Last week, I got to visit Canada for the first time to attend the 2018 Dunlap Institute summer school for astronomical instrumentation at University of Toronto. I learned about everything from radio interferometry to the nitty gritty details of how CCDs work, and met a bunch of great people along the way. HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone interested in doing instrumentation!!
