I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be attending SIGCSE (Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education) this year, my first time!
I’ve been wanting to attend this conference, the supposed best for Computer Science educators, since I first heard of it back in my second year of undergrad. In fact, the professor that told me about the conference will be attending this year as well, and has already offered to introduce me to “people I should know,” which I’m very much looking forward to.
As someone who is currently in between academia jobs, this can’t come at a more perfect time. I’m very excited to meet a lot of people and learn about awesome Computer Science Education research (which is normally severely underrated).
I also just applied for a workshop that happens the day before the conference starts. The workshop is specifically for women in the early stages of the academia careers. I really hope I am selected for this workshop, as I feel I could learn a lot from it.
Here’s to a productive 2017!
