Hey Divers,

Welcome to the long stretch... Assignments are looming, exams are an unknown variable, and you haven't had a single coffee on campus this whole semester! It's enough to drive anyone to madness. (Or JavaScript.) 

Nevertheless, we at diversIT are pushing on! Our Discord server is popping off, with regular movie nights and game nights featuring Jackbox, and more!
And our Trivia Night this Saturday will be a night to remember. Bring your IT know-how along, because there'll be an IT trivia round too!

Until the next newsletter, check out our Facebook (where we post the best content), and stay healthy, safe and content!

Register for our inaugural Virtual Trivia Night!

  16/5    Online assessment too easy for you? Want more for your hard work than just the satisfaction of hard-earned marks? Have you a keen eye for diversity-themed merch? Or are you simply a gigantic show-off, and have been waiting for a chance to prove that you're better than everyone else? 

Well, answering 'yes' to any of these means you should come along to our Trivia Night this Saturday at 8pm! Form a crack team with your friends, or join as a lone wolf and let us sort you into a team... All are welcome! Signups close this Wednesday, so click the button and get in quick or miss out on your chance for some exclusive diversIT merch!

MAC x Hack | Git Essentials

 13/5  Does anyone really know what the difference between Git and GitHub is? I sure don't. Well, if anyone knows, it's probably the good folk at MAC. Their president April will be explaining the fundamentals of Git this Wednesday!

MAC x Collab | Web Development

 14/5  If you're anything like me, 'web development' is a scary phrase, and so are HTML and CSS. But here is a way out! Every week MAC are offering the opportunity to collaborate with others while working on your own project. This week, code along with Anna and Jasie as they walk through the basics of HTML, CSS and web design!

Take a look at this opinion piece by Elias Torres, the founder of tech startup Drift, and why he believes big tech approaches diversity and inclusion 'like dental hygiene' - that is to say, reluctantly. How does Drift do things differently and holistically integrate diversity and inclusion into their operations?
