Micro-Talks and Mega Bash. And Werewolves

Some of the prizes for the microtalks

Some of the prizes for the microtalks

We tried a few new things this year for the Christmas Bash. Firstly we had some micro-talks (thanks to Microsoft for the prizes – above)  from students and staff about things they are working on. Danny Brown started with a talk about contributing to Open Source software, then we had talks about app development for Vulcan Bombers, augmented reality that puts meaning into the countryside and why you should all sign up for Hull Global Gamejam next year.

Then we played a game called Werewolf. It was hilarious. If you think that Computer Science Students are all reserved and shy then you should have seen the debate and the way accusations were flying around the room by the end.

Then we had some pizza and mince pies and went off to play Team Fortress, PS4, Xbox One and Wii U games.
