When I’m not trying to deliver the next great operating system or spending time with my family, I’m working on a masters degree in computer science. It makes for a busy life. As I’m doing this on the side, I’m only able to take one class a semester. Last semester it was Theory of Computation (automata, turing machines, NP, etc.). This semester it will be computer security. I look forward to getting back to a class where we might see a compiler. Theory of Computation is all about math. Let us just say that isn’t my favorite subject. It will be interesting taking this class. I was here for Microsoft’s security stand-down. I’ve been to numerous security-related classes and talks. I’m not an expert but I do have a working knowledge of the subject. I will be looking to see how what I’m learning coincides with my practical experience. This is a class that could be very useful or way too theoretical. We shall see.
