We've gone Open Source ❗️

Hello everyone! The CS Club has made this website available to the public and has made it open source! The cs club's website is currently hosted at the url above.

What is Open Source? 🤔

The term open source refers to any program whose source code is made available for use or modification as users or other developers see fit.

What is Github?

Github is a collaboration tool and is used by developers of all skills and experience levels to contribute to developing world-class software. (Ex: React, Bootstrap, Linux, TensorFlow)

Who can contribute?

Anyone can start to contribute to Open Source! Contributing to open source helps developers get hands-on experience to know how to collaborate with other devs across the world.

Where do I begin? 🫣

Anywhere, what matters, is you try it yourself. For beginners, use the Github quickstart guide and will help you get everything set up and introduce you to a lot of things.

Specifically for this project, what do I do?

Run through the following github instructions at least once to understand how to make your first contribution to open source.

  1. Fork the project
  2. Clone the forked project
  3. Checkout a "username/name-of-feature-or-issue" branch off of development
  4. Work on Code! Commit your code and push up to your forked project
  5. Raise a Pull Request and make sure to tag the #issue

CS LAB is finally OPEN!

Hello everyone! We wanted to share a quick announcement. The computer science lab (cs lab-DBH 288) is finally open! For those of you who are new to Stan State, the CS Lab has been the place to hangout. If you run into one of the officers, remember to say hi! 😁
CS Lab operating times:

First blog post of Fall 2022

Hello everyone! Welcome to a brand new semester at Stan State. We are the Computer Science Club! This semester, our focus is community engagement and fostering a healthier community within CS. This brand new page is part of this new initiative. As part of this new initiative, we encourage you to check out every inch of this site, try to break it, and get familiar with it. We are open to feedback and suggestions on what else you want to see on this page. We are working on filling out some resources for you all now. FYI, this page will attempt to reflect a portion of what can be found inside the CS Club Discord Server. If you have not done so, please join our community! As of now, we would've already had our first CS Club Meeting. We will soon make a post on the upcoming dates and announcements. Thank you all! ^_^
