Welcome to the XRDS Blog

Thanks for visiting. We are excited and eager to provide great content online. Continuing the tradition of XRDS being for students, by students, the XRDS blog will feature content relevant to CS students—getting the most out of grad school, identifying promising research trends, and addressing technical challenges that arise in academia and industry.

We feel the computer science blogosphere, however expansive, is currently missing a comprehensive blog voicing students’ concerns, interests, and opinions. If you agree and would like to nominate someone as a blogger—that student in your group who’s always up-to-date on the most cutting-edge research, the one whom you can always count on for good advice or interesting opinions—pleased send in their nomination. We plan to select some of the blog entries for inclusion in the print magazine.

Next week, Shawn Freeman, one of our feature editors will be at the ICPC World Finals undergraduate programming competition in Poland sponsored by IBM. For those who cannot make the event, Shawn will be live blogging updates throughout the week. Shawn will also be live tweeting, search for all ICPC related tweets using  the hashtag #ICPC2012.  And don’t forget to follow XRDS on Twitter (@XRDS_ACM).

If you have any comments or questions, or you’d like to know how to get involved, send an email to eic@xrds.acm.org.
