Starting with the Fall 2011 term, there's always something happening on Wednesday Nights at the Tetherless World Constellation!


About TWed Talks

Informal overview talks and tutorials on topics of interest to the Tetherless World Team. Leaders within the lab have the chance share tools and expertise. These are expected to be highly interactive. Leaders are encouraged to include live "hack" activities in their session plans.

About Hack/Tech Sessions

Informal group work sessions. This is a time when everyone will "be around" and you can rely on the "right" people being their to answer your questions. This is also a great opportunity for project teams to "hack" together on problems, with the knowledge and resources of TWC surrounding you.
