I just got home from the Innovation and Technology in Computer Science (ITiCSE) conference in lovely Aberdeen, Scotland. I was there to present a small experience paper on developing and using RepoBee, an open source tool for generating and managing large amounts of Git repositories for students in higher education. The paper is available over in the ACM Digital Library, and it's my very first publication outside of school, so I'm quite proud of it!
The conference itself was also terrific. The atmosphere was very friendly, there were many interesting talks and social activities, and I have a hard time imagining how a conference could be more inviting to a first-time conference-goer like me. If you have a chance to attend it, I highly recommend doing so.
