June 9, 2023. In an epic quest of sabbatical meets sabbatical, I'm taking a short sabbatical to help Shriram Krishnamurthi take a sabbatical! That's right my friends, I'm going to be teaching CSCI 1730 Programming Languages with Shriram at Brown University this fall. Shriram is a first-rate CS educator, innovator, and the author of Programming Languages: Application and Interpretation (PLAI). I'll be putting my own spin on PLAI and hoping to learn a lot of new things in the process. It's going to be great!
