Double Guest Lecture – KafE Series: Lecture 0

Come join us for the first KafE lecture of the year! Each block, the education committee EduKatiE organizes a guest lecture covering intellectual topics usually pertaining to our study.

This time, we’re lucky enough to have two guest lecturers!
Caroline Calomme from UM’s Faculty of Law will open the evening with a short presentation about the faculty’s upcoming event regarding law and how it applies to technology.
This short presentation will be followed by our main lecturer, Pieter Collins of DKE. He will be presenting an introduction to functional programming, specifically in Haskell, covering all the differences between object-oriented programming and functional programming, and how languages like Haskell are fundamentally a different way of “thinking” in code.

This event will take place on a Wednesday, so don’t forget to bring your Incognito Member ID’s to get 20% off La Colombe’s entire menu all evening! See you there!

 

Game of Assassin

IMPORTANT: REGISTRATION AND FULL RULES ARE AVAILABLE AT: https://goo.gl/forms/Y2BdwNPMFMAxLT0x1

REGISTRATION CLOSES FRIDAY THE 28TH AT MIDNIGHT!

The Guild of Assassins is looking for new recruits to join their ranks. However, there is only one way to find out who is most worthy of this recognition: A massive game of sneaking, backstabbing and outright slaughter.

Incognito’s event committee, AKtiE, is running an assassination game from Tuesday November 1st until Friday November 25th. Every registered player will be given a target who they will have to kill by stabbing this target in the back with a plastic knife provided by us, thus proving that they are worthy of their spot in the guild. However, if you yourself get killed, you are out of the game and are not able to join back in. The winner of the game will be the last recruit standing or, in the case that by the deadline multiple people have avoided death’s grasp, the player still alive with the highest kill count will take the trophy.

We highly advise you to read through the rules since they are quite extensive.

Good luck recruits. May the best assassin win!

Secret of Monkey Island

2013-11-14 20.50.29

The Secret of Monkey Island. Men and women have asked themselves countless times: what is it? Incognito will give you daring adventurers the chance to resolve the mystery that is the Secret of Monkey Island on Wednesday 25 November from 20:30 to 23:00 in the gym located at Gentiaanstraat 3, Maastricht. Note that this is NOT any of the gyms we have gone to before.

You will have to jump, run, evade, throw, catch, climb, (fall?) and generally show off your superb agility in order to get closer to the truth that is hidden within. In the past, this event has been referred to as ‘monkey business’ or ‘apenkooien’ in Dutch.

We ask you to pay an entrance fee of €3 in case you are a member of Incognito and €5 if not. In return, we will provide the necessary snacks and drinks to guide thee on thy lofty quest.

Good luck and hope to see you there!
