I've been busy at school recently,
undergraduate thesis and taking my final exams. I've got one
more exam on Thursday, but once that's finished, I should be
pretty much finished my undergraduate degree (fingers
In a complexity theory class I'm taking, I recently gave a
Kolmogorov complexity, introducing the basic ideas and
discussing some notable applications. I'm no expert at AIT,
so take the contents with a grain of salt.
I've decided to take a full-time position at Amalgamated Insight,
working on their PostgreSQL-based data stream
management system (DSMS). I interned at AI last summer and I
was very impressed, so I'm excited at the chance to
work for them again. This also means I'll be moving to the
Bay Area in early June.
Speaking of stream processing, I'll be giving a talk about
data stream query processing at PgCon 2007. Gavin and
also doing an introduction to modifying the PostgreSQL
similar in spirit to the "Introduction to Hacking
PostgreSQL" tutorial we gave at the Anniversary Summit. The
details are still a little hazy, but the goal is to make the
session rewarding to both newcomers and to those who attended
the previous tutorial.
