Hello, SoDA members!
Our upcoming meeting will be held this Thursday, March 29, 2012 from 6:30p to 9:30p in BYAC 110. Pizza will be provided.
Our guest speaker, Jeremy Wright, professor of the C++ Practicum and professional code writer will be discussing embedded scripting for video games.
We will be presenting in C++, how to use Flex, and Bison to parse a custom command language; Then we’ll show how to add this command interpreter to a basic game. We’ll have a simple SDL graphics layer, and manipulate C++ objects at runtime. It should be very interesting. We’ll post the code after the talk so students can download it, and use it in their own projects. I will be live coding the project (in vim… ).

Hello, everyone! Tomorrow, Wednesday at 7:00PM in BYAC110 and BYAC150 is the big day, the Microsoft hosted Game Night! There will be video games, board games, snacks, and virgin rum and coke’s all around! We’ve heard back from a few members, so far I believe we have a few Xbox 360′s, a few Kinects, a PS3, Nintendo 64 and a few other consoles. If you have any video game consoles, any super awesome board games, TV’s, power splitters, or Laptops, be sure to bring them! Also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any of these supplies, or anything you feel would make this game night that much more awesome, we can assist you with transporting these materials as they may be too heavy to carry on foot.
If you have a resume, bring it!
We will be handing out some awesome T-shirts as well, so be sure to be there!
