Welcome to Genycs Magazine!

Welcome to the first issue of Genycs Magazine, the official magazine of the "Generation Y Computer Scientists" group at Facebook.

As the name says, this group is supposed to connect people into computer science (programmers, managers, designers, researchers, etc.) who were born between the years 1980 and 2000. I have been asked the question why I created a group for a specific age category. Well, there is a reason for this. People of our generation have particular interests which we do not share with people of other generations. In any case, we are not exclusively open for Generation Y people. There are also some members in the group who were born earlier than 1980. Our motto is to be tolerant and open-minded; these people certainly have their reasons why they want to be connected with us.

This magazine is released as a diskmag edition and as an online edition. As some of you might know I am also the editor of the Hugi Magazine, which can be found at http://www.hugi.scene.org/. I have more than 20 years of experience in diskmag editing so it will be no problem for me to create something decent. However, I cordially invite all of you to participate in the making of this magazine, either by writing articles or by submitting graphics - just take a look at the contents of this issue and feel free to write about anything you consider to be interesting for our target group!

I am aiming for three releases per year. Since this first issue was released in February 2018, the next one will probably come out in June and the third in October. But this may change. Let's see what the future will hold to us. In any case, my intention is not to remain the sole author of this magazine, and therefore, I again invite every one of you to start writing and submitting stuff for this magazine.

Of course your feedback is always appreciated, as well.
