I had a great time volunteering at and attending PLDI 2016. The volunteering responsibilities allowed me to help make the conference run more smoothly and did not detract from the event at all – the duties mostly required attending talks that I wanted to attend. This PLDI was at a great location and had many good papers and presentations. I'm looking forward to watching the recordings for the sessions where two sessions that I wanted to attend were concurrent.
My favorite sessions were PLMW, Energy & Performance, and the two Down to the Metal sessions. Specifically, I thought Programming with Estimates by James Bornholt and GreenWeb: Language Extensions for Energy-Efficient Mobile Web Computing by Yuhao Zhu were particularly well-delivered talks. In addition to the great banquet, all of the lunches and breakfasts were good and I met many researchers that I had not run into to before. Thank you to all of the presenters, attendees, and other volunteers for making PLDI 2016 successful!
