What I Ate at SIGCSE

19Mar15

About 2 weeks ago, I went to SIGCSE, which is the major computer science education conference. I talked about Computer Science Circles, its translations to other languages and translations of Python error messages to English; see the poster here. Like my last trip to SIGCSE, it was pretty great. I got to re-encounter previous colleagues, meet new ones, commiserate about C++, look at cool tools, learn more about pair programming, and I got to attend the famous “Nifty Assignments” session.

The food scene was also a good surprise! The event was held in Kansas City, Missouri. It turns out that not only is there a really great cafe (“The Filling Station”) tucked inside of an old gas station:

But there was also an amazing BBQ joint inside of another gas station (this one in Kansas City, Kansas):

Just to round things out and prove that there is food outside of gas stations, here are some shots from the farmer’s market in the River Market district:
