GHC vs. GHC [Oct. 1st, 2010|12:32 am]
Lindsey Kuper

It's really irritating that ICFP and the Haskell Symposium directly conflict with the Grace Hopper Celebration this year. Grace Hopper is much larger of an event -- about 2,000 people, compared to ICFP's 200 or so -- so the ICFP organizers probably should have been the ones to reschedule. In any case, though, the thought that the Grace Hopper community is invisible to my PL community is annoying, and the thought that my PL community is invisible to the Grace Hopper community makes me feel ill.

I've never been able to tell this, but is Grace Hopper exclusively for women?

No. From what I hear, the attendees are 5-10% men.

Alan Eustace was there, too. There were multiple tweets about him getting out in the middle of the dance floor and shaking his booty.

I understand he's got a reputation as a dancer, actually...
