Course evaluations for Dr. Christ.
Professor was distant.  Arrived late and I could barely hear him.  Didn't engage one on one. Not open to different learning styles. Loved the course!  Hot prof! Cocky teaching style. Not challenged to think for myself. He eve...

UMass Amherst is hiring four positions in Computer Science this year in vision, robotics, natural language processing, and theory. We will soon officially become a School of Computer Science and have embarked on an expansion program (there are already 40 of us). We are also hiring for two lecturer positions.

The New Scientist has just published an article covering our AutoMan project, which makes it possible to program with people. Full article below. Reasonably accurate, though it’s my team, not +Dan Barowy's :). Also on the project are my student +Charlie Curtsinger  and my UMass colleague +Andrew McGregor

What if we titled CS papers for buzz? "GOTO Considered Harmful" -> "This One Horrible Construct Will Destroy Your Programs!" #upworthycs

+1 for the publicity, -100 for not mentioning me or anyone else on the project, or even including a link...

Thats pretty awesome, I hadn't seen this yet. They really should have linked to the project page because the article paints a weird picture. After reading the article (and nothing else), I thought AutoMan was itself a system to delegate tasks. But after googling the project page it seems that it is a framework that allows developers to build their own systems to delegate tasks? I am intrigued, and will read on!

Yeah. I mentioned the reaps stuff to the Apache folks years ago, since it solves exactly this problem (as you know). Went straight to /dev/null. Maybe it was just 10 years ahead of its time :).

It was an absolute pleasure working with REMIXED. They helped guide us down a path to stay within the UMass brand guidelines, while delivering a fresh logo for the Computer Science department. They were prompt, courteous and professional. I would definitely recommend their services.
