On December 4, a series of well-prepared activities, which is namedFirst Step in Programming, had its first show in SIST workspace, aiming to lead the freshmen to get familiar with the basic concepts of programming gradually through an easy way.
The first lecture of this series was given by Liu Jianzhong, ajunior undergraduate student. Using the example of Fibonacci Array, he explained the route from interpreted languages and compiled languages to the process of compiling, linking and loading before the program was finally executed. The lecture was different from a traditional lesson, which made it more attractive. In this 2-hour activity, a huge number of enthusiastic participants came, which was far more than the organizers had expected.
GeekPie makes it a tradition that several elementary lectures are given every year, starting from GeekPie was founded. These lectures, includingA Glance at Linux(2014),Hardware Design(2014),The Mystery of Math(2015, Series),Network Communication(2015, Series),First Step in Programming this year, and Learning Group of Technical Department(LGTD), are widely popular among the students.
