Following is a guest post by Michele Falce, technical program coordinator for the SEI.
This week in Dublin at SEPG Europe 2011 has been a fantastic experience. Dublin and its citizens have welcomed us with friendship and warmth, and there are very few who would say we haven’t been treated royally here at The Burlington Hotel. From sightseeing at the Kilmainham Gaol, Jameson’s Distillery, and the amazing Cliffs of Moher to shopping on Grafton Street and sampling the fish and chips at Sheehan’s Pub to taking in the Ragus Irish music and dance show at The Burlington, I’ve had a wonderful week so far!
I wanted to send a big thank you to all of the SEPG Europe presenters who are here this week for their professionalism, interest in transitioning their knowledge to the community, and their good nature. It has truly been a pleasure for me to make new acquaintances and renew old ones. Everyone has been timely in delivering their presentations, interested in their audiences’ questions, and ready to give their all to inform the conference delegates. We’ve also had a chance to see the future of software engineering in our seven student poster presenters, who have been busy explaining their research to the conference delegates who stop by their posters in the Exhibit Area. All of the posters are very interesting and I can see that a lot of work has gone into their efforts.
Overall, it’s been a lovely week, and I appreciate all of your great efforts to inform the community of current events in the software engineering community and help to make this conference such a great success. I hope to see everyone soon at SEPG Europe 2012 or another SEI event.
