C's Grandad, Spies, Women & Booze at the 2011 ACCU Bletchley Park Autumn LecturesA cornucopia of computing history, code-breaking and Top Secret if-I-told-you-I'd-have-to-kill-you insights into the life of a mathematician in the intelligence community can be had at the 2011 ACCU Bletchley Park lectures on Saturday Nov 12th.
They've got top-flight speakers including Ada Lovelace Award winner Frances Allen (yes, a woman! Whatever will they think of next?), inventor of CPL - the precursor to C - Dr David Hartley, and code-breaking and Bletchley Park expert and ex-Chairman of Logica Brian Oakley.
There'll also be updates from the Bletchley Park Trust and The National Museum of Computing and a tour, as well as sandwiches (hurrah!) and a bar (that sells booze - double hurrah!)
All that and more for a fraction of the price of a day at QCon. And it gets better. Every penny of the profits goes to help the Bletchley Park Trust and TNMOC, so you can learn, network, do your bit for our computing and code-breaking heritage and then drink yourself silly afterwards.
And it's being organised by Bletchley Park's own Kelsey Griffin and Claire Urwin, who do a mean conference.
