New Berkeley Prelim Syllabus
I volunteered to help rethink the language design portion of the Berkeley prelim syllabus this week. Increasing the challenge is that we're cutting down from 60+ articles from before to only 36. We're shooting for about 6 core technical papers, and hoping there will be overlap with other areas (e.g., semantics, type theory, verification, optimization).
I'll try to post soon about some of the fun PL design / analysis / optimization work I've been doing. We just finished a camera ready for a workshop but I won't be writing up any of my bigger papers (SIMD tree layouts, multicore scheduling, CSS semantics / layout engine synthesis, and adoption-oriented languages) until later this year. Need to kickstart the writing process :)
