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.
