Enjoyed PLDI and ECOOP
I had an amazing time at PLDI and ECOOP. I heard a lot of interesting talks and was engaged in helpful conversations. It was interesting to see that parsing was still not solved in a talk about a new tool for parsing C with macros. I received interesting questions after my presentation of the paper, Java Wildcards Meet Definition-Site Variance. Peking duck is delicious. The knock off markets are fun to shop at (e.g. on Qiamen Street), if you like negotiating. Walking around Tiananmen square was exciting. I really enjoyed and learned a lot from attending PLDI and ECOOP.
