ACM’s Annual Lecture in Memory of Nathan Krasnopoler
Dec 7 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The Association for Computing Machinery’s Annual Lecture in Memory of Nathan Krasnopoler will be held at 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7 in Hackerman Hall B-17 on the Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus.

Mike AmbinderMike Ambinder, a senior experimental psychologist at Valve, will deliver a lecture titled “Shipping Something: How Valve Makes Products and How You Can, Too.” The talk will walk listeners through the process that Valve (developer of Half-Life, Team Fortress, DOTA and more) uses to create, iterate, and ship its products, and how that process can yield the skills and experience necessary to succeed in the software industry. The key “takeaway” from this lecture is that what works for Valve can also work for undergraduates looking for their first jobs, and can help them develop the ability to get where they want to go.

This lecture is sponsored by the Nathan Krasnopoler Memorial Fund, established at the Whiting School of Engineering to benefit the Johns Hopkins’ chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery.

Gallery Reception for Extreme Materials and Conditions: Common Ground between Art and Science
Apr 26 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

A capstone exhibition of works developed over a one-year residency with the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute.

Milton S. Eisenhower Library, Q Level
3400 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21218

Artist Talk 5:30 – 6 PM

Extreme is a word often used to consider the outermost limits. We strive to find the boundaries of our existence, yet we assume that those bounds can always be pushed further. This exhibition of photographs and sculptural works uses analogy and storytelling to playfully describe how HEMI is pushing the extreme boundaries of materials, time, and scale through their research. The audience is invited to consider the imagination required to observe and test a world that is so far beyond our given, natural senses.
