TechEdConnect logo
Formerly Westchester PC Users Group (WPCUG)

We are excited to introduce our new name, TechEdConnectSM, and our new logo, which better reflects who we are today. The changeover will occur over the next several months as we are currently building a brand new website.

The new website will be mobile-friendly and will offer additional features. In the meantime, you will continue to see the WPCUG name and logo on various pages of the current website.

We are a non-profit technology club located in Westchester County, New York.
Our goal is to increase the computing knowledge of our members and our community.
All workshops and General Meetings are currently held on Zoom
until we can hold in-person General Meetings again.

October General Meeting

The Life of Stars

October 5
, 2023 @ 7 p.m. ET

Remote attendance via Zoom video conference.

How are stars born, and how do they die? How can we study these faraway objects, and why do we need golden mirrors and supercomputers to do so? Are we all truly made of stardust? This talk will explore the life cycle of stars and how scientists use both telescopes and computer simulations to uncover their mysteries. Focus will be placed on a specific example, the spectacular stellar explosions known as Type Ia supernovae, to demonstrate how the scientific method guides our understanding of the universe.

Speaker: Catherine Feldman, Ph.D. candidate at the Institute for Advanced Computational Science at Stony Brook University, NY. She works with computer simulations (in Fortran!) to model bright stellar explosions known as a Type Ia supernovae. Catherine is learning how to get her code to run faster on different CPUs, including Intel, AMD, and a special ARM-based chip. In her spare time, Catherine is an avid knitter and baker, and enjoys lifting weights.

Operation Clean Slate

In the last several years, the use of malicious software (malware) by online criminals has emerged as a global cybersecurity threat. Of the available intrusion devices, the “bot,” or Web robot, is particularly pervasive, allowing an attacker to take control remotely of a compromised computer or computers. Invisible to
victims, these networks, called “botnets,” can include hundreds of thousands of machines around the world, controlled by a cyber criminal, or “bot herder.” . Read more.....
