The OICR Software Engineering Club is a monthly forum that facilitates the sharing of hot topic technologies. Each month a volunteer is selected to showcase a topic of his or her choosing and present it here at OICR. Presenters pick their topics based on their working experience or a topic they are considering using in the future. That way they have a real connection with what they are presenting.
