This month we will get Anthony Kosednar's third installment of his Intro to Cryptography series, "Intro to Cryptography - Quantum & Post-Quantum Crypto"
Description: Cryptography is at the heart of modern day privacy and security. We use it every day from sending an email to making important financial transactions.
With the advent of Quantum computing and the abilities it has brought, our security landscape has changed. Previously secure methods are becoming obsolete. Come learn about Qubits, Shor's Algorithm, and ways to keep information secure in a post-quantum world.
Before attending, it is recommended you watch the two previous talks in this series to have a better baseline.

We've got Robots and Relics for this months meeting. William Lindley will give us a history of computers with various items of historical significance that he's acquired over time and then Scott and Wendy Rose will introduce us to SUNI the robot. William Lindley: 75 Years of Computing in 60 Minutes
Description: The roots of modern digital computing go back nearly two hundred years, and through a series of pass-around artifacts from the past century, we will explore how the pioneers of the field and their groundbreaking decisions and technologies have led us -- for better or worse -- to today's Internet-enabled world.
About William: Mr. Lindley has been in the computer industry since he sold his first program (a printer driver for Heathkit HDOS) in 1980. He has used system from the earliest 8-bit microprocessors, through the PDP-11 and VAX, up to IBM mainframes, and has managed to write programs that did not crash on most of them. Mr. Lindley has been a GNU/Linux user since 1992 and has been free of proprietary software since 2001. Most recently he has been pleased to be an adjunct professor at Mesa Community College.
