The Recursion 2015 computer science fair is taking place in The Levi Fox Hall at the King Edward Vi School in Church Street on 4 July, 11am – 4pm, and judging by the final exhibition plan released today (click image below for larger version) should be a cracking event – and what’s more, admission is FREE!

Virtual desktops provide the opportunity to run many desktops at the same time from a desktop computer or laptop. Turing was a computer scientist, philosopher and cryptologist who played a crucial role in breaking the Nazi’s Enigma Code.

Computer animation is the art of creating moving images via the use of computers.
After a good 8 months of blood, sweat and tears, REVIVAL Solstice 2016 was held last weekend and what a stormer it was – close to a thousand people descended on Banks’s Stadium over this sunny July end and helped us celebrate a return to proper scale after missing the calendar last year!
