it and together with the team members abroad solve the problems of the customer. Koen guides and coaches the abroad team members to get to a qualified software solution. He combines a technical role, e.g., writing code, design, etc., with a more process-oriented role, by guiding the process and the team members from design to delivery. GEWIS members will get the opportunity to receive free lunch, either by picking up a free Hubble lunch box (online participation) or there will be lunch facilitated (on campus participation). Currently we can not guarantee that the lecture will be hosted on campus. There will be a maximum of 30 places available for on campus participation.

    In order to make the 8th lustrum of GEWIS as unforgettable as possible, we are looking into the possibility of organising an amazing on of Lustrum ski trip! This interest list is meant to gauge the interest for such a fantastic trip. The idea is to go ski for a (mid) week in the Alps during the first week of Q3, included in the trip for around 300 euros will be the transport to and from the Alps, the accommodation and breakfast, and lastly of course the ski pass. If you are thinking what an amazing trip but I don't like skiing we are also looking into the possibility to subscribe for a reduced price of around 150 euro without a ski pass included. This would be for the people who want to enjoy nature another way or who are only interested in the partying and après skiing. We would like to get to know how many people would be interested in a fun ski trip and whether this interest would be for skiing or only for partying/après skiing without a ski pass for a reduced price. The ski trip would most likely be a (mid) week long. If you have any other comments then please also let us know, even if you don't want to join the trip but still have anything to say you can subscribe. tldr; Interest list for a lustrum ski trip!

    Dear members / interestees, As you might imagine GEWIS needs a lot of enthusiastic students to keep operating as our study association has been doing for years. To make sure this all continues smoothly GEWIS has a lot of committees that each have their own identity and function. Being a part of committee is very useful for learning new domain-specific things, but you can also have a lot of fun together! How do you find out which committee might be interesting for you? Not to worry, we'll make it easy for you by collecting all of our committees at a central location where they're all ready to answer any questions you might have. Much like other years, this year will also feature a committee market! Come and have a nice chat with our different committees to find out whether they might be something you would like to be a part of! GEWIS has many committees, varying from looking after our computers to setting up a weekend in which you go sailing. To just name a few of the fields are committees work in: Setting up fun activities for the association and its members, as well as students of our faculty. Varying from sponsored poker tournaments to organizing "Wie is de mol"-inspired weekends. Setting up events in the field of personal development and career Setting up events in the field of education Maintaining GEWIS' website and building new features Maintaining GEWIS' hardware, software and mail services Looking after GEWIS' styling and coming up with new designs Creating and distributing our magazine: Supremum Taking pictures during activities Plenty of fun things to do, experiences from which you can also learn a lot! As the informational overview suggests this year's edition of the committee market will take place on the platform Gather.town. Use this link to join the online gathering space. You do not have to be a member or be enrolled in this activity to join the online space, but it would greatly help us with making an estimate for the capacity for the activity! See you soon!

    Every day is a holiday. And no, we’re not just saying that because we like holidays – it really is a special day every day, and as FESTIVITEIT we would love to celebrate all these days. However, most years we give priority to the bigger holidays, and the smaller ones get forgotten. But not this year! The small holidays deserve some recognition too, and that’s why we’ll dedicate an entire week to celebrating small holidays! For each day of this week, we’ve selected a theme (to celebrate a holiday) and a colour (to celebrate pride month). Your job is to do something with this theme or this colour. You can put as much creativity and effort in this as you like: if, for example, the colour is purple and the theme is peanut butter, you can eat some peanut butter, create some purple peanut butter, make a dish using peanut butter, take a picture of something purple, make some art with peanut butter, write a poem in purple ink about peanut butter, do a photoshoot with peanut butter… you name it! Each of your submissions will earn you points. The participant(s) with the most points at the end of the week will earn a prize. You'll receive a point if you submit something related to the theme or colour. You can receive an extra point by combining the theme and colour in one submission, or by making the most creative submission. The winner can choose between 3 pc games in which they can use their creativity. So don’t hesitate and come celebrate some holidays with us!

    Dear members, After the great success of the First Years Borrel in the first quartile, FYS is hyped to announce the “Mixed Year’s Borrel” . Together with the BAC, we would like to give first years the chance to have a chat with the older members of GEWIS. As we want First-Years to experience the social drink as it was before the pandemic, this borrel will be very similar to what once was considered a borrel in the GEWIS room, but then outside. Which is to say a lot of Grolsch, Broodjes Knak and some drinks well known throughout the association. During this borrel every table will consist of two first-years and two older members. In other words, you can subscribe in pairs! Disclaimer: Subscribe before Wednesday the 26th of May at 12:00h. We will create a mix of first year and older year students such that 50% will be first years and 50% will be older years. In case there are more people subscribed than can attend, we will have a draw.

    Dear members, ever wondered what Eindhoven looked 50 years ago? Of course you could go explore the online city archives to find out. But having been inside quite a bit the past few months already B.O.O.M. feels like we can all use some fresh air. To take you on a cool tour through Eindhoven whilst doing a fun challenge we have decided the stratum games would be given a new format this year! Sign up in teams of at most 4 people and go on a quest through Eindhoven. We will send you a bunch of pictures from back in the day, which you and your team need to match up to present day Eindhoven. We can understand that can be quite the challenge so to make sure you have enough time on your hands we decided to give you one full week to complete as many pictures as possible. The team(s) that find the most spots will win amazing prices! A bonus price for the most creative picture is also up for grabs. Of course make sure you do everything in a corona-safe matter. We look forward to receiving your pictures!

    Hello beautiful members of GEWIS! FYC 21-3 GELØL will be hosting a cocktail night! We will be streaming on the 21st of May. If you choose to sign up, we will provide you with several ingredients that you will use to make four epic cocktails with us during the stream! The ingredients can be picked up at a place and time we will provide later via email. During the stream, we will also provide some interesting facts per cocktail, but we of course won’t be doing only cocktail making, as we have some fun segments in between to lighten the mood. Spoiler alert: there will be an epic Kahoot quiz. You can even choose to get together with a couple of friends (to the extent the current measures allow) and sign up together to enjoy the cocktails in great company! If you’re curious, as an example, we’ll be making a Blue Hawaii(an). And more of course, but we don’t want to spoil too much! Unfortunately, we have to put a hard limit on the number of people that can sign up. This is because ordering and packing ingredients has to happen in advance. We have decided to enforce a limit of 60 people. But don’t be sad and sign up before the 14th of May! We will use first come first serve policy. We hope to see you on Friday the 21st!

    This year, GELIMBO returns with a very special edition of the annual GELIMBO Quiz. Year after year, you had the possibility to prove that you know the smartest people by joining them in a team and competing in the GELIMBO Pubquiz. However, this has always been a team effort, but now you will have the opportunity to show how knowledgeable you actually are. Can you outsmart all the other participants? At the beginning of the show a brainteaser will decide who will be The One on the hot seat. In the spotlight, you will have to answer multiple choice questions! However, the other participants also want to be in the spotlight, so they will answer the questions via an online system before you do. As long as you keep answering the questions correctly, you will remain on the hot seat. As soon as you give an incorrect answer, another participant will take your place. However, you want to be in the spotlight, because if you can answer the one million dollar question correctly while you are in the spotlight, you will win a prize! As there are multiple one million dollar questions, there are multiple chances for you to win a prize. After a one million dollar question, a new brainteaser will decide who will be on the hot seat for the next round! Of course, getting in the spotlight has some luck involved, so we will also give a prize to the person who answered the most questions correctly! So subscribe right now and show that you can beat the other 111 contestants! With southern delights, Fraternity GELIMBO

    A picture says more than a thousand words. And first impressions matter! So in a time where everything is digital, a nice profile picture is a must. Especially on LinkedIn; a nice picture helps in creating a network and who knows; finding a job! Is your profile picture out of date? Is your profile picture stupid? Do you not have LinkedIn yet because you don’t have a professional picture of yourself? Of do you think it is nice just to have one? GSM comes to the rescue! On the 19th of May we organize in cooperation with SkillsLab a photoshoot for a professional headshot to use on LinkedIn (and if it is a nice picture, on all your social media accounts, for all we care). Between 12:00 and 17:00 a photographer is ready to make these pictures, probably in the Markthal, but we will announce the precise location soon. How does it work? Register for the activity here on the website, before the 14th of May at 12:00. The same day, around 17:00, everyone who registered gets an email with a doodle to be filled in before May the 17th at 12:00. On that doodle there are timeslots of 15 minutes. You can pick one timeslot, and during each slot there is room for 4 people. So in total, 80 people can have a nice profile picture! We hope to see you there, and your picture online afterwards! Kind regards, GSM!

    APIs Done Right (Or at least not entirely wrong) Have you ever wondered, what are the worst things a developer can do while designing an API ( big or small ) that would drive their colleagues crazy. Those things that will make everyone look at your work and say ( why?...Just why? ). Sometimes learning by wrong example is the fastest way to learn. Join me in a quick overview of how to develop a coherent API from day 1, or rather, how not to do it entirely wrong. Roberto Marques from Wolfpack will share with you my top 10 simple rules of API development gathered over 10 years of experience and personal trial and error. “You may even learn how not to do something wrong today” GEWIS members will get the opportunity to receive free lunch, either by picking up a free Hubble lunch box (online participation) or there will be lunch facilitated (on campus participation). Currently we can not guarantee that the lecture will be hosted on campus. There will be a maximum of 30 places available for on campus participation.

    Most of you remember the Sunday of a typical GEWIS weekend. For those of you who don’t and for the rest of you that would like to reminisce about these wonderful days, I’ll describe the experience for you. You wake up with a headache. If you’re fortunate enough you get served a delightful beer in bed. Others are already awake and busy, too busy for your taste. You make your way to the general room and see the mess that others are trying to tidy up. You start remembering most of what happened the day before and you share a good laugh with your fellow students. After you’ve cleaned up what you deemed your part of the mess and have scavenged together some breakfast, you look for a car ride home and prepare for that nauseating drive. This years Sunday experience of our Digital Decadent Weekend will be a little different. You’ll most likely, and hopefully, still wake up with a headache and memories of an amazing meal the evening before. You’ll be in your own bed a little lonely and miss the comradery to share your misery with. Fortunately, we have a solution. The Sunday of our Digital Decadent Weekend we will stream one of the most classic TV shows of all time. Yes this is exactly what you’re thinking, dispuut “In Vino Veritas” will provide a live stream of our favorite series the Lullo’s. You are all welcomed to the GEWIS discord in which we will screen share the Lullo’s. You’ll be able to chat with your fellow hangover GEWIS members and your favorite I.V.V’ers. In this way we can all pass the time until our hangover has faded together and share a good laugh along the way.

    Dear food lover, As previous participants will confirm, the Decadent Weekend is most famous for its Saturday evening. Tucked away in a foreign castle, the gentlemen of I.V.V have come together to prepare a luxurious seven-course dinner for their guests on the Saturday evening. While the guests are entertained through other means during the day, I.V.V spends all day cooking and baking the most delicious and exciting meals to surprise your tastebuds later that evening. Unfortunately, Mister Corona does not allow us to come together in a large group and enjoy a candlelit dinner. Luckily, I.V.V has been able to take the experience to your doorstep. The boys of Keuken met I.V.V will be joined by a special guest to prepare a four-course meal through a live cooking-stream, and you can even cook along! We will supply you with a box containing all the ingredients and along with the instructions of Dhr. Houthuijs and the special guest, provide you with all the means to create this four-course meal for your guests. The only thing you must do is make sure your wine cellar is stocked. Not convinced yet? Here are some spoilers on the menu. Amuse: Parmaham-package filled with ricotta and asparagus Starter: Undisclosed I.V.V-Specialty Main: Herb-crusted Lamb-Rack with roast potato and caramelised vegetables Dessert: Avocado-Chocolate Mousse with fresh fruit Unlike previews editions of Keuken met I.V.V this edition will be in English! You can join in groups of 2 or 4, as the corona-measures are still unsure. Note that the maximum number of participants is 60! On Wednesday 12 May we will deliver a package containing all the ingredients, but we do expect you to have some basic products at home, like olive oil, salt, pepper, etc. Make sure you or one of your friends have a blender/food-processor as this is required for the dessert. Also, please mention whether you will be eating with GEWIS-members, Non-GEWIS-members or first years! Unfortunately, there is no vegetarian alternative for the menu above, but be sure to look out for a vega-edition of Keuken met I.V.V in the future! If you have questions about food-allergies, just email us at ivv@gewis.nl!

    Dear GEWIS Members, The weekend of the year is upon us. A weekend that is normally dictated by an appropriate degree of decadence, improbable forms of entertainment and, of course, abundant wine consumption makes its resurrection this year, albeit in an alternative form. Dispuut "In Vino Veritas" is once again ready to organize a Digitally Decadent Weekend for you all. The usual road of life towards an exquisite castle has to make way this year for the easy way to the digital meeting. However, do not let this stop you from participating in this series of events, because the quality of the entertainment will not suffer! Where you normally are sent out on the Saturday afternoon of a Decadent Weekend to give Hèt Dispuut time and space to prepare a wonderful dinner for you in the kitchen, this time you will have the opportunity to take a look into the proverbial kitchen of Dispuut "In Vino Veritas". With great pride and pleasure we present the Open General Digital Dispuutsmeeting (OADDM). During the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to join an online meeting filled with the usual serious decisions, loud roars, "jajajas" and vin. Liters of vin. Attention! The fermented grape juice for this occasion will have to be purchased by yourself. It is also advisable to provide yourself with an abundance of decadent snacks of quality. If you have succeeded in this, all that remains is to dial in digitally via the GEWIScordserver. The OADDM will start at 13:00 on Saturday, May 15. See you then! With jovial regards, Bouke Bosma Praeses of Dispuut "In Vino Veritas". P.S.: Don't forget to drink!

    Imagine a world after the lockdown. You are once again able to visit the cinemas and restaurants and you’re having a reunion with your friends. You have decided to go to dinner in a high class establishment using the money you have saved during the lockdown. Naturally you decide to order a bottle of wine, but then it hits you. You’re looking at the wine menu and you can’t tell the temperanillo and chenin blanc apart. You don’t even know which one is red or white. The above scenario should be prevented at all costs. Fortunately, dispuut “In Vino Veritas” is there to help you out. We offer you the opportunity to keep your knowledge on par, refresh your memory or gain a better understanding of wine by means of an online wine tasting experience. Under the guidance of our more than capable Vinoloog der dispuut “In Vino Veritas” Mgr. Sanders you will be able to taste an x-amount of delicious wines. When the evening ends you’ll know almost everything there is to know about these wines and you’ll have the confidence to order the right wine during your future dinners. In order to let this activity be a success in these unsure times we are prepared for two scenarios. The first scenario which is the one we are hoping for, is that you will be allowed to gather in groups of four. In this scenario each group will receive a wine tasting kit consisting of six half bottles of wine. In the scenario that we are only allowed to gather in groups of two we will provide a separate white and red wine tasting kit. Both kits will contain three half bottles of wine. You are allowed to order both kits but this also comes at double the cost. Regardless of the sizes of the groups we wouldn’t dare serving you wine without also serving a few delicacies to prime your taste buds. The wine tasting kits will have to be picked up at a to be disclosed date and location a few days prior to the activity. The costs for this online wine tasting experience will be €5,- per person. A group of four will have to pay a total of €20,- and a group of two would be a total of €10,-. In order to be able to welcome as many first years as possible we have arranged for a €1,- discount for all first years taking part in this activity. In case the explanation above might not have convinced you entirely, there is also the opportunity to win a prize. The group that is best able to absorb the wisdom Mgr. Sanders will share during the activity and thus is best able to answer his questions about the wines, will win this prize. What this prize is will remain a secret for a little while longer but I can assure you, it would be an honor. We hope to welcome all of you at our online wine tasting experience especially as this activity will also mark the opening of our Digital Decadent Weekend. Note that there is a maximum of 80 participants. Note that if you have subscribed with two people you have to mention your choice of wine (white or red). There is a 50-50 ratio of red and white wines, so first come first serve!

    The past year has been marked with disappointment and discontinued activities. We of dispuut “In Vino Veritas” have experienced this ourselves as well. Nevertheless we have found a way to overcome these obstacles. Similarly, I am sure all of us will overcome these troubling times as well. We are proud to inform you that we have found a way to deliver the entire experience of our famed Decadent Weekend to the comfort of your own home. We would like to announce, and are doing so in this piece of writing, our first Digital Decadent Weekend. Anyone who has ever partaken in our Decadent Weekend can agree that the wine should always be plentiful and of supreme quality. In order to satisfy this need we mark the opening of our Digital Decadent Weekend by means of our Online Winetasting activity. Our very own renowned Vinoloog der dispuut “In Vino Veritas” Mgr. Sanders will guide you through the experience of properly tasting wine. He will not only dispense his wisdom, he will also test your ability absorb this information and put it into practice. The group that can answer Mgr. Sanders’ questions about these wines the best, will win a prize that is an absolute honor to receive. During previous editions of our Decadent Weekend we have always provided entertainment during the Saturday afternoon while the main force of I.V.V prepares an outstanding dinner. This edition of our Digital Decadent Weekend will be no different. In case you have ever wondered what it would be like to be a member of dispuut “In Vino Veritas” we offer you a glimpse of this experience. Rather, we offer you the opportunity to experience what it would be like to be a spectator at one of our assemblies. We will hold an Online Open General Fraternity Assembly. Any GEWIS member is invited to listen to us discuss the finer and more important things in life and perhaps pitch in on a few of the subjects. As per usual the Saturday evening will entirely revolve around one of the most exquisite diners of the year. You have all had the chance to take part in one of our Keuken met I.V.V streams. During this weekend we will take this concept to the next level. We offer the opportunity to take a peak into the kitchen of dispuut “In Vino Veritas” as we prepare a dinner worthy of a Digital Decadent Weekend. Not only will you be able to behold the expertise of our chefs, we also provide the necessary ingredients and instructions for anyone to cook along with us. This can only be described as the opportunity of a lifetime to take your cooking close to the level of dispuut “In Vino Veritas”. After all this greatness and the accompanying amounts of wine, we understand that everyone needs a moment to wind down. No need to fret, we have prepared for this as well. The Sunday morning is usually marked by a hangover, cleaning, scavenging for breakfast and preparing for the ride home. The highlight of the morning is often being able to share the misery of your hangover and reminisce about the previous few days. We deem the latter important. Therefore we will setup a livestream of one of our favorite TV shows, de Lullo’s. Anyone is invited to join us in the GEWIS discord and watch one of our favorite series together with us and pass the time until our hangovers have passed. In order to join us on this weekend filled with decadency, wine and good company you can subscribe to any and all of the activities described above on the GEWIS website.

    As the Dutch Railways (NS) we are researching what possibilities there are for Automatic Train Operations (ATO). Our team focusses on researching and experimenting with object detection in a railway environment using camera’s, radar- and lidar-sensors. We use the sensor data in combination with machine learning techniques for object management, like determining the distance of objects to the train and the rail. During this lunch meeting we will explain our current solution and dive a bit deeper into the code and explain which choices we’ve made and which technical/practical challenges we face. The lecture will be hosted by Edgar de Graaf and Tom Abbink GEWIS members will get the opportunity to receive free lunch, either by picking up a free Hubble lunch box (online participation) or there will be lunch facilitated (on campus participation). Currently we can not guarantee that the lecture will be hosted on campus. There will be a maximum of 30 places available for on campus participation.

    Now that we find ourselves in the year 2021, it is more essential than ever to know your way around with a camera. Do you have what it takes to be a pretty good photographer? During the first four weeks of the last quartile (May 10th – June 5th ), those who subscribe for this challenge will weekly compete to take the best picture of them all. Each week, there is a unique theme for which the best picture has to be taken. Everyone sends in 1 picture and will receive a set amount of points based upon the votes of other people per theme. In this way there are weekly winners and there is a winner over all weeks. A small prize for each week’s winner and one big prize for the general champion at the end will be distributed after the grand finale. Note that subscriptions are for teams of 1 (solo, that is), but you are allowed to work together to create a cool picture. Is it not convenient to be busy with this challenge for the full 4 weeks? Not a problem! You can also participate for one week and try to win that specific challenge! We do not expect a perfect picture, we just hope that they will be pretty good! More information on the competition will be provided by our Instagram account (@pretty.good.picture) and or via mail once subscribed. There is a maximum number of participants, which is 100, and we hope you are one of them!

    tl;dr. Subscribe with one borrelbuddy and state your two preferred borrel days. We try to give everyone at least one borrel. During the BAC lustrum week three borrels will take place with limited capacities, that is why we can hopefully give everyone at least one borrel day. To join a borrel with a friend, state your two preferred days and hopefully we can give you your preferred day. Please note: Every borrel starts at 16:00 and ends at 18:00. If you cannot participate the whole borrel, leave your spot for someone that can join the whole borrel. Tuesday May 4th: 'A whole year in one borrel' borrel As we did not have that much borrels in the last year, we give you the opportunity to catch up on some borrels you have missed, namely the Christmas gala Borrel and the Carnivalsborrel. There will be a hour of prosecco drinking and one hour of taking shots with a traditional borrel card. Thursday May 6th: 'It burns when I pee' borrel On Thursday it will be BAC-brand liberation day! To celebrate, the borrel will be in the theme 'it burns when I pee', with appropriately themed drinks and snacks. You can purchase a card of drinks or a snack for coins, of enjoy a cold glass of Grolsch, not Brand of course. Friday May 7th: Oud-BAC borrel Traditionally we close off the lustrum week with the Oud-BAC borrel, a borrel where lots of old BAC members come to demonstrate their drafting and drinking skills. If you feel like having an old school borrel, be sure to subscribe for this borrel.

    This lecture will be given in Dutch Gehackt en nu? Je vermoed dat je bedrijf is gehackt en dat je mogelijke schade hierdoor leidt. Wat nu? Wat dan begint is incident response fase. Wat gebeurt er allemaal precies als je incident response uitvoert? Het Blue Team van Ordina zal je meenemen aan de hand van een casus door de stappen van incident response om een vermoedelijke hack te analyseren en op te lossen. We nemen je mee in de ervaring van het Blue Team hoe het is om incident response uit te voeren. We zullen daarbij inzoomen op het onderzoek hoe de hack is ontstaan, het oplossen van de hack en niet te vergeten het kijken naar de toekomst zodat dit niet nog een keer voorkomt. Het blussen van de brand is één maar het ervoor zorgen dat de brand niet weer ontstaat is ook belangrijk. Graag zien we je bij de lunchlezing zodat we je hier meer over kunnen vertellen. GEWIS leden kunnen gratis lunch krijgen, ofwel door het ophalen van een Hubble lunch box (online deelname) ofwel er wordt lunch gefaciliteerd (op campus deelname). Op het moment kunnen we niet garanderen dat deze lezing op campus georganiseerd kanworden. Er zullen maximaal 30 plekken beschikbaar zijn voor op campus deelname.

    TL;DR: Interested in a study trip in the summer of 2022/2023? Subscribe! Hey there! Every 2 years a group of GEWIS members go on an amazing studytrip during the summer holidays. These trips are organized by a committee of GEWIS members, along the way SSG (Stichting Studiereizen GEWIS) is there to help them. On the trip you'll go to some foreign companies, universities and of course have a bunch of fun abroad! With corona still not fully under control we are looking into the possibility of setting up a new travel committee if enough people are interested in going on a super cool study trip in the summer vacation of 2022. Looking at the current situation in the world the study trip would probably be a bit closer at home (think Europe) than the previous two (South Africa & Brazil). For the people that are not only interested in going on a study trip but would also love to organize it you can tick the box below! We'll contact those people by mail for an info lunch.

    Dear Batavieren, It is that time of the year again. The Batavierenrace will take place on the 23rd and 24th of April! Just like last year, in different circumstances. Let’s make the best out of it together! We have to run 250 kilometres together. This means that we will gather screenshots from a running app where your name, your distance, your time and the lap can be seen. So if you would like to participate, run a distance of at least 5 kilometres and make a screenshot of your lap. Send your screenshot to the email address bata@gewis.nl and participate in the online Batavierenrace 2021! For the photoalbum, it would be nice if we can keep up with each other via selfies in the WhatsApp group. Then we have something to remember and to cherish. We will close off the weekend with a social drink. Everyone can participate, there is no maximum of subscriptions, so subscribe such that we know that we have enough participants. Please keep in mind the measures which apply at the time of the 23rd and 24th of April. We hope to see you! With sportive regards, The Bata committee

    Dear member, You will probably have heard something about the SNiC, a student symposium for computer science students from study associations all over the Netherlands which takes place (almost) every year. GEWIS has arrived at a unique opportunity to do a bid (organisation proposal) for November 2022! For that reason we are looking for students that would like to become a part of the committee that sets up the aforementioned edition! With the help of the SNiC advisory organ you will organize a symposium for around 700 students from all over the country. You will have contact with lots of interesting speakers and companies. Or you will make sure the conference room suits perfectly for the keynotes and everyone has a delicious lunch and dinner. If you are interested in doing this or would like more information, please send a mail to snicboard@gewis.nl! If you're still a bit unsure or would like more information we've set-up an info session to help you decide. Subscribe below! With kind regards, The 39th board

    On the 20th of April, Défi will be hosting a Game Show, Do It With Défi! During this Game Show, we will have several rounds to test your knowledge and creativity. A lot of interestingly themed rounds, each with a special Défi touch! Throughout the Game Show, there will also be interactive challenges to get power-ups on your total score. For the challenges, you will need some undefined objects to get yourself going. Therefore we give you the possibility to get a Challenge Box! This Box contains everything you need to fulfill all challenges and win the Game Show! However, Défi would not be Défi if we already gave you insights in everything that this Game Show entails. So be prepared for a lot of unexpected events, crazy rounds of trivia, and a lot of fun throughout the game show. Note that we only have 72 Challenge Boxes available. You can buy a Challenge Box, but it is not mandatory to buy one to participate in the activity. If there are more than 72 subscriptions within the first 24 hours after opening the activity, we will have a draw. The Challenge Box needs to be picked up at GEWIS, so only subscribe if you are able to come and collect it (or convince someone else to do so for you). If you do not want the Challenge Box, we will provide you with a grocery list for the challenges, just before the activity. The Game Show is done in teams of 4-6 people, please subscribe below by mentioning your team name! We hope to see you at Do It With Défi! 💜

    Dear members, Due to the longlasting lockdown, many activities were cancelled and the board wants to make up for this. Therefore, the board organizes a brainstorm to come up and discuss different ideas! The board prefers initiatives for this financial year and not move anything to the next financial year. However, we are open for any ideas you might have. So do you have one or more nice ideas? Or do you want to give your opinion on the ideas that are on the table? Then join this brainstorm! Of course, you can also send your ideas to the Treasurer (pm@gewis.nl), so Roy will take them to the brainstorm. You can also contact Roy for more details about this brainstorm and the current situation. See you then!

    In these weary times of lockdown there are lots of things to be missed: think of parties, festivals and concerts. However, if you are a true GEWIS’er, chances are that you miss the Thursday borrels most of all. So does the BAC. In fact, no one misses the borrels more than the BAC! Since it’s hard for us to organise activities these days, we are afraid that you forgot who we are, or even worse, that you might not even know us yet. Therefore, we came up with something that is similar to the regular borrel experience, where you also get to know us (once again): an evening filled with beer, some snacks and (you’ll have to find this yourself) good company. We made a selection of 8 very diverse special beers, which you can drink together with a friend! There is a twist: we will remove the labels of the beers, so you can test your beer tasting skills, and see if you recognise which beer you are drinking. We will also provide some trademark borrel snacks for you to go along with the beers! Don’t worry about this being a contest, if you participate you are automatically a winner (after all, drinking is winning and winning is drinking!), we will, however, provide a form in which you can check how many beers you did recognise. Each beer package is meant for 2 persons. So find a friend with just as much love for beer as you, and subscribe now! Note that there are only 48 packages, and the subscription deadline is Thursday the 8th of April! Late subscriptions can not be accomodated. There will not be a draw. Note2: You will need to pick up the beer package between Monday 12th en Thursday 15th of April. You can come by GEWIS to pick it up between 10:00 and 16:00, but to make sure that GEWIS is open, you will have to reach out to the board beforehand via whatsapp: 040-2472815

    Do you know that feeling when you are looking at your own photos on the GEWIS website, that the photos of the Carnavalsborrel of one year ago are almost at the top? Or the feeling that you have no good GEWIS profile pictures anymore? Or that you are stuck in your room and want to do something else? We too! Luckily, GEFLITST is here to help. "Normally" we would already have organized two photobooths already, but this year we have done 0. Therefore we organize an outdoor drive-in photobooth on the 26th of March in the Karpendonkse Plas! It is very simple: you sign up on the GEWIS website and choose a timeslot in the Doodle to have a picture taken with your buddy. At home, you look for some fun attributes, put them in your bag, take them with you to the Karpendonkse Plas and get a photo taken with them (and your buddy of course)! Then, GEFLITST will old skool edit these photos and publish them on the GEWIS website. Now you will finally have a nice picture for your profile again, and you have been outside for once. The photographers will keep a distance and adhere to the current corona measures during the activity. Make sure you do not arrive too early before your timeslot, and do not stay too long afterwards. With (very) bad weather, the activity will be cancelled. The exact location of the photobooth will be sent to by email the Thursday evening before the activity, so do not forget to subscribe on the GEWIS website. See you then! The Doodle can be found here, after you have subscribed on the GEWIS website with your buddy.

    Picture this - you're going on about your day, attending lectures, doing assignments, when suddenly you receive a shocking piece of news. One of the TU/e professors of computer science and mathematics has been found dead. You've been working for a while and are due for a break, so in the spirit of procrastination (I mean academic honor and justice), you decide to go investigate. After all, who could possibly crack the case if not the logic-driven, algorithmically thinking members of GEWIS? Get a group of friends together (3-6 people) and come join us for an exciting night of riddles and mystery. No friends? No problem! Sign up anyway and we will assign you to a team to play with and meet some cool new people in the process. After that, all you have to do is join the Discord server where the Meerkats' narrators will guide you through the story. You will work as a group to make decisions about your actions as you put together the puzzle to find out how and why the professor was killed. Clear your schedule for the 25th of March and come investigate this murder with us. We hope to see you there :)

    Project TITAN - An In-Memory High Performance Calculation Engine Anago is a Dutch software company founded in 1999 and is specialised in smart planning solutions. We have developed our own no-code development environment for modelling planning applications. We work for large organisations such as AirFrance KLM, Heineken, UWV, IND and the Ministry of Social Affairs. Examples of planning systems are the long-term planning of a customer contact centre, the scheduling of engine services at KLM and the planning of the asylum seekers chain. Anago Planning applications are modelled using high level building blocks such as data cubes, calculation engines, integrations and views. The result of the application model is a fully working cloud solution. Typically, the planning calculations involve mathematics such as aggregation and allocation, statistical forecasting, various optimisation algorithms and a free model language. Currently, Anago is relying on a multi-dimensional database system that is becoming a bottleneck. We want to replace this technology by developing a new In-Memory High Performance Calculation Engine. The new calculation should support the following: Automatic Parallel (multithreaded) calculations Sparse data handling Efficient Matrix calculations Lazy (on the fly) calculations Language parsing and compiling We are researching the best ways of handling these challenges. During the lunch lecture we want to introduce you to our world of developing a modelling environment such as Anago and the concepts behind our In-Memory calculation engine. You will learn how a low-code or no-code platform is set up and can be used to create state-of-the-art cloud solutions. The lecture will be given by Fraser Wilson, Software Architect at Anago and Thomas de Nooij, Founder of Anago. Note that we can not guarantee at this moment that we can host this lecture on campus. For the on campus lecture that are only 30 spots available, for which a draw will be held. If you would like to attend on campus, please subscribe Thursday before the lecture takes place.

    If you already have experience with GitHub or other platforms that use GIT, you might have wondered what the command line of GIT looks like. A more profound understanding of the underlying commands allows for skills that will not only be useful for working on group projects, but also later in life! That is why TRAIN organizes an Advanced GIT training on March 23rd. During this training, we will dive deeper into the details of git functionalities, as well as exploring more advanced features. During the training the following topics will be discussed: 1. What exactly happens when I checkout a branch or pull code? 2. How to merge or rebase a branch and resolve conflicts 3. Forking a repository and creating a pull request 4. Continuous integration The training takes places online from 19:30 until 21:30. The training will be provided by trainer Gert Jan Timmerman from Info Support. Are you interested to hear more about Info Support as a company? Then let us know via the subscription on the GEWIS website. Are there specific things you would like to learn? Send them in via train@gewis.nl! Does this all sounds too difficult for you? Then the Beginner GIT Training on March 16th might be interesting for you!

    Christmas is famous for the AIVD Christmas Puzzle! This great success made them eager to make one for Easter too this year. Unfortunately, they do not have enough time as they are busy finding the murderer of Balloon Baron, so we took it upon ourselves to make it for them. Challenge yourself and complete the hardest Easter Egg hunt yet. Starting from the 22nd of March, you will have a week (not a year!) to solve all of the puzzles and achieve the glorious title of 200 Easter EiQ Master. Good luck! You can subscribe with a team or, if you think you're up to the challenge, you can try to solve the puzzles alone. If you have trouble finding a team yourself, but you would like a team, just indicate that you're looking for a team and we will try to find one for you!

    FYC The Beer Musketeers presents: The Pokémon drinking game. On the 19th of march we will be hosting the Pokémon drinking game. In the Pokémon drinking game you will venture onto an epic drinking journey. You will travel across Kanto or Johto to acquire all eight badges from the gym masters. At the end you will prove yourself in a battle with the Elite Four. The first one to beat all of this will become a real Pokémon MASTER. The Pokémon drinking game is in its essence the game of the goose (Ganzenbord) except at every tile there is a task which is based on either a Pokémon or another trainer. In addition of having normal tiles you also have the gyms. These tiles cannot be skipped, and each have a bigger task which requires you to drink more or maybe your friends are the ones who have to do the drinking! If you are not interested yet there will also be a prize for each winner of the matches. You can sign up and indicate if you want to be matched with up to 3 friends by choosing the same team name. You can indicate what game mode you want to play, normal, where you will be playing with a small group of around 4 people. Or you can choose for hard mode, where you will be playing with a group of around 8 people. The event will take place Friday 19 march and will be hosted on the GEWIScord, but make sure you sign up before the 18th so we can assign you to groups.

    As announced during the previous GMM, we need to prepare one more statutory change before going to a notary. This is due to the new Wet Toezicht en Bestuur Rechtspersonen ('WBTR'), which came into effect in January. For this new law, we need to make only one small change. This brainstorm is organized to discuss this change. During the brainstorm, we will look for an answer to the question: Who should run the association GEWIS, when the whole board is no longer able to? This is both in the case of dismissal by the GMM, as well as unforseen circumstances (e.g. illness). In the previous GMM, the board said they were planning to create a GM Taskforce for this. However, due to the small size of this change, the board decided to organize a brainstorm instead. So join the meeting and share your idea's! We'll see you then!

    Wondering how you get into Google? This talk is about the interview process at Google, and how to prepare for it. The host is Sander Alewijnse, who started his job as software engineer at Google London 7 years ago after graduating from the TU Eindhoven and being active at GEWIS. Besides his main job working on various software projects (Android, the Google Play store, Google Fit and Fitbit) he has led plenty of coding interviews and knows all the ins and outs about applying at Google, which this talk will focus on. This activity is a collaboration of GEWIS and Break the Algo (breakthealgo.com), who will also be hosting mock interview sessions. Here Sander will also be hosting technical mock interviews to prepare you even better for a job application at Google. During the mock interview, you will be asked to write code to solve a given problem and discuss your decisions along the way. Make sure to brush up on your data structures and algorithms before applying for this exciting opportunity here.

    It’s winter, and despite the mild temperatures the past days, it is still quite barren outside. We, for one, quite miss the colourful flowers and bright green leaves. Luckily we have found the perfect way to bring some green back in your lives: we are going to celebrate Saint Patrick’s day! Saint Patrick’s day is celebrated on the 17th of March, and while the holiday didn’t start out that way, drinking alcohol has become an integral part of the celebration. Therefore we want to invite you all to a Saint Patrick’s day borrel! We have built a beautiful replica of GEWIS for this borrel (see our Instagram for a preview) which will be used in combination with proximity chat to replicate the feeling of being back at GEWIS. Of course a borrel is not complete without a borrel card, so we made one for you! It includes four Irish craft beers, and it costs 8 euros. After the subscription deadline has passed, you will get an email about where and when (probably March 16/17) you can pick up your drinks. During the borrel, there will be some (drinking) games, but you can also just chat with your friends while enjoying some Irish beer. See you then!

    Working on a project mostly means writing code, and working on a project in a team means sharing code, which often goes wrong if you send your code via a text file by email. Luckily for us a solution to this problem already exists; the code sharing language GIT. GIT makes coding together a lot easier! Learn how to use GIT at the GitHub beginner training from TRAIN. This training is aimed at students that have no (or little) experience with code sharing platforms, and who would like to learn how to effectively work on code together with their fellow students, at the same time. We will be using GitHub desktop to explore the basics of GIT during the training. During the training you will learn the following skills: 1. Creating and sharing a repository 2. Pulling and pushing code 3. Creating and merging branches The training takes places online from 19:30 until 20:30 and you will be able to ask further questions until 21:00. The training will be provided by trainer Gert Jan Timmerman from Info Support. Are you interested to hear more about Info Support as a company? Then let us know via the subscription on the GEWIS website. Are there specific things you would like to learn? Send them in via train@gewis.nl! Does this all sounds too simple for you? Then the Advanced GIT Training on March 23rd might be interesting for you!

You can participate in a team of at most 6 people. The challenges can be done from Monday 15th of March until Friday 19th of March. During the Crazy 88 there will be themed daily missions which you have to fulfill within 36 hours. There will also be weekly challenges, which are open for submissions the whole week, and which can be a bit harder to do. You can score points if you fulfill the challenges, and bonuspoints can be received for creativity and doing challenges with your whole team. The Crazy 88 will be a competition, and you can also win some cute prizes if your team ends among the best 3 teams.

    This year has known a tough start. There seems to be no difference between one day and the next. Friends seem further away than ever and all time seems to consist of is working, eating and sleeping. The members of I.V.V have recognized this problem and are here with a solution: a sequel to the widely famous and beloved Keuken with I.V.V! Not only will you get a full night (which only last until 20:30 these days, sadly) of excitement and entertainment, but we will help you broaden your taste palette with some heartwarming new dishes! The theme of this episode will be of a somewhat religious nature: Easter! As Jesus rises from his grave during this holiday, so will Keuken with I.V.V be resurrected on Friday the 12th of March, 2021. The chosen delicacies for this episode also feature an Easter-related theme: rabbit will be the meat of choice. With this rather special animal we will cook three types of dishes: a professionally prepared pasta, a special Lord of the Rings-inspired stupendously satisfying stew, and finally a remarkably rich roasted rabbit. If you, alone or in a group of up to 3 people, wish to cook along with any of these recipes, you have the option to get the rabbit and most of the key ingredients delivered to your home. Please subscribe on the GEWIS website and indicate which recipe you want to cook for how many GEWIS members. If you wish to cook this with/for non-GEWIS members, please contact us separately, because this will include additional costs. The costs for a GEWIS member are 7 euros. If many people join and money is left over, participants will get some of this money back, depending on the surplus. Only 15 groups can participate, so be sure to subscribe quickly before the spots run out! Because we need to order the rabbit quite early, the subscription list already closes on Sunday March 7, at 23:59. We hope to see you in chat on twitch.tv/hetdispuut on Friday March 12 at 17:00!

    These days, all we do is dream of going outside freely. Well, guess what! FYS is now organizing an online activity involving exactly this; dreaming of living in a fictional pandemic-free world. Although there might not be such a thing as COVID-19, this fictional world is haunted by werewolves. The game itself goes by many names and the chance is slim you have yet to encounter some form of it. Some may know it as “Town of Salem”, although most people who grew up in the Netherlands will have it ingrained as “Weerwolven van Wakkerdam”. On the dreary evening of Thursday March the 11th we will try to get rid of these werewolves once and for all. The game will be set-up on the GEWIScord and we as FYS will guide you all through the process. Please note that in this activity interaction and conviction are key, so having a working camera really helps. Hence make sure you camera is working and you can look the wolves into their eyes during the daytime. Undoubtedly, it will be a fun evening and we hope to see you there!

    Presenting, one of the academic skills. The one that becomes quite different in an online setting. Due to Corona, most of us have all been confronted with this, especially Bachelor students with their BFP and Master students with their final project. You get less nervous because you don't see that much eyes in your direction and you're in your own room. But how do you make sure that every listener keeps paying attention? Or that there is still some interaction? You'll learn this and much more in the Online Presenting training organized by TRAIN and SkillsLab!

    Kickstarting Your Azure Pipeline with Templates Wouter Ligtenberg, a GEWIS alumnus, will talk on behalf of ING! Azure pipeline templates are a powerful way of scaling your CI/CD pipelines throughout your organization. When combining it with software engineering practices it becomes a powerful tool in speeding up the build and release work done by DevOps teams. Templates facilitate the creation of scalable, parameterized pipelines that can be unit tested and ensure pipeline immutability while remaining a consistent and transparent single source of truth. The ING DevOps engineering team has created a way to build and deploy JVM applications in the cloud to be consumed by multiple teams from the entire tribe and more by using templates developed in Azure DevOps with the goal to automate a pipeline end to end, from code to runtime. To achieve this, they wrote code to automate everything and also created a system to manage these pipelines. Some other objectives they set for themselves were: maintenance of the pipeline must be low the pipeline must have a versioning in place as to not break consumers pipelines when we update it it must be flexible, for different languages and applications any of their colleagues should be able to contribute, using an open source model In this talk, you'll learn: How Azure pipeline templates can scale your CI/CD pipelines organization-wide How Azure pipeline templates can help speed up your DevOps team's build and release cycle How ING are utilizing and managing their DevOps pipelines You can join the Teams meeting through this link.

    You can enroll for the masterclass here! The world is confronted with the coronavirus for over a year. In response, we faced measures that drastically curtail our freedoms for months. The consequences are noticeable in many areas. Last but not least, the effects of this put pressure on our (psychological) well-being. You may also recognize this. For example, you can suffer from feelings of loneliness, less (study) motivation, and concentration. Perhaps you are worried about your health or that of others, and you are sleeping less well, feel uncertain about the (near) future, worried about your studies, or experience feelings of sadness and tension. If you recognize these kinds of feelings, Pattern, GEWIS and the academic advisors encourage you to attend the Masterclass "Support your Well-being in times of Covid-19"! This masterclass examines insights, strategies, and tips that can help you support your well-being during this exceptional situation with which we all are being confronted. The masterclass is online and is offered twice for M&CS-students. You can register yourself via this form; you will receive a link via email to join shortly before the masterclass. Please also let us know via the registration form if you would like to attend a masterclass, but you are not available on the offered timeslots.

    Compilers are often seen as black boxes which perform magic. For his graduation-project at Prodrive, “Compiling Motion Control Algorithms for Domain Specific Computer Architectures”, Simon is developing a compiler using LLVM. He will take you on a tour through the scary world of compilers. In the end you may find that, even though compilers are complex, they also do a lot of cute stuff like subgraph isomorphism and graph coloring. If you end up writing your own compiler at home, no worries, that is normal behavior. Curious for more? Then register yourself for the GEWIS lunch lecture on February 23nd 2021. Note that we can not guarantee at this moment that we can host this lecture on campus. For the on campus lecture that are only 30 spots available, for which a draw will be held.

    This workshop will be in Dutch **What is the role of Achmea - the largest insurance company in the Netherlands - in the fight against loneliness among young people? An elderly person living in a nursing home behind a window. The stereotypical image that often comes to mind when talking about loneliness. Experts are sounding the alarm, however: it is precisely many young people who are feeling lonely more and more frequently: almost 10% of young people feel chronically lonely! The loneliness virus is even deadly; it is as harmful as obesity and comparable to the harmfulness of smoking. During the corona crisis, loneliness among young people has become even more visible. Perhaps you ever feel lonely or knew someone close to you who feels lonely? As Achmea, we want to help in the fight against loneliness among young people and adapt our services accordingly. We challenge you to help us and experience how you can make a real impact from an organization that is at the heart of society. Are you interested in IT, are you a creative thinker and would you like to brainstorm with us about how an IT solution can reduce loneliness among young people? Then we would like to see you at our workshop!

    TL;DR: GEPWNAGE ELAN from Monday February 15th till Sunday February 21st. Subscribe to receive an ELAN Survival Package incl. limited edition ELAN shirt and a GEPWNAGE beer glass! If you do want to join the ELAN, but don't want an ELAN Survival Package, you don't have to subscribe to this activity It's that time of the year where we from GEPWNAGE would organize our yearly LAN party. However, Corona is still preventing everyone to game, eat pizza, and enjoy a drink together in one big room. That's why we'll be organizing an Extremely Large Area Network (ELAN) party during the Carnival holiday. We kick off the ELAN party on Monday February 15th and we'll game together till Sunday February 21st. To make sure everyone will get the authentic LAN experience, the first 70 subscriptions will receive a special ELAN survival package filled with drinks, food, a limited edition ELAN shirt and a GEPWNAGE beer glass (vaasje). You can subscribe via the GEWIS website from Monday February 1st 13:00h, where you can also indicate your preferred shirt size and whether you prefer energy drink or soda. We ask only a small contribution of 2 Euros, and in case we have more then 70 subscriptions within the fist 24 hours, we'll randomly draw recipients of the ELAN survival packages. The subscription list closes on Monday February 8th 23:00h. Once it closes you can still join the ELAN, but you cannot receive a ELAN Survival Package anymore. During the ELAN we'll have dedicated servers for several multi-player games, as well as daily Twitch live streams. Our ELAN discord server will be open to everyone to use to chat and use for multi-player games. Long story short, it's going to be an amazing and unforgettable week. Twitch: twitch.tv/GEPWNAGE

You can at any moment move for a second to another group to talk with them and enjoy the activity with the people you would like to celebrate Carnaval with! In your bag will be some happy alcoholic or non-alcoholic surprises, depending on your preference. Each pub will have its own drink and it will be a surprise everywhere :D! This leaves you to choose which type of 'stroptas' (bag) you would like!: Alcoholic Beverages (€11,11 per bag): Blue StropTas: Is a bit of the stronger package of the two when it comes to the craft beers (4 pieces). In total 8 beverages are included and a snack. Orange StropTas: Is a bit of the lighter package of the two when it comes to the craft beers (4 pieces). In total 8 beverages are included and a snack. Non-Alcoholic Beverages (€5,11 per bag): Red StropTas: contains 4 alcohol free (craft) beers and a snack. Of course, there is the possibility of taking the "MegaTas" (MegaBag), which contains both the Blue StropTas ánd the Orange StropTas! (costs for this therefore €22,22). After Subscription, we will let you know where and when you can take away your StropTas. Note that this will be in Eindhoven! The take-away moments will be on Friday (12 Feb) and Saturday (13 Feb). A small but hopefully unnecessary note: If you have subscribed, you agree to the payment of the order. Please do not unsubscribe after subscription :).

    Dear members, During a week (or a long weekend) of celebrating carnival having a snack once in a while is almost obligatory. You can of course enjoy a ‘kapsalon’ or a ‘broodje bal’, but one of the most (in)famous snacks is a ‘worstenbroodje’ (not to be confused with a ‘frikandelbroodje’). Literally translated to ‘sausage bread’, it’s exactly what you expect and now you have the change to make these yourselves! On Saturday the 13th of February, GELIMBO hosts an online baking workshop with expert cooks to guide you through the process. All you have to do are the groceries, for which we will provide a shopping list. There will also be a vega(n) alternative available. The activity starts at 14:11, so you’ll have plenty of time to recover from an optional hangover. We hope to see all of you on the 13th! The workshop will be held in the GEWIScord. Ingredient list for 8 worstenbroodjes with meat Ingredient list for 12 vegan worstenbroodjes If you are on a vegetarian diet, you can also decide to make the dough from the first recipe (contains milk) and make the filling with the ingredients from the second recipe. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us via gelimbo@gewis.nl. Greetings, GELIMBO

    Dear GEWIS members, When GEBINGO at Thursday night is finished, we will all go to bed at some point after a night full of (responsible) festivities. And what can we expect from the morning after on Friday? Exactly, a well put together hangover breakfast! This usual hangover breakfast cannot be forgotten of course. So do your shopping, we will make a list, which can be found here (something different is also okay of course), and join GELIMBO starting 08:11 in the GEWIScord for an online hangover breakfast. For everyone who has to work; hopefully you have obtained enough energy for the day by then. For everyone who has a day off; keep hanging around! Then we will wake up easily and talk about the night before. We hope to see you at Friday morning the 12th of February in the GEWIScord!! With Southern hugs, GELIMBO

    Dear members, In times without lockdown and COVID, the 11th of February 2021 would have been the day where we kick off the carnival week with an amazing borrel. This year, there will be no carnival unfortunately. But do not worry, GELIMBO will not pass on the opportunity to celebrate something on the 11th of the month. We will not kick off the carnival week, but we will kick off our four days of fun activities. And what better way to do this than with an (online) borrel? To give you something more to do than just borrel from home, we will also include a BINGO (or actually we will be playing kien, like Limburgians do), where you can win fun prizes! Once you subscribe for the activity, you will get an email with your kien-card and an optional shopping list with some things that our hosts will be consuming during the evening, so you can join them if you want! We also encourage you to make the experience more fun for yourself, for example by putting shots on a few numbers on your card ;) and by meeting with your friends in a seperate Discord call. One last important thing: Even though we do not celebrate carnival, we will not let 2021 go by without dressing up. So put on your craziest carnival outfit! You will actually get an extra kien-card if you do this! :) Southern hugs, GELIMBO

We will explain to you how we used math to make the world a cleaner place. Although the lecture will be online, it will contain an interactive element. So please, don’t forget to put on your pants. GEWIS alumni Kevin ten Braak and Ruben Kwant both started their careers at Sioux Technologies, where they put their mathematical knowledge into practice via solving challenging technical problems at the Mathware Competence Centre.

    At the previous GMM (GMM178 at 07-12-2020), the board presented a proposal regarding a revision of the GEWIS Membership types. Revising and updating the membership types is one of the multi-annual strategic vision goals of GEWIS. We have gained a lot of feedback at this GMM, which will all be implemented soon. The goal of this meeting is to have a critical look at the updated document and to make it as watertight as possible. During the meeting we will also discuss the following steps to take regarding implementing it. Because these changes will be rather impactful, it is important that everyone's voice will be heard. Every member of GEWIS is therefore invited to join this meeting to give their opinion on the proposal, so we can finalize it at the upcoming GMM.

    The last week Garry's mod was featured in the GEWIS Arcade spotlight. A new week has started, which means that it is time for a new game in the GEWIS Arcade! This week, we will be playing Factorio! Factorio is a game in which you build and maintain factories. You will be mining resources, researching technologies, building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies. As you work your way up to building a rocket to launch to space, many local creatures will be troubled by your ever-increasing pollution of the environment, but the Factory must grow. Unfortunately, Factorio is not free, but it's well worth the price if you like automating processes! You can buy and download the game from Steam on this page. To join the game, simply visit arcade.gewis.nl and follow the instructions there. If you have any questions or suggestions about this game or for the upcoming weeks, feel free to contact Koen, Wouter or Roy from the board. We hope to see you all there!

    Hi all! To have a fun study-break during the week for the exams, ATHENA organises a nice activity on the 6th of January for you to join from the comfort of your own home and it is also for free! We combined music with the game for young and old: BINGO! Because you need to recognize which song is 'playing' for you to get BINGO, you can work together with max 3 friends (from a safe distance ofcourse!). We will have four themed rounds of bingo, so if you did not win the first round, you can try your luck again next round! Hints to the themes and 'play'-style can be found on our poster or our Instagram. There will also be a promo video in the week before the holiday, where you can win an extra card to increase your chances. Subscribe before the 5th of January 2021 23.59 with your team to win prizes and yell BINGO! PS. getting a false bingo will be punished accordingly, like in a real game of bingo.

    At the moment GEWIS has a lot of physical archives in Het Voorraadhok. The board thinks that the archives can be purposed more effectively and noticed that the physical archives are barely touched. Therefore, we want to look into digitalizing old documents and possibly getting rid of documents that do not have any historical value or use. During this brainstorm, we will discuss the different categories of documents and try to decide on a procedure for digitalizing documents and removal. Please contact vz@gewis.nl for any questions or remarks.

    The last two weeks we have been playing Minecraft constantly, so it is time for something new. Luckily, a new week has started, which means that it is time for a new game in the GEWIS Arcade! This week, we will be playing Garry's Mod! Garry's Mod is a sandbox game in which the community builds their own games. Many, many, many gamemodes exist, but to keep things light and easy, we are going to play the legendary Prop Hunt (some form of Hide and Seek) and Trouble In Terrorist Town (Among Us, The Werewolves of Millers Hollow, etc)! These games are really fun to play with friends, so make sure you use the GEWIScord Discord server well! Unfortunately, Garry's Mod is not free, but luckily it is not expensive either. You can buy and download the game from Steam on this page. To join the game, simply visit arcade.gewis.nl and follow the instructions there. If you have any questions or suggestions about this game or for the upcoming weeks, feel free to contact Koen, Wouter or Roy from the board. We hope to see you all there!

Would you also like to take a GEWIS mug out of the room to enjoy the delicious coffee from GEWIS in the lecture halls? We all know it is not allowed to take the ceramic GEWIS mugs outside the GEWIS room. And paper cups are just not the same, and there should be more sustainable options, right? When we looked at more sustainable options, we came across these really cool collapsible mugs. They are compact to carry around, and they allow for your drink to cool a little bit such that you won't burn your tongue when sipping your coffee or tea. The cups can carry up to 350ml. Furthermore they are leak-proof, dishwasher safe and BPA-free. If you would like to see all features, please look here .

    Now that we are all sitting at home during the Christmas break, boredom is always around the corner. Luckily, the GEWIS Arcade is still running in all its glory! Therefore, the board announces the next GEWIS Arcade game for the entirety of the Christmas break: Minecraft! We assume everyone already knows the game. If you don't, you have been living under a rock. But we are not the worst, so let us quickly explain the game. Minecraft is a sandbox video game in which your imagination is the limit. Explore the world, build the most amazing things and interact with all the other players on the server! With more than 200,000,000 copies sold, it is the best-selling video game of all time. We are running a "normal" survival server on the Hard difficulty. This means that the game is easily accessible for everyone (e.g. no mods) and everyone has the freedom to play the game in their own way! We also installed some datapacks to create that little bit of extra fun. We won't spoil what it is, so you will have to find out yourself. To play on the GEWIS Arcade Minecraft server, you need to have bought the game (aka cracked versions will not work, shame on you!). To join the server, simply add arcade.gewis.nl to your server list and join the server! To join the server however, you have to be whitelisted. You can whitelist yourself by going to arcade.gewis.nl. If you have any questions or suggestions about this game or for the upcoming weeks, feel free to contact Koen, Wouter or Roy from the board. We hope to see you all there!

    "Brrrr! The weather is nothing to write home about during these times of the year. I wouldn't want to think about having a social drink outside in this weather. No amount of mulled wine can heat me enough to overcome this coolness!" Are these the thoughts that you, quite rightly, are also having just like us? Then there is some great news for you! In this time of cold weather, of course, the only thing one desires is to gather around a fireplace with balls in the tree. Unfortunately, this is also prevented by the measures taken to keep us safe from the big C. Fortunately, these are not the only balls that come out to warm you, because the balls of I.V.V are very busy preparing a new Keuken with I.V.V! This time it will be a true Christmas edition of the already successful concept. If you are not yet familiar with this, it's as follows: you will open the website https://www.twitch.tv/hetdispuut on Wednesday December 16th at 5 o'clock and there Hèt Dispuut will make a delicious meal in clear and slow steps that can be followed live at home in your own kitchen. This edition a special Christmas dinner will be made to positively surprise your friends and family a week later with the unexpected arts that we will demonstrate to you. The exact list of ingredients for the lamb rack that will be made, including side dishes, will be on the GEWIS website next Monday at the latest. In case you are so warmed up by this prospect and can't wait until next Wednesday, we have a sneak preview for you of the various hilarities that happened in the previous stream. Enjoy! But enjoy (online) with buddies! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zneMX6t_Vfc ADDITION: Dear Cooking Enthusiasts, It's like summer around this Christmas. No, not really, but what we do have in common with Australia is that the world is upside down right now. And it's also quite warm for the time of year, so we don't have to expect a white Christmas either, unless you mistakenly bought powdered sugar and/or flour for the Keuken session, because they are not going to be used. Anyway, I'm wandering off, the world is upside down. Our great friend in "Het Torentje", Mr. Rutte, gave a speech earlier this evening in which he told the country that, among other things, we are no longer allowed to travel far and in which it was also told that the capacity for the number of people that a person is allowed to have visit their home is decreasing from three to two, along with the urgent advice not to visit at all. Being the good guys that Dispuut "In Vino Veritas" is means that we will not ignore the advices of our faithful right-wing friend. They often say that all good things come to an end, so now to me the nice announcement that Keuken with I.V.V part III: Christmas edition will end a lot later than expected. Unfortunately it will also start a lot later than expected, since Hèt Dispuut does not see any possibility to carry out the activity in such a way that the measures, we are going on a culinary journey after all, will be respected and the quality of the spectacle that it is, of course, guaranteed will remain. However, I will have to give you a follow-up date for this banging activity in the future, as it is also entirely dependent on measures to be taken in the near future. But remember: after the rain comes sunshine again. And to let that sunshine shine in your face for a while, you can always click one of the following links. After all, the following also holds for the previous two sessions: luckily we still have the images! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuSnOuGZLlM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zneMX6t_Vfc Lots of viewing pleasure and farewell! On behalf of Dispuut "In Vino Veritas", Bouke Bosma Praeses der Dispuut "In Vino Veritas" P.S.: Don't forget to drink!

    TL;DR: subscribe and receive a Christmas-card-making-kit for free! Christmas card making session December 15. The days are getting colder, the nights longer… ‘T is the season of Christmas lights, hot cocoa, and “gezelligheid”. But how to spread the gezelligheid when you can’t really get together? Without the big social gatherings of for example cosy Christmas markets, it may be difficult for some people to get into the Christmas mood. Luckily, one way of spreading the Christmas spirit remains, no matter how big the social distance: sending Christmas cards! Therefore, we decided to compose special Christmas kits to help you spread some Christmas spirit. Each kit will contain two blank cards (1 red and 1 green), 2 matching envelopes, and all the glittery red-green-gold stuff you might need to create two beautiful Christmas cards. (NB: it does not contain glue. If you don’t have any glue and are too poor to buy some, we suggest using a sticky alternative like peanut butter, jam, or any left-over (GEWIS) stickers.) You can receive one of these kits for free. There are two ways to receive a kit: Delivery (free inside Eindhoven, for addresses outside Eindhoven you’ll have to pay for the shipping). Picking them up somewhere in Eindhoven. After the subscription deadline, we will send you an email with the details regarding the delivery or pick-up. If you choose delivery, a kit will be delivered to your home before December 15. On December 15th, we will get together in the GEWIS Discord to add some gezelligheid to the creative process. See you then! FESTIVITEIT

    💜💜💜 Dear members, Every year on the second Friday of December the whole world turns purple. Do you know why? It's Spirit day, also known as purple Friday. This day is annual LGBTQ+ awareness day. To this day people from the LQBTQ+ community still have to deal with bullying and violence and suicide is way more common in this community. To let everyone know that this is not okay and that we support the LGBTQ+ community we celebrate purple Friday. This year on the 11th of December, Défi will make sure the GEWIS room is decorated accordingly. If you are at the TU/e already, you may want to drop by GEWIS during the break and get a little snack. We are handing out a little snack to every member wearing purple (if the room capacity allows it!). Furthermore we will have a small online competition, in which we ask everyone to share their Purple Friday celebration with Défi. We will post about this on our Instagram and we will announce the winners there as well. You can send a picture of your Purple Friday celebration to defi@gewis.nl or tag @dispuutdefi on Instagram. Please join Défi in dressing purple to show your support for the LGTBQ+ community! We wish you a very purple Friday! Love, Défi 💜💜💜

    Experience now a brand-new concept of online escape rooms: The Hunting Hour! Something very valuable is stolen from you. Together with your team you will try to catch the thief and retrieve what is yours. Evidence of the theft has been collected, divided and sent to the home address of each team member. During the evening of December 8, 9 or 10 your team will have an online crisis meeting where teamwork is more important than ever! Inspect the evidence, find clues and hunt the thief. You have one hour. Good luck. The Hunting Hour is a unique, creative and thrilling experience by GELIMBO and DSW. You will receive a package at your home address that you will need for solving different mysteries throughout the process of finding the thief that stole one of your most precious possessions. Each team must consist of 4 to 6 members. We encourage you to try filling your team to exactly 6 people for the ultimate experience. Each team must be enrolled once (so do not enroll per person). Upon closing of this subscription list, we will raffle among the enrolled teams. 20 teams can participate in this activity. When your team is selected to be one of the teams that can participate in The Hunting Hour, GELIMBO will reach out to the main responsible of the team (the person who enrolled the team) to ask the following from each team member: - A Dutch postal address (for sending the package of evidence) - A picture of the team member (passport photograph dimensions: ~148 pixels (width) x ~184 pixels (height)). The picture is optional, but highly recommended. There are three evenings (December 8, 9 and 10) when this activity takes place. Each team will obtain a slot on one of these dates. We kindly ask you upon enrollment the availability of your whole team on each of these dates. Starting times on each evening can range from 18:00 to 20:45. When you are selected, we will inform you which slot your team has obtained to start The Hunting Hour. Can't wait? Click here to reveal some of the evidence we have found on the crime scene.

    This week's game has been prolonged until Friday the 17th of December. On Friday, we will bring you a new game! More information soon... We have arrived in the final month of the calender year: December. The days are short, the weather is cold and unfortunatly due you-know-what most people spend a lot of time at home. What is then more fun than playing a little videogame at home? Exactly: playing a little videogame at home with your friends! Luckily, the board is here to help. Starting today until the following weeks, we have opened The GEWIS Arcade! Every week we bring you a (new) game to play with your friends or fellow GEWIS members. This week, we are hosting Team Fortress 2! In Team Fortress 2, you play as either team RED or BLUE and one of 9 different character classes. All these classes provide a different set of abilities, weapons, walking speed, health, looks, etc. This makes the game really accessible fun for everyone. Like Wouter just said: "easy to get into, hard to master". You can download the game for free from Steam. You can join the server by visiting arcade.gewis.nl or by joining the server directly on the same server address. We also have set up some voice channel on the GEWIScord, so you communication will not be a problem during the game. If you have any questions or suggestions for the upcoming weeks, feel free to contact Koen or Roy from the board. We hope to see you all there!

Furthermore they are leak-proof, dishwasher safe and BPA-free. If you would like to see all features, please look here .

    Hey everyone! As most of you may know, GEWIS has a lot of new involved first year students. Understandably so, it's quite hard to get to know people face to face these days. FYS hopes to give GEWIS the opportunity to get to know our new first year students and vice versa. As borrels have not been able to take place in the last few weeks, we're all looking for social interaction, online if need be! Come say hi if you have time! We start at 19:00 and end whenever the last person leaves. The hangout will take place online on the 27th of November in the GEWIScord, channels for the activity can be found in the Activities category. All participants will be emailed a link to join the GEWIScord, alternatively you can just ask a board member to add you. What and if you drink is of course entirely up to you! Subscribing to this activity if you want to be present is optional if you're already a GEWIScord member. Just drop by when it suits you. We hope to see you there!

    Has this partial lockdown made you feel like you're a queen stuck in a castle? Worry no more, because on the 24th of November the AC will start a three-week-long Duo Chess tournament! You will be playing hand and brain chess, so find yourself a chess mate with who you can check mate. The rules in a nutshell: The “brain” calls out a piece (let’s say a pawn) and the “hand” has to decide which pawn to move and where. Of course we will cater to the ROOKies as well as the chess kings, since you have to fill in how much experience you have as a duo (fill in beginner if you do not know much more than the rules or do not play often). You will have to schedule most of the matches yourself, but we will lend a helping hand with planning. Will you deliver checkmate, or is it (k)night (k)night for you? Only one way to find out! If you want to beat your friends, subscribing is the winning strategy! If you have any questions, suggestions, or need to get something off your chesst, you can always contACt us at ac@gewis.nl. Hugs, the AC

    Once again GEWPNAGE is gearing up to get you acquainted with one of our favorite games: Magic the Gathering: Arena! Normally, we would be hosting the event in real life and provide all newcomers with real decks that they get to take home, but that's not in the cards this time. Instead, we'll use the on-line version which has all the same cards, but digital! All you need to do to join is download and install the game beforehand. You can play the tutorial to unlock decks before or during the start of our event. At around 19:00, we will start a tournament for all attendees. During the entire event, you can hang out with us on Discord, where you can chat with your opponents and ask experienced players about tactics and rules. Subscribe and join the discord using the links above, and don't forget to show up! See you there! Ktnxbai, GEPWNAGE

    Sioux Technologies partners with a world-leading industrial microscope company to monitor their products at customer sites in order to unveil the full potential. Raw data from the instruments are analyzed and transformed into meaningful information. This project, aptly called Data to information (short: D2i), aims mainly at service engineers. Their daily responsibilities range from yielding better utilization to scheduling maintenance just in time, all made easier by this project. In this talk, you will get real insights in some project’s challenges, how features are realized and much more. The talk is given by two project members: Niek Ederveen and Nick Kuijpers. Niek is software architect on the D2i project for almost two years now. In this role, he is responsible for the bigger picture and strategic technical decisions. He is specialized in client server solutions and was responsible for some automotive projects in the past, like car tracking. Nick is a software designer working on the D2i project for almost 3 years now. He is combining a technical role with a more process-oriented role, since he also fulfills the Scrum Master role within the team. Are you not available to physically visit the lecture, but do you still want some pizza? We will hold a raffle between all online participants for five Domino's vouchers! If you want to follow the lecture digitally, send an email to roy.c4@gewis.nl. Note that for this lunch lecture that are only 30 spots available. We kindly ask you to be subscribed Thursday before the lecture. If there are more than 30 people interested, there will be a draw. You will be informed about your participation, the lecture and all corona measures Friday before the lecture takes place.

    Dear members of GEWIS, As you have probably noticed, the days are getting colder and shorter, making the atmosphere cosier than it has been in a long time. Sadly, it is not allowed anymore to invite over some friends at your own home due to the measures that have been laid upon us by the government. Think of that what you want, but the second wave of COVID-19 is preventing us from social interaction with each other more than we like. Luckily, there is a solution to all this. Fraternity "In Vino Veritas" will not only organise an evening activity full of the decadency and cosiness that you are used to, but will also give you the chance to train your taste buds by letting waves of different high-quality, professionally selected wines roll over your tongue. In addition, Mgr. Sanders, whom is in possession of a certificate in wine tasting, will be present at the event which will take place on October 19th to give you a master class in the art of tasting. Subscribing can be done here. Make sure to be quick, since there are only a limited number of spots available. Mind that the subscription list will be closed one week before the activity (Monday October 12th) to guarantee a fitting amount of quality wine for everyone. We hope to see you all there!

    Ever wanted to play a Tabletop role-playing game like Dungeons&Dragons or Pathfinder? Ever thought your board games needed a hint of improv theatre? We didn't either, until we tried it! Friday October 16th GEPWNAGE organizes an RPG night accessible to veterans and new players alike. For this activity we'll have a hoard of Game Masters ready to run an adventure playable in one night. We'll be playing online and using a simple system to make sure you'll go from zero to hero(ish) in the blink of an eye! The only thing you'll need is a computer with a webcam and a microphone, and optionally some of your favorite snacks and drinks. Ready to fight monsters and slay queens? Register now! You can register with a group up to 4 people. We will merge groups if needed for the activity. We have a maximum capacity of 25 participants (this may increase if we find more GMs). If there are more than 25 participants before the 5th of October 13:00, we will use random.org to randomly select who can join the activity. We will take groups into account as one to join the activity. tl;dr: Date: 2020-10-09 19:00-23:00 System: Dungeon World Format: Online (Discord + Web) Discord link: discord.gg/8mJwkg

    Hey there first year students! The last few weeks have been very busy but hopefully you are getting adjusted to the pace of university life. All this hard work also comes with a lot of stress.

Together with the BAC (BAr Committee) we present to you, the First Year's cHAT Borrel (Sjaarzen Borrel), especially for first year students! As the name suggests, be sure to bring a hat (or silly attribute if you really don't have a hat). Not only will you be borreling with style, it might also be a nice conversation starter! Come join us on the 9th of October in the Markthal from 16:30 - 20:00, if the subscriptions exceed the capacity there will be a draw. We all know that COVID-19 has made it a bit harder to see your fellow first year students and to get to know them better. Not to worry though! This borrel you will have the chance to meet some new fellow members within GEWIS and have a drink with them. If you're looking for company (or are just thirsty for a drink) then go ahead and subscribe to experience this evening full of laughs and new friends! If you'd like you can even subscribe with a buddy, we'll try our best to have you placed at the same table (Only one of you has to subscribe for the activity, just add the other person's first and last name in the extra field). We hope to see you all at the borrel! First Year Support

    Dear members, Chances are you’ve heard of SSG (Stichting Studiereizen GEWIS) once or twice before. If you haven’t not to worry! SSG is a foundation consisting of- and made for GEWIS members. Every two years a new committee is formed to organize a study trip. In close cooperation with GEWIS, SSG oversees the progress of the organization of the study trip organized by this committee. As the title suggests, we are currently looking for new members to come join our efforts. You do not have to be very experienced in the field of committee work or study trips at all to join SSG, as it is also a great opportunity to learn a lot as an advisory entity. Together with the other SSG members you will be keeping track of progress updates provided by the travel committee during meetings that take place once every two weeks. So come join us during our information lunch October the 7th between 12.40 and 13.15 on discord (https://discord.gg/CmKgs78). This is a great opportunity to get some valuable experience in the field of organisation and overseeing, especially during these challenging times. We hope to see you there!

    IOTA, the better version of Blockchain and the Ledger of Everything! In 2009, Bitcoin released its blockchain infrastructure and promised to become a global decentralized system that could be used by anyone without the need for intermediaries. Now, more than 10 years later it has become apparent (high fee’s, slow transaction times and poor scalability) that blockchains mathematical model isn’t suited to become a worldwide payment system. However, the next generation of Distributed Ledger Technology is now here and it’s called IOTA! This protocol is designed from the ground up to power the Machine economy through feeless micro-transactions and data integrity utilizing a mathematical principle, called Directed-Acyclic-Graph (DAG). It is this concept that allows IOTA to outperform blockchain in every way and established a network dubbed the ‘‘Tangle’’ It is expected that this technology will become the very backbone for the Internet of Things and power the internet of tomorrow! Curious how this works? Come and listen to the presentation! Note that for this lunch lecture that are only 30 spots available. We kindly ask you to be subscribed Thursday before the lecture. If there are more than 30 people interested, there will be a draw. You will be informed about your participation, the lecture and all corona measures Friday before the lecture takes place.

    Are you already bored of all the online lectures? Do you need something to relax before the assignment deadlines? We’ve got a fun activity to keep the ball rolling! Starting on the 5th of October, GEPWNAGE will organize the Chain Reaction. Gather some friends and let all creativity loose, as this is your chance to build a Rube Goldberg machine together! An example machine segment can be seen in the following video: You create a short video showing your segment of the machine in action, which we will gather and combine into a single video showing one long Chain Reaction. So sign up now to keep it rolling! Every team is asked to design and create a segment of the machine. Your segment should fill roughly ten to thirty seconds of video. Each segment will have a fixed start- and endpoint, for which materials will be provided. You will receive an email for scheduling the pick-up of these materials. You can create your segment at home or somewhere else. Make sure to always take the guidelines for social distancing into account when working in a team.

    Trading options as a market maker In this interactive lecture we will take look at the role of market makers and the value of options in the financial landscape. Market makers provide liquidity to financial markets by simultaneously showing prices at which they are willing to buy and sell options, i.e. a two-sided market. While trading options, market makers must manage the risk of these trades as well as their overall portfolio. Trading and risk management go hand in hand in this way. After a broad introduction into financial markets and various instruments, we will discuss the special nature of options and the ways in which their price can be calculated. In this valuation of options, the so-called “implied volatility” plays a crucial role. For market makers this implied volatility and its behavior is the most interesting and challenging factor. We will discuss why! Note that for this lunch lecture that are only 30 spots available. We kindly ask you to be subscribed Thursday before the lecture. If there are more than 30 people interested, there will be a draw. You will be informed about your participation, the lecture and all corona measures Friday before the lecture takes place.

    Dear members, Much like previous years the “Weet Ik Veel” recruitment team has sent us another invitation to join their wonderful show, this is a Dutch (unfortunately also exclusively spoken in Dutch) game show where students will be tested on their general knowledge and the winner will receive a large sum of money! Sadly we will not have as large of a capacity this year due to corona, so we’ll be visiting there twice in 2 separate days. This year "Weet ik veel" is recorded in Studio 24 in Mediapark Hilversum (Sumatralaan, 1217 GP). We have chosen for the afternoon recordings, which means we have to be present from 14:00 until 17.45. The two available dates are Saturday the 26th of September and Wednesday the 30th of September. When subscribing please indicate which of the two days you would like to subscribe for. Both activities will be facilitated by (at least) one board member, meaning that we can only take 9 members to the recordings on each of the days respectively. If there’s more subscriptions than the capacity allows for there will be a draw. Please subscribe before the 8th of September!

    As you all know, instead of the usual MomenTUm party, this year we will celebrate MomenTUm through a livestream. In this livestream, we focus on congratulating and entertaining all graduates through different items, including an interactive quiz, surprise elements, giveaways, and an afterparty with performances of student bands and DJ’s. Next to the graduates, we also want all other TU/e students to be able to celebrate MomenTUm this year, as they do every year. Our goal is to encourage as many graduates and students to watch the livestream and have a celebratory day (that afternoon is also education free). Therefore, the board organizes a MomenTUm viewing party in the GEWIS room! There is currently a capacity of 15 people. However, on high demand, we will book some extra rooms, so we can all watch the stream together!

    Rust is a language introduced in 2015 by Mozilla to build reliable and efficient software. It has since then gained a lot of popularity: Used by all GAFAMs, and voted “most loved programming language” 5 years in a row on the Stack Overflow Developer Survey! It tries to solve problems that other system programing languages, mainly as C and C++, have been struggling with for a long time, such as memory errors and building concurrent programs. During this talk, I'll show you what makes Rust a great language, but also what makes it no so great. Note that for this lunch lecture that are only 30 spots available.

    Did you ever try to go to sporting on a Thursday, then just go to the borrel and ended up feeling kind of guilty? For all almost-fit-girls, Défi has the perfect activity: Gin Tonic Yoga. Do we need to say more? We will provide an interesting yoga routine that is accessible for all skill levels. We will start at 18:00 with pouring everyone a nice gin tonic, after which we will go into two yoga sessions of 20 minutes with a little break in between. Afterwards, you can enjoy your gin tonics while talking to your friends about how good you feel because you just sported! This activity takes place on the Fluxfield in front of Gemini. You can bring your own yoga mat, or you can subscribe for one such that Défi gets you one for only an additional 3 euros!

    The BAC is back again with a wonderful borrel this Thursday in collaboration with B.O.O.M.! This week was supposed to be the B.O.O.M. lustrum week since they will receive their 15th annual ring this Saturday. Unfortunately, a 3rd lustrum offers no magical protection against COVID-19 and most activities have been postponed to celebrate a sweet-16 next year. But to not let the lustrum go by undetected we will have a B.O.O.M. themed borrel this week, where they will provide you with a nice surprise, because “wie jarig is trakteert”! When there are more subscribers than the maximum amount of participants before the subscription deadline, there will be a draw. You can register per table, so indicate who you want to sit with. Please keep in mind that there is a limited amount of spots, so only make a reservation if you can be there the whole time!

    Are you really good at coming up with plausible lies? Or are you more of a Sherlock at detecting them? On the 15th of September, the AC presents to you the AC jACkbox tournament. From 20:00 to 22:30, we will be playing three different online partygames from the jACkbox partypACk: fibbage, quiplash and drawful. These are games where you will battle against 7 other players every round and test not only your lying and drawing CApabilities, but also the ability to come up with funny or ridiculous answers. The ACtivity is free and will take place online using Discord. It is a tournament with a prize for the winner, but don't worry if you have never played these games before, because they are all very easy to learn. See you then! Hugs, the AC

    On September 19, the beautiful fraternity B.O.O.M. received her 15th annual ring. We had a whole week full of fun activities planned for you to celebrate this special milestone with us. Unfortunately, a 3rd lustrum offers no magical protection against COVID-19 and we have had to decide to cut back on the festive celebration this year and celebrate our sweet-16 next year. To get you out of those student rooms for a while and to offer you some entertainment, the 2nd edition of the popular outdoor cinema will take place on Monday September 14. We do not yet reveal which 2 films will be shown, but the films will undoubtedly bring a funny and not-so-serious atmosphere. Of course a cinema is not a cinema without (free) popcorn! And to complete the evening, our beloved bar committee will accompany us during the activity to serve some (alcoholic) beverages! There are 16 spots on benches, but if you want to sit comfortably during the movies, we recommend that you bring your own (camping)seat. This way those camping chairs still come in handy this year! (The total capacity for the activity is 40.) The exact location fo the activity will follow shortly!

    Dear upcoming GEWISsers, Usually, the intro committee organizes an awesome FLUP weekend in the second weekend of the new study year. This is a follow up weekend to the introduction week, where you can get to know GEWIS and most of their active members, by doing al sorts of activities with them. Sadly, due to the corona-virus, we cannot do that this year. However we are able to organize a FLUP day! On this day, we hope to introduce to you the new GEWIS board, the fraternities, and the old FYC’s by letting you do small activities organized by them. In small groups, you will be guided to various locations in Eindhoven by a buddy from GEWIS. At the end of the day, you can join us for a barbeque on campus, where you can get to know the people from the other groups as well. This activity is meant for the new students and is planned on the 12th of September. This day only costs 3 euros. It would be convenient if you have a bike in Eindhoven. The barbeque will be at the Flux field. Hugs, Intro20 Due to new rules from the university, we have closed registrations for the FLUP activity. Would you still like to participate? Mail to intro20@gewis.nl and we will look into what is possible.

    Dear GEWISsers, As you might already know, due to the corona-virus, we are not organizing a FLUP weekend this year. However, a FLUP-day will be held! For this amazing activity, we need some enthusiastic people who would like to become a cycling buddy. Grab your closest friend and bicycle and reserve the 12th of September in your agendas. The FLUP-day will cost you three euros per person since we will end the day with a delicious barbeque. Only one of you will have to subscribe, as long as they mention who their partner will be. If there are too many cycling buddies, couples who also were intro-parents will have priority. We hope you are just as excited as we are! Hugs, Intro20

    On the 5th of September the Dutch television show [Wie is de Mol](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wie_is_de_Mol%3F_(Dutch_TV_series) starts its anniversary season and because the GEMOLD committee was not able to make episodes of our own show we organise a competition to see who is the best in finding the Mole. Every week after the episode we will send a short survey with questions about the Mole and you have until the start of the next episode to answer them. After 8 weeks we will see who is the winner! The TV-show is in Dutch, but English subbed episodes usually arrive pretty fast somewhere on the internet. So if your Dutch is no good but you are interested and still want to join that should be possible and we will try to accommodate for that. Participation is free and there is an awesome prize for the winner.

    If you're subscribed you will have received an e-mail with additional information, please send an e-mail to cib@gewis.nl if you cannot find this information! Hello fellow Computer Science and Mathematics students, It’s almost the start of a new school year and after this long holiday it’s time to get back out there and socialize! We, the members of the FYS (First Year Support) committee, have therefore planned a fantastic ONLINE activity for you all to enjoy. This activity will take place in the first week of September and it’s called The Great GEWIS Game. The game is simple: Every 10 minutes you and your team, with whom you’ll be video calling, will get handed over a theme which will then need to be portrayed using the objects in your rooms. The teams will consist of 8-9 team members, however you can only sign up with at most 2 other people so that our new members can try and get acquainted with the more “experienced” members within GEWIS. If this doesn’t sound like an exciting chance to meet new people then we don’t know what is! So do subscribe to the first activity that has ever been planned by the FYS committee. We hope to see you in the discord server! The subscription of first year students will be shared with the department for extra support

    Students who want to work on solving complex problems in a challenging, competitive, and innovative environment and who want to achieve a leading position in R&D (basic research, applied research, and experimental development) or technological innovation, should consider accelerating their career by continuing their professional development by means of a PhD degree program or a PDEng (Professional Doctorate in Engineering) degree program, in close collaboration with industry. PDEng degree programs exist already since 1986 and the TU/e Department of Mathematics and Computer Science has been offering such degree programs ever since. In this session Harold Weffers will present (i.) the added value of a PhD or PDEng degree program compared to an M.Sc. degree, (ii.) the differences between PhD and PDEng, (iii.) a brief overview of some of the PDEng programs offered by TU/e and (iv.) some more details about the PDEng Software Technology program and some of the projects performed by its trainees. Note that for this lunch lecture that are only 30 spots available. We kindly ask you to be subscribed Thursday before the lecture. If there are more than 30 people interested, there will be a draw. You will be informed about your participation, the lecture and all corona measures Friday before the lecture takes place.

    tldr: ATHENA workout summer challenge and buy a cool GEWIS bidon for only 3 euros! Subscription list opens Wednesday 24th June 12.00h. Hi all! Corona probably did change your life! You are working from home, so you did not have that morning bike ride to the university. Or maybe it became better as you did not have to sit in the overfull train. Do you also miss that little nice walk from building to building at the campus with your study mates? We as ATHENA members found a new daily routine with which we tried to stay productive and healthly. Part of this is our weekly bootcamps (approximately 4 per week), from which you most likely already saw a sneak peak via our Instagram or at a Snapchat you received. During the summer break we want to continue with this, but we are going to include you all in our #fitgirl and #fitboy process. We challenge you to participate in the three week ATHENA work-out, in which we will provide you with 3 work-outs per week of approximately 20 minutes. As not everyone is at the same level, we will make sure that for every level exercises will be provided. As we wanted to keep the threshold of the work-outs as low as possible, we made sure that the only equipment you need is a towel to lie on! If you want to challenge yourself extra, you can always use weights during the exercise, but that is for the die-hards! ;) When you are working out and sweating you need to stay hydrated. So we as ATHENA will launch a GEWIS bidon. You can buy this GEWIS bidon for only 3 euros. There are only 50 bidons available so be fast! The subscription list opens at Wednesday the 24th of June at 12.00h. When there are more than 50 subscriptions in the first 3 hours, there will be drawn. If you do not want to join the amazing workout challenge, it is possible to subscribe for the bidon, but participants will get priority. The pick-up point for the bidon will be at North (Pisanostraat) or Center (Graaf Adolfstraat). The videos will become available at our Instagram and ATHENA website! Hugs ATHENA. You can view the design here! UPDATE: Subscription for the bidons is not possible anymore!

    TL;DR: subscribe as intro parent at rex.gewis.nl before 12th of july. Make sure you are available 15th, 17th -21st of August. Dear GEWISers! As you all know, quartile four has almost ended, which means for us that the planning for the introduction week is in full gear. It will be a very different kind of Intro compared to previous years, but we still need enthusiastic Intro-parents. As an Intro-parent, it will be your task to show the new students what the student life at the TU/e looks like. If you would like to become one, together with a partner of your choice, you will be appointed around ten new students as your “kiddo’s”. You will accompany them during the whole week, which will consist of three online and two offline days. You will be responsible for your group of intro-kids on both the online as well as on the offline days. It will be your goal to create a nice group bond so that every one of them will enjoy the week as much as possible! If you are interested in becoming a parent, please pay attention to the following few points: you have to be available the 15th of August for the “introbegeleiders dag”, where the CIC will give you further information on your schedule and duties as a parent. Attendance is completely mandatory. This means, if you are not present the 15th, you cannot become an intro parent. Furthermore, you obviously have to be available during the introduction week itself, which is from the 17th to the 21st of August. On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday you have to be present online for the online program, while on Wednesday and Friday you will need to be present in person on the campus for the offline activities. Finally, you will be in charge of your group and together with your partner you should ensure that your group members participate in all the activities. If you are as enthusiastic as we are and want to subscribe as a parent immediately, you should go and find a partner and go subscribe at https://rex.gewis.nl! The subscription closes at the 12th of July 23:59h. If there are too many applications, there will be a draw. You will hear the result of that draw at least before the end of July, hopefully sooner. We hope to see you all during the introduction week, whether it is online or in person! Lots of love, Intro20 committee

    Woehoee, the BAC is back with an outside mavo borrel on 2 July! Due to the corona-virus, there are some rules you should follow.

The BAC will bring you your delicious beers (or sodas). You can register per person or with a group of maximum 4. If there are more than 22 people on the registration list before the deadline, which is 1 July at 1 p.m., there will be a draw. A group then has as much chance of being drawn as a single participant.
