Silicon Valley Code Camp '07

I will be talking this Saturday, October 27, at Silicon Valley Code Camp 2007. Code Camp is
a free conference by and for the developer community. Speakers volunteer their time and everyone attends for free. It's a place to learn, to network and to dig into some code.

I am pretty excited to have that opportunity; I will be talking about Test Driven Development, a subject dear to me. My session will take place on Saturday, 5:15 pm. I am also looking forward checking out the other sessions - the line-up this year is awesome!

Free the pumpkins!

Two days ago, as I walked towards my place, I noticed the street was regularly lined up with pumpkins; a closer look revealed that all of them were tied to urban fixtures, as if to prevent their escape. Weird.

Back from Spain!

We are just back from two weeks of vacation in Spain; "Due to technical issues", I could not upload any pictures during the trip - I will do so in the coming days, but in the meanwhile, here is the highly condensed trailer:
On a fait la Sagrada Familia in Barcelona...

On a fait the Quixotic Molinos in La Mancha...

On a fait the Tapas bars in Madrid at night...

After a few hectic days in New York - L decided to write an original piece for the reading that followed the Rona Jaffe Foundation prize, and has been working on it pretty much until the last minute - we arrived in Barcelona, where we spent 3 nights. Busy streets at night, bocadillas in all imaginable sausage flavors, and Gaudi all over, the contrast has hit us pretty strong. The city is all it was supposed to be, and yet, probably because of the tourists crowd, I am not unhappy to leave for Madrid tonight...
