The annual dinner

We had the annual Computer Science dinner last Sunday. This our annual event for current students, supervisors and alumni.

First point of celebration was that all the Part II students successfully completed their projects and handed them in on time: well done everyone!

I’d like to thank the companies that sponsored us this year: Improbable, Palantir, Microsoft Research, Jane Street and Coherent Graphics. Your support is really appreciated.

This year we were lucky to have Eben Upton and Liz Upton of Raspberry Pi fame as our guests of honour. Eben gave us a really interesting talk about things that (almost) went wrong when they were getting Raspberry Pi of the ground. The moral of his story was that its never plain sailing in a startup. Imagine a swam: calm on the surface and paddling like mad underneath.

It was great to see so many people there. See you all next year.
