Blogging about Hacker School?

Day 25

Today I spent most of the day working on the extended writeup of last week’s project and attending Mary’s functional programming workshop, which is conveniently also online. Note that at the point in the text which mentions lemonade, she actually gave us all lemon sodas, because Mary is the best. (All Hacker School facilitators are the best.)

The Monday lecture was by Philip Guo, and was about the pursuit of a PhD. I can’t say that I found his entire argument convincing, but I loved his research; in particular, I find his Burrito system of logging project progress quite compelling.
