I wanted to go to SIGCSE (the computer science education conference) this year, but breaking my self-imposed no-fly rule once made me feel guilty enough. Lots of people have been blogging about it, so I have lots of catching up to do (and lots of videos to watch). The theme for SIGCSE 2011 , which is being held in Dallas, Texas, is "Reaching Out." The symposium will focus on connecting with colleagues in other fields and developing interdisciplinary courses and research that integrate computer science and other fields. If all goes well, I hope to have something to say by then about Software Carpentry.
