Actually, this building at Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco is almost heaven for all Cocoa-developers ;-)

When does something become usual? A good question because I have just received another scholarship from Apple to attend this years WWDC in June (06/11 - 06/15) in San Francisco. Maybe I will get the chance to introduce myself personally with Apple? Well, I am looking forward what the answer of Apple will be within the next weeks. San Francisco here I come!

Apple is calling

Posted by Matthias Lange on Thursday, April 12, 2007 at 1:24 pm

Yesterday I've got an e-mail from Apple where they say that they have read my resumé and that they want to arrange a phone interview with me. Wow, that's something I am really happy about however I am not sure what the purpose of this interview is. Job? Internship? I guess I should ask about that up-front.

The interview is scheduled for tomorrow evening and someone from the Localization & Release Engineering department will call me. To prepare for my first telephone interview ever, I have an appointment with my assurance consultant today. He has also specialized on job applications and I hope he can give some valuable tips. So, keep your fingers crossed.

Long time no see

I have to admit that I haven't posted on this blog for a long time now. Actually I was really busy since Christmas and had hardly time to even blog to my main blog. Since I have started writing my diploma thesis, time is very rare. I had two exams left where one of them I passed last week successfully. Today I hit one major milestone while implementing my thesis task. So, I am making continuous progress on finishing my studies.

Happy Holidays!

I am done! Just a few moments ago I finished my bachelor thesis with my presentation. Final result: 2. This is a good result in Germany.

The presentation went well. The attendees honored my good presentation style and slides. My supervisor was happy, that I have addressed the issues he claimed in his expertise for my written part. That was worth the nightshifts and all the stress of the last weeks. Head on for the diploma!

Achieving the unachievable

Posted by Matthias Lange on Monday, November 20, 2006 at 5:16 pm

Today at 11am was the day of the days: I have finished writing my bachelor thesis and filed it at our examination office. Within the next weeks I have to give a talk presenting my thesis and after that I am eligible for the title bachelor of science in computer science

The last week was full of nightshifts to finish my implementation of an architectural neutral page table interface for the Fiasco micro-kernel. Yesterday afternoon the kernel booted successfully for the first time on the qemu emulator. That doesn't mean that it will also work on real hardware. So it took me another few hours to fix that.

By 4:30am this morning I gave the finishing touches to my thesis, went to bed for 2 hours and printed the whole thing during breakfast.

Now I am happy that it is over.
