* positions had very passionate candidates, but unfortunately they were unable to make it for the AGM today and will have to run again in the first STMU, during the EGM.
This is a ticketed event.
Lets meet up and make our way to Monzo's event: "Monzo Meetup: Edinburgh Edition".
We'll meet at the Informatics Forum at around 5:15pm, and we'll aim to leave at 5:30ish....
If you do not yet have tickets, you may be able to catch a cancellation on Eventbrite.
Have a great summer, everyone!
Join us on a night out with a big bunch of Utrecht University's Computing Society's students!
We will meet at the Informatics Forum, head to Teviot, and see where the night takes us from there.

Hoppers and CompSoc has joined hands to provide you all with a hub for the Google Hash Code competition!
Hash Code is a team-based programming competition organized by Google for students and industry professionals (18+) across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. You pick your team(2-4 members) and programming language, Google picks a real-life engineering problem to solve. Are you up for the challenge?
