I’m applying to go to the National Computer Science School at USyd in January.

I’m not sure exactly what they do there or whether it’ll be particularly interesting, but, well, what is there to do in January anyway?

    I was a tutor at NCSS in 2008, and attended in 2006.

    Basically, it’s a week-long summer school, wherein groups of ~16 develop a web site, and related search engine for a charity. During the week, there are also fun activities (Programming Comp, Quiz Night, Cryptography Comp, etc etc etc), and excursions to plenty of largish tech companies in the Sydney region.

    I can thoroughly recommend going — you’ll certainly enjoy it.

    (As for other interesting things to do in January, try :P)

    I suppose I should also say — e-mail me if you have any more questions; I’m not (yet) directly involved with the 2009 Summer School (until the organiser invites tutors), but I should be able to do a servicable job of answering them for you, and probably quicker than the organisers would…
