We will focus on the "toy model" of bordered Floer homology.  Loosely speaking, this is bordered Floer homology for grid diagrams of knots.  While the toy model unfortunately does not provide us with any knot invariants, it highlights many of the key ideas needed to understand the more general theory. Note the different time and place!  This is a 1.5 hour talk.
