What I do all day, as told to a first-year CS student [Dec. 26th, 2014|11:10 pm]

Hi! I'm a friendly, albeit janky, Ruby script, and this is one of several automated messages that I'm capable of producing to let you know that there's a new post on composition.al.

great post. i know it's meant to encourage undergrads, but i personally find it really reassuring to hear that your first own-work paper wasn't until a year before you graduated. i'm in a similar spot -- when our SOSP paper got accepted (i was 4th or 5th author and put in about a month's work on it) it was easy to get all impostor-syndrome about it.

Thanks. Yeah, all my publishing success in grad school was compressed into an eight-month span from July 2013 to February 2014. When I visited Saarbruecken in January 2013 (at which point our first LVars paper had been rejected twice), Derek Dreyer pointed out that he didn't get a paper accepted until his sixth year of grad school, and that made me feel a lot better.
