I've been working on writing a paper to submit to the SPLASH 2012 Student Research Competition and working on the grammar for the new language on and off.

This week I had meetings with my post doc mentor everyday to design the construct of our language.

We wrote a sample program based on the requirements document I wrote up before. As we were coding, we discovered more and more issues, such as where to place access policies, what to instantiate, how to instantiate, etc, but as we worked, we developed a more in depth understanding of what was needed and how to implement our ideas.

The first week, I spent a lot of time reading papers. I mostly read papers written by people in the group. I also did some reading on security to get a better grasp of what needed to be prevented and how.
