CUSEC 2008

On Saturday I’ll be in Montreal giving a talk at CUSEC, the Canadian University Software Engineering Conference. It’s an unusual event, organized by and for students. According to the backstory, the goal was:

…to bring the most passionate software engineering students from across Canada together under one roof, to listen and learn from the smartest and the greatest software engineers the world has ever seen.

As another of this year’s speakers, Tim Bray, has noted, we are in excellent company. Of course I’m not really a software engineer, and I don’t even play one on TV, but I’m glad that the planners thought my own unusual perspective would be valuable, and I’m looking forward to hanging out with a crowd of passionate students.

  1. Jon, do you know if The Conversations Network will be posting any of the talks from CUSEC? I searched the websites of CUSEC, The Conversations Network site, and Eventful.com without success.

    At the very least, I hope we can look forward to hearing your talk via one of your podcast feeds.

  2. For the first time this year, the organizers taped everything in HD. Last year they did audio only and the year before nothing. They promised to make the videos available for download so in the coming I imagine days or weeks the cusec website will probably start posting videos.
