Resources from SWE During COVID-19
Weekly Meetings & Events
As you may expect, our weekly meetings and other events are canceled. Awards and election announcements will go out via email/social media shoutout. The only exceptions to this will be the Election Information meeting and the registration event for the mentorship program. More information below.
In place of weekly meetings, we are going to have weekly challenges! You will submit a response to a prompt in the SWEmail with ideas about how to better the section in various ways (related to outreach, the Mentorship Program, etc,). We’ll choose the winner, and they will get something from DoorDash or Uber Eats delivered to them!
Tips for Remote & Online Learning
How can you stay productive while studying at home? Try the Pomodoro technique:
Choose a task you’d like to work on.
Set a timer for 25 minutes and work on that task without interruption.
After the timer goes off, take a 5 minute break and do something relaxing.
Once you complete four cycles of this, take a longer break (up to 30 minutes). Read more about this time management method here.
