Back to Blogging, Fall 2012

I stopped posting early last semester and am starting up again late.  Oops!  Here's a quick summer summary:

* I'm better.  I've had a bad illness the past few years that is now nearly invisible, thanks to modern medicine!  Awesome!

* I missed Games at Dal(housie) during the summer.  I'm certain it was awesome!

* I learned a lot of Javascript (not yet enough to get a javascript version of Atropos up).

* I learned a lot about parallel programming design patterns.

* I prepared to present a workshop at Supercomputing in November.

* I played with my one year old.

* We made lots of long road trips (with the one year old).

This semester I have spent some extra time putting together a game lunch, including a barebones webpage.  This time it's sandwiched between my two intro-programming labs.  The timing is nice because I see some of my programming students from each lab coming to play board games.  The downside is that I can't linger longer than an hour, which I would usually do in previous semesters.

So, yes, there will be posts this semester, though I may not quite hit two per week due to many of the summer projects that spilled over into the fall semester.  If you are especially interested in a certain topic, let me know and I'll do my best to cover it! :)

Happy Fall Semester!
