Passport wouldn't scan. Now stuck in line that isn't moving because they have 2 people working. Sigh.

I'll be speaking at Gophercon in Denver this year! I'm super excited both to be speaking, and to hear what the other attendees have to say. Meeting +Rob Pike in person would be awesome as well :)

Here's the topic of my talk:
"The mantra of the Go community is “keep it simple”. Sometimes, this idea is distorted to justify poor engineering decisions. In this talk, we’ll explore what simple really means, and what Go brings to the table."

Congrats on being selected! Should see you there, looking forward to your talk.

After a difficult week and a half, everyone is finally under one roof again and on the mend. So happy.

When the #juju developers get tired of coding in the sprint, they go to the coffee area in the hotel lobby for some casual conversations, as clearly demonstrated in this picture.

Some amazing work here.
There's a new Go REPL in town. llgoi is based on the llgo Go frontend for LLVM, and incrementally compiles using LLVM's JIT.

Consummate introvert. Writer, gamer, and total computer nerd.
When people ask me what it is I enjoy doing, I usually rattle off a list of things that tickle my intellect. I'd much rather be programming, or reading, or writing, or playing games than sitting in a bar. An intimate dinner with friends is preferable to a club.

Professionally, I enjoy several aspects of my occupation including: system architecture, programming, and interacting with my friends in the business. I love studying programming languages, and computer science in general.

This will be a review of the ski portion of Devil's head. We went to Devil's Head for a weekend trip after Christmas, but before New Years. I've been there several times before. Skiing: The slopes are some of the better ones I've tried in the mid-west. They're not going to rival ski resorts with access to mountains, but it's pretty good for the midwest. The runs were well groomed, the chair-lifts were well operated, and the equipment is decent. All in all a good time. Lodging: My expectations here were low since I feel ski resorts are notorious for focusing on the skiing and not the lodging. It's nice for what it is even though I felt like I was staying in a college dorm. The rooms are plain, but tidy and pretty clean. My only real complaint would be the half-inch gap below the door which lets all kinds of noise in. Restaurants: Here's where my real complaint is. The restaurants here are AWFUL. Just awful. There are several different restaurants on the grounds to fit different needs. We tried the Cliffhaus Cafe, Dante's Restaurant, and Cornucopia. The Cliffhaus Cafe is about what you would expect from a cafeteria style restaurant full of hungry families. The food was pretty bad though and was consistently old or cold (if it should have been hot). Oh well, it's just cafeteria food. Dante's restaurant is a sit-down restaurant; think Applebees without decorations. We went here for dinner the first night and waiting 2 hours for even our appetizers to come. They were very understaffed for a busy Friday night, and since the kitchen is partially open I was able to see 2, maybe 3 highschool boys milling around casually preparing food -- which, speaking of -- is like food from a stadium. Overcooked, fried, unseasoned. Blah. Our big dinner was at Cornucopia the next night. It's a nice looking place with an upscale menu (and prices). We were all tired and looking for a nice home-cooked meal. Let me first state that our waitress was great. She was professional, and obviously experienced. What she brought us back from the kitchen was prepared by a group of people who obviously weren't. I ordered the Filet Minion, medium well, with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. The steak came out medium rare and on my sister's plate. Her sirloin was on mine. I sent mine back to be cooked some more, but all they did was char the outside to a crisp and leave the inside rare. It was obvious to me they had no idea how to cook a steak. Two other steaks at the table were raw as well. My wife ordered broccoli as a side and instead got baby carrots. Raw baby carrots. After expressing our concerns to the waitress a little, she let on that these people were hired seasonally and that the bartender had never bartended, and the cooks had never cooked. Mystery solved. I will say that they comped our bill entirely which was an extraordinary gesture considering we had worked our way through some soups, salads, and beers which were perfectly acceptable. All in all, Devil's head is a pretty good place to ski, but I would pass on staying/eating at the lodge if you can help it.
