Hello Divers,

We're excited to welcome you to Semester 2! This is where the fun begins. Now that you've all settled in - and come to terms with your results :> - we hope you get out there and explore all that the IT world has to offer at Monash!

And if you're just starting your IT journey, we wish you all the best.

This week, lots of news!

Tip of the week, from Marcus: "Now is the time to consider summer internship applications, if you are a penultimate year student - lots of them are open now, and they're invaluable experience! Check out GradConnection and Glassdoor for the scoop."

MAC x Hack | Build in ReactJS

We know learning a language or framework not taught at Uni can be difficult. So we made a series that aims to deepen your understanding of different technologies! Join us for our first technical workshop in our MAC x Hack series.
In our first workshop, learn about the front-end JavaScript library everyone is talking about:  ReactJS. The first hour will be a demonstration and the basics. Then in the second hour, you can try it yourself, with mentors available to answer any questions!
