I’m writing this on Friday, because somehow I managed to not blog yesterday! This will be a short post so I can get on to Friday.
Took the R into Manhattan in the morning and arrived at Hacker School right about on time. Gave a presentation on MySQL and relational databases to a group of interested people (I forgot to mention: I gave a presentation on sockets and network programming on Wednesday).
I did another non-technical presentation (this will be my last – the facilitators asked me to focus on technical from now on, which is fine) about using different viewpoints (e.g. first or second person) when writing GUIs. I think it’s very important to have a good user/software interface, so I’m very interested in minor details like this.
Stayed a bit late and played some StarCraft – I’m going to a LAN on Sunday and I want to not be too terrible. That said, I lost all my games.
There were some people at Hacker School sitting around drinking beer and playing munchkin when I left. I was going to join them, but I wanted to get up early the next day for a tech breakfast in DUMBO.
