On Saturday April 6, we had our annual Accepted Students Day. Parents and prospective students took a tour of the Sandbox and learned all about our cool technologies like our SmartBoard, XBox, and touch-screen PCs. Our projects including an Android To-DO List App, a side-scroller game built in Construct 2, and all sorts of different Java, Excel and Access assignments.
If you missed it feel free to watch our minute long time lapse video of the entire event!
CIS Sandbox hosted an event on Wednesday, April 3 about iOS Application development by Tim Miller, a graduate student at Bentley. Tim’s session covered topics like how to develop iOS applications, what courses are available for learning how to develop these applications, how iOS application development fairs compared to Android application development. Tim provided a demo by developing a mobile navigation software. The event was attended by many Bentley students and was exciting and informative. Here are pictures from the event
The presentation was useful and we are sharing it with you here: There are more exciting events coming up at the CIS Sandbox. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter if you are interested in joining our future events!
Did you know that you can help cure diseases just by letting your computer run while you do other things? Folding@home is a program that lets you make use of your computer’s unused cycles (like when you’re browsing Facebook) to perform protein folding computations that help researchers understand diseases better. By using your idle computer power to complete small work packages, you act as part of a giant research supercomputer!
Check out the the website here to learn more, watch the video, and download.
While Folding@home runs silently in the background, there are also options to dedicate more (or less) resources to folding,
as well as to get specific information about the folding such as your individual project package description, progress, and folding rate.
You can even choose which disease you have a preference for helping with.
There is also an option to watch the live protein folding:
So, give it a try! The next time someone asks why you’re looking at funny pictures of cats, let them know you’re curing disease.
