I’ve been too lazy to take pictures of my trip to Oxford earlier this week, but Steve has them – lovely.
The nominations are open on the www.ossaward.ch site, in the following categories: swissness (a project), business (a company), pioneer (a person or institution), advocacy (a person) and youth (a young person).
With my grumpy-french-speaking-minority hat on, I cannot help notice that that site is only available in german…but if I tell them I’m sure they’ll suggest that I volunteer for translating ;-)
Searching for info about past GSoC programs I stumbled on http://code.google.com/soc/2008/ – looks like the 2008 edition is starting already!
I hope to make it to Martin Odersky’s The Scala Experience talk, next Monday at EPFL Lausanne.
Update: very interesting as expected, we got a quick but extensive tour of Scala’s main features. The slides at lamp.eplf.ch are the same that he used for the talk, as far as I can tell, but the offline version won’t be as good as listening to Mr.Scala himself, obviously.
