Geek Speak: Secrets and Unconventional uses of Microsoft Office

Please join us on Thursday, February 14, at 4:00 p.m. in Jonas 110 for this week's Geek Speak!  Hosted by Jeffrey Winter: “Secrets and Unconventional uses of Microsoft Office”

Everyone who uses a computer has most likely used some kind of Microsoft Office product (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc…) but not very many are aware of what is actually possible with Microsoft Office.  This talk will look into some ideas and projects that were made with Microsoft Office.  The list of projects includes, but is not limited to art, movies, games, and viruses.  Although most of these projects in this talk can be made with more conventional software, they are still impressive and worth studying.  We will briefly look at how you too can make by using various tools in ways you might not have believed to be possible as well as some tools you were unaware of.  Although some of these projects do involve some coding and use of macros, no programming knowledge is required for understanding this talk.

Note: Jeffrey Winter does not have any Microsoft certifications and is not paid in anyway to promote Microsoft Office.

Enactus joins with CAB and the School of Business to bring this new-release film
Enactus joins with CAB and the School of Business to bring this new-release filmMary Janes - The Women of Weed

Women are changing the face of today's fastest growing industry: cannabis. Filmmaker Windy Borman explores the movement to end marijuana prohibition, her own relationship to the plant, and the stereotypes surrounding it. Through a series of empowering and educational interviews with a broad diversity of women leading the industry today, Borman adjusts her own assumptions as she discovers cannabis liberation intersects with the most urgent social justice issues of our time. She learns how this green revolution has big effects on environmental sustainability, the War on Drugs, the Prison-Industrial Complex, and the domination of Big Pharma. Date: Wednesday, Feb 20, 6:30 p.m. in Club Buzz.
