Greg Wilson, editor of Beautiful Code, Making Software, and the Architecture of Open Source Applications, author of several other books, creator of the Software Carpentry project, and all-around great guy, will be giving a presentation at the University of Victoria tomorrow (July 7th) at 1pm: “What I learned in seven and a half years of being a professor that might be useful for those of you contemplating academic careers“. Room ECS 660. My guess is that you’ll get a lot out of it if you’re at all connected to software development, even if you’re not contemplating academic careers. All welcome!
