The UnDistinguished Lecture Series (UDLS) is a wonderful tradition in the UBC CS department. While it has been on hiatus for the recent months, this Friday I will be presenting the first UDL of the new term. We will start with a brief overview of the series, and some recommendations and advice for constructing your own UDLS. It is not as difficult as many might think :) Next I will present a brief overview over the city we study in (or do we….?). From its “founding” to Bing Crosby, from ramshackle bars to delicious new takes on lattes, this lecture has a little bit of everything - whether you are already familiar with the city or not.
