If we’ve met in person in the last few weeks you probably knew this already, but I just moved to Seattle for the summer to work on an internship at Microsoft Research. It’s a great opportunity — I’ll be working with Gina Venolia at the Human Interactions in Programming group, which consistently produces some of the best work in the area of coordination in software teams. I’ve discussed some of this work before in this blog; I’m excited to try and do some of it myself.
In any case, yesterday was my first day at the Microsoft Campus. It’s mostly been orientation so far, but I’ve already got a project sketched out, and I’ll be filling in the details in the days to come. Stay tuned if you’re interested, and if you’re also in the Seattle area let me know!
