Yesterday I got back from Montréal, Canada, where I stayed for a week while attending OOSPLA 2007, a conference about computer programming. Fun, fun, fun. I heard many interesting talks and met lots of interesting people. It’s awesome being so far from home, the only American around a table of ten grad students, but still able to crack stupid inside computer science jokes. 😀 Unfortunately, I am now behind in schoolwork and grades (with a major exam coming up), so the next week is going to be insanely stressful. Going home for Thanksgiving is starting to look REALLY appealing.
