Being on time is easy: new RMIT timetable app updates your calendar for you and tells you where to go, when and how! | RMIT Computer Science & IT - tech news and ICT updates | Scoop.it
A new free calendar app designed by students puts the RMIT timetable system at your fingertips, integrating with your calendar to ensure you’re on time every time.

The app, called TimeWell, merges course timetables seamlessly with your calendar and updates to reflect room or time changes. It also keeps you updated with events and activities nearby.

The team behind the app all study with RMIT Computer Science and IT and consist of a mix of undergrad, postgrad and honours students - all united by a desire to create an app that makes life easier for themselves and their fellow students.
RMITComputer Science&IT's insight:
According to Senior Lecturer Dr Andy Song, who provided advice to the team, there's no app like this at the moment and he believes students will find the app simple and easy-to-use.

"Time Well aims to reduce frustrations for students and staff," said Andy. "Staying on top of busy campus life is always a challenge and it's great to see a group of our own students taking up this mission and using what they learnt, to help other fellow students and improve their study experience."

Award-winning iPad game teaches kids to reduce carbon footprints

Award-winning iPad game teaches kids to reduce carbon footprints | RMIT Computer Science & IT - tech news and ICT updates | Scoop.it

A student-designed iPad game that shows children the benefit of reducing their carbon footprint will represent Australia at the international round of the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance Awards in Sri Lanka, from 18-22 November, after winning a National iAward in August.


In the mean time, Smog Game developer Josh Caratelli has been busy at Melbourne International Games Week, with a speaking engagement at the Education in Games Summit, as well as attending PAX Australia and Game Connect Asia Pacific (GCAP), Australia's premier game development conference.

 

In this story, Josh discusses the challenges he faced in developing the game while studying for his VCE and looks forward to his plans for life after he's finished his Bachelors of Computer Science at RMIT.



RMITComputer Science&IT's insight:

Josh Caratelli has been flat out this past week, what with launching his iAward-winning Smog Game and attending events and conferences (and speaking at one of them!) during Melbourne International Games Week. He probably hasn't had time to think about his upcoming trip to Sri Lanka for the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance Awards in Colombo (from 18-22 November), for which he's representing Australia after winning the National iAward in August. I'm sure everyone at the School wishes him the best of luck. Go Josh!

Student hackers put to the test in nation-wide competition for unearthing new cyber security talent

Student hackers put to the test in nation-wide competition for unearthing new cyber security talent | RMIT Computer Science & IT - tech news and ICT updates | Scoop.it

An Australia-wide cyber security hacking competition brought Channel 7 to RMIT's SAB, Building 80, in Melbourne, to find out what the student teams were doing and why data security is such a priority issue for government and business.

 

Professor Mark Sanderson from RMIT's School of Computer Science and IT described how it is the 'holes' in websites that let the hackers in and lead to data leaks, while student Chris Heuvel spoke how hackers could 'break' websites to leave them unusable.

 

Cyber Security Challenge Australia (CySCA) is a ‘hacking’ competition for tertiary students run by an alliance of Australian Government, business and academic professionals who are committed to finding the next generation of Australian cyber security talent. It ran for 24 hours from midday Wednesday 30 September to midday Thursday 1 October with no breaks. Teams compete from their home campus while Telstra administers the game from Sydney.


The event is being run because there remains an IT security skills shortage in Australia, and there is a growing need for cyber security professionals in both government and private sectors, with Telstra heavily involved in hosting the Challenge.


This is the third year the event is being held and this year is bigger than ever, with 64 teams entering from 23 tertiary institutions around Australia. 

 

Dr Fengling Han, who mentors the teams entering from RMIT, says that several students from RMIT got internship and graduate positions after competed in CySCA 2013 and 2014.


Despite a tricky start, due to technical issues that delayed the four RMIT teams from getting started for several hours, they finished a creditable second in Victoria, behind Monash University, and around the mid-table mark nationally.


"I am very happy that CSIT has more and more students interested in the Cyber Security Challenge," said Dr Han.


"This is the only nationwide Cyber Security Challenge organised by government agencies with sponsors of Telstra, PwC, NBN, etc. There is a skill shortage in Cyber Security areas in Australia and the Telstra representative who came to RMIT yesterday said that if there are talented students, they will offer them jobs, so it's a great opportunity for everyone who gets involved with the competition."

RMITComputer Science&IT's insight:

Great Channel 7 news segment on the four student teams from RMIT competing in Cyber Security Challenge Australia this week. Professor Mark Sanderson explained what the problems with cyber security entail, while CSIT student Chris Heuvel described how hackers can 'break' a website.

Great work by all involved, including Dr Fengling Han and Dr Ron van Schyndel, and well done to the RMIT CSIT teams who battled inhibiting technical difficulties to finish second in Victoria and mid-table in Australia overall.
