Good Luck Sir Rice!
Good Luck Sir Rice!
We hit a lot of the touristy NYC hotspots this weekend. One of which was the Statue of Liberty.
The best way to see it is to take the Staten Island Ferry! It goes right by and it’s free!
Fun times! :D
Sir Rice will defend the day before Halloween! Stop by if you’re in the Boston area!
I hope he dresses up!
Good luck Sir Rice!
In two weeks, I’m giving a short talk for Ladies Who Code, on using Python and the Blender API to programmatically create 3D printable models.
Stop by if you’re in the NYC area!
You’ll get an intro to the Blender API, with the focus on modeling. You’ll also learn about 3D-printing-specifics like mesh repair and various optimizations.
It’ll be fun!
I didn’t attend as many talks as I did yesterday, mostly ’cause I’m feeling under the weather.
Those that I did go to were AMAZING!
Favorite quotes from the conference:
There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women. ~ Madeleine Albright
Heads up to all the employers: there is a legion of women who *will* be negotiating their salaries, so budget accordingly. ~ Ruthe Farmer
Every time you don’t ask, you make it harder for every other woman to ask. ~ Matt Wallaert
I absolutely loved Grace Hopper. It’s probably my favorite of out the ones I’ve been to this year.
Hope I get to come back next year!
Leaving this here for inspiration and nostalgia:
Wow, today was totally packed. I went to sooo many talks and panels.
I also got to meet up with Clare! It was good catching up.
There’s a lot of parties happening right now but I think I’m sleeping early tonight.
The day started out SO GOOD!
Shafi Goldwasser presented on crypto. All those zero knowledge interactive proofs and homomorphic encryption made me really miss computer science.
I loved how she used the Count to represent the computationally bounded adversary.
I then went to a presentation by Jamika and Rachel and a workshop by Denise, both of which were AMAZING.
Next up is dinner with Google for all their travel grant winners.
Usually I’m super exhausted by the first day of conferences, but not so for Grace Hopper. I’m still super energetic/excited for tomorrow!
