PLDI 2016 was a blast, attended many interesting talks at PLDI and ISMM. Also enjoyed attending a couple of tutorials, mainly "One VM to Rule Them All, One VM to Bind Them" which I enjoyed a lot. It was fun to meet up with fellow researches in the field. Volunteering at PLDI has many perks. Been able to fellowship closely with fellow volunteers was most profound for me. I would definitely encourage fellow students to volunteer at PLDI and other academic conferences to enjoy the experience.
