Spare-Time Teaching is an open learning platform, that organizes weekly Friday talks and monthly social events related to computer science. 

Spare-Time Teaching was created for students who want to share ideas and experiences, find like minded students, or just want to learn more. Spare-Time Teaching is completely non-profit, and all the talks are held by student volunteers. This also means that the subjects are usually outside of the university's curriculum, or practical applications and experiences with the curriculum. Everybody is welcome to attend or present.
