You win some, you lose some, you talk some

23 June 2008

After my shameful performance in the previous tournament, this weekend saw my greatest achievement in tournament Scrabble to date: that of advancing to the quarterfinals of the Cup of Poland. For the record, here are the final standings. In the quarterfinal, I lost both games to Tomasz Zwoliński (the former Champion of Poland), who went on to win the Cup.

On Thursday, I will be delivering a presentation about the dark side of programming: error handling and how to cope up with Murphy’s law. The talk will last around 30 minutes and be held within TechAula, a place to hear about exciting and revolutionary technologies in software engineering. Feel invited to register and show up.

(Postscriptum 11 July: By public demand, the slides from my talk are now available for download.)
