Milden Hall 2018

Barn interior
The Tudor barn, Milden Hall

In 2018 we’ll be back at Milden Hall in Suffolk – from dinner on Wed 3 October to breakfast on Tue 9 October.

Weekend guests

As in 2016 we shall have guests for the weekend and a barbecue on the Saturday evening.

See Camp QB for details.

Dining

Lunch in the kitchen
Lunch in the kitchen, 2016

Miki Yamanouchi will again be our in-house chef, working with local produce, ales and her own honey and marmalades.

Programmers can’t go a week without pizza, so on Fri 5 Oct we shall dine at the White Horse in Edwardstone, a mere 3 miles away on Milden Hall’s bicycles. (Reportedly shorter on the way back.)

Invitations

The barn is big but accommodation is limited; participation is by invitation only. Participation is not limited to programmers working with array languages: if you are interested in vector programming, we too like perspectives from other languages, and especially functional programming.

Cost includes accommodation, all food, and use of the facilities. Price for the week will vary between £900-£1,500 to reflect the different standards of room available.

If you would like an invitation to Iverson College at Milden Hall this year, please write to Stephen Taylor sjt@5jt.com. Say

  • something about what you are working on
  • that you would like to come for the week (see Camp QB for the weekend)
  • if there is any part of the week you would not be able to attend
  • if you would prefer/be willing to camp

Invitations will go out this spring.

Apologies in advance to those who will be unable to join us. Part of what makes the house party work is mixing different ages and experience. Every year we pass over well-qualified and eligible people who would make great contributions.

Travel

Milden Hall is about a 2-hour drive from London.
