SIGCSE Day 2
0545: OK, this is silly. Starbuck’s opened half an hour ago, the crazy guy shouting on the street is gone, it isn’t raining, and I have grant proposals to write.
0615: I have found my shoe!
0745: Back from Starbucks; rain has started, but first draft of two-page proposal for follow-on work to Software Carpentry has been written, and I haven’t misplaced any shoes.
1030: Session on “Learning for Professionals” learning about the professional master’s at Carnegie Mellon West, what new developers learn in their first year on the job (takeaway: most problems arise from inadequate communication skills), and parallel programming.
1200: Good discussion over lunch, followed by an hour of much-needed downtime.
1515: Another good discussion with Ray Bareiss about the Master’s in Software Engineering at Carnegie-Mellon West.
2045: Back to the hotel—as good as the beer is (and it’s very good), I need sleep more.
