I had a great time attending PLDI and ECOOP. I got to attend many interesting talks and I got to talk to many interesting people.
I gave my first talk at PLDI, which went well. Thanks to everyone who gave me feedback on my talk and expressed interest in my research. I enjoyed getting to a chance to talk to other people working on API discovery research and getting their perspectives.
I had time to explore Beijing some. I got to see Tiananmen Square, Mao's tomb (which is in Tiananmen Square) and the Summer Palace, which is quite impressive.
Thanks to the NSF for the travel grant, and thanks to the organizers for a great conference.
