PPIG 2015 - 26th Annual Workshop

PPIG 2015: Work in Progress meeting

By Chris Douce

Day 1

On 8 January 2015 I went to a mini-workshop: the Psychology of Programming Interest Group (PPIG) Work in Progress meeting. I've had an affiliation with PPIG for what must be at least fifteen years and I try to visit their meetings whenever I can. In some sense, returning to the PPIG meetings is like returning to a comfortable academic home: you regain enthusiasm for the research interests that you once held (and have an opportunity to say hello some familiar faces too).
