Student Originated Software 1997-1998
Spring Quarter

A Software Engineering Course at
The Evergreen State College

June 2, 1998
3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Library 3000

The software fair is an opportunity for Evergreen students from the "Student Originated Software" (SOS) program to present their software projects at this bi-annual event. SOS is a year-long program dedicated toward reliable, effective team development of tomorrow's business, science, and entrepreneurial software.

The year was 1983. Personal computers were just becoming popular, but without the contemporary bells and whistles. There were no spreadsheets, no database packages, and Basic was about the only computer language.

"Technology was very primitive," recalls Judy Cushing, Evergreen State College faculty member who has helped coordinate the annual fair almost every year for the past 15. "Now we're doing much more sophisticated projects."

The 1998 software fair has come a long way since those first projects that included simple real estate listings. This year's event features an African fractals laboratory and a bioinformatics automated research tool. In collaborative projects with the Washington Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) and Seattle community groups, the fair will also feature a DSHS accessibility and quality indicator, an Aging and Adult Services boarding home database and community events throughout Seattle.

Simultaneously with the 15th annual software fair is the Graphics Imaging Lounge first annual digital art show, to take place from noon to 7 p.m. in Library 1314. Both events are free and open to the public. Both events feature student work, the software fair by Student Originated Software and the digital art show from various programs, including Foundations of Visual Art.
