Visiting Seattle and the SIGCSE 2017 Conference

Last week I visited Seattle and the SICSCSE conference. This conference is one of the largest in the area of computer science education, and this year it had 1500 participants from all over the world (which is a new record).
My husband and colleague Mats Daniels got a prestigeous Gum wallaward at the conference: “ACM Lifetime Achivement Award” and did a much appreciated key note about the educators identity and learning. It was great to see that people were standing in line to ask questions after the key note, and many were very interested.

There was also time for some sightseeing to some parts of the city, such as the gum wall in the photo to the blog post. What you see in the photo is chewing gums that people have put on a wall. Really an amazing number! 😮
