ECOOP Retrospective (by Titus Barik)Wed 17 Aug 2016

Through my research in HCI and software engineering tools, I typically make the annual rounds in conferences such as ICSE, FSE, and VL/HCC. Thus, having the opportunity to attend ECOOP 2016 was definitely outside of my comfort area, but it was worthwhile in that it provided me with exposure to a …

Post-ECOOP (by William J. Bowman)Thu 11 Aug 2016

I returned from ECOOP a few weeks ago, and have been trying to figure out what I got of the experience. I’ll focus on two big things.

For a long time I have been debating what I should do after I graduate, which I usually phrase as “industry vs academia”. I’m coming to understand this is a fals …

Post-ECOOP (by Benjamin Greenman)Wed 10 Aug 2016

ECOOP was a great experience. Thank you organizers for hiring so many volunteers!
