Java Annotations for Types, Expressions and Multi-Staging

I gave another presentation in our PLT seminar today. The title was “Annotations for Types and Expressions”, but I really should have squeezed multi-stage programming (MSP) in there, because that was really the big benefit I want to achieve from adding annotations to expressions and statements.

I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather the last couple of days, so it makes me very happy to think the presentation went well. I got some good feedback again, mainly that I should have advertised the MSP part more. Someone also said that I have a “soothing voice”, which doesn’t aid in keeping tired audience members awake. I need to work on my vocal variety.

I spent the rest of the day grading the COMP 202 midterm and doing some maintenance for the course.
