Seems like it’s again a month since I last blogged here… :( I’ve been a little outside the GNU Classpath sphere lately, and I really need to get back in the fold. Things have been a little crazy in real life, recently. At the beginning of the month, I had laser surgery, which slowed things down for a week or so afterwards while I recovered. Things have also been busy with the start of the new academic year here in the UK, and teaching duties once again starting up. I seem to be on top of things again now though, and hopefully will commit a bit more soon. I certainly need to do a merge tomorrow……

As a closure to Summer of Code, I went down to London to visit Google yesterday. It was an enjoyable experience, and certainly very interesting. The whole place is kinda like what our PhD research lab would be like if we had about ten times the space and a few million to spend… ;) I came away with a bag full of goodies, and some interesting insights. I’ll also be involved in Google’s Pizza ambassador scheme, once the European side gets going, and I plan to have another stab at SoC next year. It’ll be earlier than last year, probably sometime in February, so need to think about this sooner rather than later.
