End of term

I can’t believe we’ve arrived at the end-of-term again already! I’ll be taking a
four-week break from writing The Morning Paper, normal service resumes on Monday
19th August. A big milestone will slip quietly by during this recess – it was
five years ago on the 30th July 2014 that I read and shared the very
first paper in this current streak of paper reading. In case you’re wondering,
that paper was "Why functional programming matters" (revisited again on
the blog 2 years later). In terms of published posts, we’re also
rapidly approaching the 1,000 posts/papers mark! I wonder what amazing research
developments the next five years might bring us??!

There are so many interesting papers published all the time, and I can only
cover the tiniest fraction of them on The Morning Paper. If you still feel in
need of your regular paper fix over the next few weeks, then a great exercise is
to think back to a paper you particularly enjoyed, see where it was published,
and then go look through the proceedings to discover what else is there you
might like.

For example, let’s say you enjoyed ‘Designing far memory data structures: think
outside the box
.’ That paper was published at HotOS’19, which had an
incredible crop of papers this year. Taking a scroll through the
HotOS’19 program, you’ll find plenty more really interesting papers
that it pains me I didn’t have the time to cover (yet?). For example:

Happy hunting, and I’ll see you a few weeks time!

Regards, Adrian.
