Save hours of time debugging with GDB

GDB Workshop

The Event

Are you in CS 253 or  ECE 330? Then you won't want to miss this.


Do you want to learn how to effectively debug C/C++ programs and save hours of time? Then make sure to attend this workshop. It will teach you how to use GDB to quickly find and fix bugs. Topics covered include TUI mode, checkpoints(memory snapshots), breakpoints, watchpoints, the built-in C interpreter, backtracing, valgrind integration, and more.

When & Where

Next Tuesday, April 9th. 4:30PM - 5:00PM

Dr. Loo: DIY 5kW Grid-Tied Solar Photovoltaic System


Solar photovoltaic (PV) can be very cost-effective. What does it take to install a system? This talk will give you the overview from design to grid-tied the system. The system to be discussed was installed in May 2014. At this writing, the 5kW PV system has produced over 34 MWh. The cost of install was $1.08 per watt after 30% federal tax incentive

People Skills for Engineers


Presented by Tony Munson

The Event

Drawing on more than sixteen years of experience working alongside other engineers, Tony will present a foundational set of people skills every engineer should possess in order to avoid--and resolve--relational problems before they have a chance to impact your personal effectiveness.


Don't learn the hard way when your career is on the line! People Skills for Engineers can help fill in the gaps in this crucial and often underdeveloped engineering skill set.

The Speaker

Tony is a husband, father, and a software engineer currently residing in Boise, Idaho. He graduated from Washington State University in 2002 with a degree in computer science and has spent the last 17 years developing software professionally for Agilent Technologies, Hewlett-Packard, and Cradlepoint in numerous technical roles. In his free time, he likes to write books, create music, and play video games.
