I found an internship here in Sophia in the company where i worked this summer. Nice place, nice guys, i think i will have fun :-)

Did some coding today : i'm working on collaborative filtering for my school. Quite interesting! But the code i get from my teacher is awful C++ :( I spent the whole afternoon to see variables like :

int something;
and so on. That's a great name for a variable, isn't it? I remember a web page summarizing the 100 things to do to make code unreadable and unmaintainable. I should find this url and give it to him.

Now, it's time to go back home and see my wonderful wife :)
