1) Web Dev 101 - Jobber JUMP Event

WHO: Students who want to learn web dev
WHEN: March 11th from 5:30pm - 8:00pm
WHERE: Jobber HQ - 4th Floor, 10520 Jasper Avenue, RSVP HERE
WHAT: Nowadays web development is a part of almost EVERY industry!
Having a foundational understanding of web development concepts is sought out by employers, and will help you jump in with confidence as you work with or around web developers, or will help you as a web developer to build up your understanding from the ground up. We want to help you make that jump with Web Dev 101.
In this session you'll learn about:

Core concepts of how web applications work (and what happens behind the scenes when you type into the address the bar!).
Tools we use to build web applications (HTML, CSS, Javascript oh my!).
We'll give you access to a demo project that you can use to explore these concepts further.

More information and RSVP can be found here

2) NeuroNexus Design Competition

WHO: Anyone interested hackathons and neuroscience
WHEN: Application Deadline: April 15th
WHERE: Apply Here
WHAT: Neuro Nexus is a hackathon program designed to spark collaboration across disciplines and tackle
complex challenges in brain science and mental health. The program connects experts in frontline,
clinical, and academic practice with motivated, talented students to develop technological solutions
over a fast-paced 6 week competition. This year, Neuro Nexus will facilitate 40+ projects across the
province in our largest competition yet.

3) Leaders Prize Competition

WHO: Anyone interested in Aritificial Intelligence and Hackathons
WHEN: June 19th 2019
WHERE: Here
WHAT: Misinformation is rampant no matter where you look on the internet. Fact checkers and reputable news sources were a sufficient solution to keep well informed in the past, but this wave of fake news challenges that tradition. The Schulich Foundation invites you to tackle this problem with AI. Groups of up to 5 people are tasked with creating an AI that can evaluate the validity of the statement, and if possible, provide evidence. The winning team will claim the $1 milllion prize! This is a great experience to undertake. The competition is far off now, but it definatly worth your consideration!
