Google Summer of Code winds up again...

Looks like it's about time for the tenth annual Google Summer of Code. This awesome program pays students whose applications are accepted $5500 during the summer to work on open source code with one of about 200 participating organizations. For the last nine years, Portland State University has been one of these organizations, with yours truly as lead Organization Administrator (for the last bunch of those years, with the assistance of David Percy): I'm hoping we can make it year 10! I'm supposed to put in the Organization Application this week.

Things I see in student code

I've created a new page in the new pages area describing "things I see in student code." Enjoy. Fob

Things I see in student code

I've read quite a lot of student code over the years. Some of it is quite good. A lot of it is full of predictable badnesses. These notes attempt to enumerate some of this badness, so that you may avoid it.

This is pretty C-centric in its current form. However, many of its lessons are multilingual. This is a living document, so don't expect it to be the same next time you look at it. In particular, the numbering may change if something gets inserted in the middle. It is revisioned automatically by Drupal, so feel free to point at a particular revision if you care.

PSU OSS Course Mentoring For Google "Summer of Code"

The registration period is over, and my PSU OSS class is the sole US University mentorship organization in Google's Summer of Code program. (A group at Universita Politecnica delle Marche in Ancona Italy is the only other University participant.) I think this is pretty cool. Check out our site at http://summer.cs.pdx.edu for more info.

Congratulations to Mark Heller

Congratulations to Mark Heller on successfully passing his Master's Thesis oral defense! His thesis, entitled "Virtual World Development With Ontologies", is available on his thesis wiki.

Our apologies for not issuing an invitation to the defense. It got rescheduled, and there was insufficient time to notify folks.

Sigma Xi Poster Contest Huge FOB Success

The 2005 Willamette Valley Sigma Xi Poster Contest was held Thursday at PSU. The FOB team had 9 posters there, out of a total of around 75 overall. All the posters (FOB and other) were really nice. Emma Kuo and James LaMar won the outstanding poster award in the undergraduate math/science/engineering division for the Bismarck poster. Thanks to everyone who made it possible!

Poster macros

The posterform macros, attached, are LaTeX macros for easy creation of large-format posters. They're a mess at present---this is definitely an alpha release.
