The defense of my master's dissertation on compressed caching took place on Jun 06th at Jacy Monteiro Amphitheater of University of Sao Paulo, at 2PM BRT. The audience wasn't very large, but it was composed of high quality people :-). I guess the presentation was pretty fine, but it took a little longer than I expected. The questions about the project were clever, but no surprise. All the committee members liked the dissertation and my master was approved. After the defense, some close friends and I celebrated it going to a pizzeria, where we ate a lot. Now I have to fix some mistakes and check some suggestions in order to deliver the final version of my text and make it available on my web site (the text is in Portuguese).
Besides this task, I am spending some time on two paper submissions (in English). I intend to do (a brazilian symposium and an american workshop), that is why my code development isn't going very well. Oh, gosh, I guess I have to stop working at my job (would there be anyone out there willing to sponsor my work? ;-).
Time to update compressed caching website with new performance statistics.
