A few months ago, I blogged about Jorge Cham (the cartoonist behind the online comic strip Piled Higher and Deeper aka PhD Comics) coming to the University of Waterloo for a talk and book signing. If you’re a fan of the comics, you probably know that Jorge and the crew have been working on a movie adaptation of the comics for a while. Here is the trailer:

For the last 4 or 5 years, I have been a loyal fan of Piled Higher and Deeper (a.k.a. PhD comics), which is an online comic strip about life (or the lack thereof) in grad school. The comics are done by Jorge Cham, who started them when he was a PhD student at Stanford.

Today, Jorge was at our own University of Waterloo, where he gave a very humourous talk – arguably one of the most interesting talks I’ve attended over my whole time in grad school. The comics have a huge fan base, and the hall where he gave the talk was packed. Of course most of the audience were grad students, with a few undergrads and professors (at whom he poked fun every now and then).

Happy New Year!!

It seems that programmers have the same mentality everywhere. OR, compiling code has really become a tedious and time-consuming process.
