Presentations and talking and developer relations (Oh my!)

Arranging a couple of talks at the University of Toronto over the next month (thanks Greg). Also trying to arrange one for the University of Tirana (Albania) for our visit there this month. Still need to contact the University of Waterloo and some of the other local computer science (and related) schools (particularly ones that teach Python). I'm thinking maybe Seneca @ York would be a good choice, given their Open Source program...

In more important news I'm getting a laptop! Yay! I get to play with one of the coolest computers ever created. What's more, it'll be my job to talk about it... I love to talk! What more can I ask for, a job getting people to love a lovable little computer that's going to change children's lives! Yay!

I'm planning to try making it my primary machine... that will likely mean I'll be hacking on Sugar (the GUI shell) quite a bit to make it work the way I want it to. I'm not really the target market, but making it fit should help the flexibility of the system. One thing I'll need to figure out quickly in order to do presentations is how to hook up to projectors (there's no video port AFAIK, so it'll have to be something more exotic).

Bounce! Bounce! Happy! Yay!

    If you have any interest in coming to talk at McMaster, let me know. I think I'm the only guy in Software Engineering that does Python, but a lot of the profs are functional language guys, and might like to see a different perspective.<br />

    Once I'm further into my PhD, I intend to try to push Python more around here. I've already impressed a few people with what Python can do, but that's all I've had time for.
