To me an install-fest is extremely interesting.
When I was in the Ph.D. computer science program at the University
of Michigan the professors said, "We do not teach Ph.D's any
technology because computer science technology changes so fast
that anything you learned might be obsolete very quickly. We
teach all of the fundamentals of CS and you can pick up whatever
technologies your job requires whenever necessary." For me during
the past two decades in Indonesia, just keeping ahead of all of
the increasingly complex fundamentals of CS is all that I could do.
I always learn a lot about new technologies at an install-fest.
I will have spent the past 3 days on the floor of a Ph.D. in
Coventry when I come tomorrow. I do not like to stay more than
3 days in a row with anyone. After 23:00 is too late to ask
to stay with a stranger and it is too late for me to get back
to a Bham hostel before they lock up for the night. So if anyone
has anywhere I can stay after the meeting, it will be highly
Thanks for remembering me and pointing the group to a google search.
