The biggest news for today, at least relative to the center of my universe, is that I have a job. This fall I will be joining the Programming Methods Laboratory at Ecoles Polytechniques Fédérales de Lausanne (EPFL) as a postdoc working on the Scala language. It is an exciting opportunity to apply my expertise to language that is gaining popularity outside academia.
There is, of course, the small matter of finishing my dissertation. As if I didn't have enough pressure before, I've put together a pretty strict time-line that should be feasible.
