Being a volunteer in PLDI is going to be a very exciting experience. I'll get to know how such a large conference is organized, attend the workshops, talks and poster sessions, and talk to people who potentially have a very similar career interest with me. I heard about this conference from a professor's email about the co-hosted workshop PLMW, but eventually grew interest with the whole PLDI.
I hope to meet a lot of interesting people and hear about their career, how they're pursuing it and beyond. I want to learn about all the different things that are happening in PL and what it is like to be a researcher in PL, or anything else interesting in this area. It's going to be a lot of fun =)
