Welcome to CompSoc!

Compsoc - 15 years and counting

Congratulations to the new freshers!

Do you have an interest in computers? Programming? Gaming? Building them? Are you interested in getting involved in building robots? If the answer is yes to any of those questions, then Compsoc is for you.

Compsoc is a friendly collection of people who share a loose interest in various forms of computing, and in having a good time. For more information about what we do, see our About Compsoc page. Our upcoming events are listed on the right.

Join our Facebook page, or say hello to some current members on our IRC channel on irc.green-dragon.org (#compsoc) (Might be a bit quiet during the vacations). Not used IRC before? We've got a guide to getting connected. You can also access our IRC channel by this web client.

What is the Computing Society?

The Computing Society exists for anyone interested in computers to get together. We meet every Tuesday for a short talk followed by the pub, as well as running other events (LAN parties, workshops, trips to places like Bletchley Park, various socials...) We also support computing efforts in the area, especially where open source software is involved. See About Compsoc for more information.

So why come along to CompSoc?

CompSoc is a great way to meet other people interested in computers. Our talks and socials are generally open to anyone (including non-members) for free, so why not come along and see what you think?

Get in contact

If you've any questions come along to one of our talks (usually 8:30pm on Tuesdays in CG60) or socials, email computing.society@dur.ac.uk or talk to us online on IRC (a web client is available).
