The SOU Computer Science department, in partnership with the Sustainable Valley Technology Group (, is excited to host local business speakers during lunchtime forums (Tuesdays, 12:30-1:30 pm) throughout the academic year. All Tech Talks will be held in SU 313 unless noted otherwise. Many thanks to the Sustainable Valley Technology Group for providing food at these events!  

In addition to the lunchtime Tech Talks, there is another series of technical presentations, held in the CS Computer Lab (on the mezzanine level of the Main SOU Computer Lab) on occasional Thursday afternoons, from 3:30 – 5:30 pm, that offer third- and fourth-year CS Majors an opportunity for a hands-on experience with new technology that has not yet been integrated into the CS Curriculum. The Tech Workshops at SOU are conducted by representatives from local tech businesses who introduce students to open-source software used in their businesses. Students are then able to test-drive the software, create their own variations, and present their creations to the group. Tech Workshops offer an all-volunteer opportunity for graduating students to network with local business representatives who may have internships, part-time or full-time positions available. Free pizza is provided by the CS Department.

Check back regularly for updated speaker information for both technical series, and visit the SOU Computer Science Facebook page.
