PLDI is just over for me. It was my first conference ever and I am happy to have met such wonderful people. The talks were interesting, especially Jean's "Precise, Dynamic Information Flow for Database-Backed Applications".
The SOAP workshop was particularly interesting to me, along with the SRC. That was a good first experience for presenting posters and giving presentations. All participants had very interesting topics to talk about. I was impressed by Byron Hawkins' work in particular.
I'm looking forward to Barcelona next year!
