I met with Robert Dolca, Vlad Temian, Vlad Velici and Sabin Marcu at the location where the Bucharest bus departed to Galaciuc. I had already seen Robert and VladT about a month ago when Vlad came at ComicCon, but I hadn't seen the guys from Southampton University for about two years. After 5 hours of geek talking about programming, universities, software and anything you can imagine, we arrived in the camp. Being part of the jury has some slightly little advantages, like the fact that we stayed at "Cabana WiFi” (it's named liked this because it was the only place in the early years where you had Internet access).

Razvan Deaconescu talked about how open-source changes the software world. Razvan Rughinis told the high-school students about the differences between a software engineer and a computer scientist. A nice thing happened after their presentations, when about 50 students came to them with lots of questions.
I did my intro to Python hands-on presentation to about 15 people. I was surprised that 4 teachers came and diligently worked through all the exercises. During my hands-on, the awards for the Java Oracle hackathon were given. Some cool projects were done in just half a day.
