So, Greg, What Are You Up To These Days?

I’m glad you asked:

  • Today was my last day at Side Effects; thanks to a grant from the Sloan Foundation, I start work on Software Carpentry again on Monday.
  • I'm running an open course on how to teach programming to free-range learners over at P2PU, which also starts on Monday.
  • Volume 2 of The Architecture of Open Source Applications is coming along nicely—Amy Brown is doing her usual great job of organizing, editing, and managing reviews, and we hope to have it on the shelves (and the web, and your tablet) in April.
  • Ellen Hsiang and I collected some great feedback on And Then... just before Christmas, and we're going to try to find time to make some revisions in the next couple of months. I haven't written any fiction since last February, but Sadie has threatened to get me a desk in a shared workspace two mornings a week as a birthday present to shame me into putting my head down and actually finishing one of the novels I've got on the go.

It’s going to be a busy few months…
