IN THE NEWS

OSU tracks bees with microsensors
Oregon State University will design miniature wireless sensors to attach to bumblebees that will provide real-time data on their intriguing behavior. Many aspects of bumblebees’ daily conduct are unknown because of their small size, rapid flight speeds, and hidden underground nests. OSU engineers will test small, lightweight electronic sensors that avoid affecting the bees’ natural flight movements. At the same time, researchers will test how to best mount the sensors on the pollinators – likely on the thorax or abdomen. Oregon Natural Resources Report, The Dalles Chronicle

OPPORTUNITIES

IEEE Store Volunteers
The IEEE store is in need of volunteers. Located in the basement of Dearborn Hall, the store provides students with many common, esoteric, and special order electrical components and parts for their school or personal projects. Student volunteers are crucial to the operation of the store, which is entirely student-operated. This is your opportunity to better serve the OSU community. Volunteering is easy, fun, educational, and it looks great on scholarship applications and resumes. A typical volunteer may work in the store for only one or two hours per week, although more time is certainly welcomed. Please sign up with the time you would like to volunteer on the following doodle: http://doodle.com/a4z3xkcfk8p6iwdp. We will be sending out a doodle poll later this term, to set up a time for a training session. Questions: osu-exec@ieee.org

MindSumo MongoDB Challenge
At MongoDB, we constantly struggle with tracking developer productivity, and trying to understand how and when we’re doing our best work. One way we’d love to achieve this is through a git post-commit hook that records data about our commits in a MongoDB database. Then we could create and run aggregations, giving us insight to interesting questions like: 1) On average, when are we most productive? 2) What time of day do we see the most commits? 3) What is the size of a typical commit? Details

MindSumo Groupon Challenge

Where would this not work well? 3. What are the technical pitfalls of this approach? What are the benefits? Details

MindSumo Addepar Challenge
