Getting Together at NECC

Well it is about 48 hours until I take off for NECC. I’m really looking forward to it. On Wednesday night from 7 until 9 Microsoft is hosting a reception. I’m supposed to be there for work but I think I can get a bunch of invitations for others (it is a customer event after all) so if people would like to come an meet up there come find me and get an invitation. I will try to be around the Microsoft booth much of the afternoon. I will also be hosting a Birds of a Feather session for Visual basic teachers that (unfortunately) runs at the same time as the SIGCS meeting. I really feel bad about missing that one. On the other hand, in theory at least, the CIGCS meeting runs longer than the BOF so my plan is to drop by and see who I can see. I will try to bring some invitations to the Microsoft reception so I can bring as many friends and people who want to be friends as I can. So I hope to see as many of you who are going to NECC as possible.

There is an educational bloggers get together on Thursday night. (Details here) I hope to make that one as well. And if you are going to the CS & IT event run by the CSTA and proudly sponsored by Microsoft on Saturday the 8th you will definitely see me there.

  1. Dear Mr. Thompson —

    I was reading your blog and thought you might be interested in my presentation, entitled "Algorithmic Gymnastics," which covers the study algorithms as a key component of an introductory CS course.  I wanted to let you know that although it was originally scheduled for Friday, it has been moved to Thursday from 11-12 in room SDCC 30A.  A description and presentation handouts can be found at:

    Thanks!  If you have any questions, my email address is .
