SIGPLAN-M is SIGPLAN’s international long-term mentoring program. Initiated in late 2020 by Talia Ringer, it now has over 200 mentors and over 300 mentees. Everybody in the community — from aspiring undergraduate to experienced faculty — is welcome to take part either as a mentor or as a mentee (or both). For this edition of People of PL, John Wickerson met three of SIGPLAN-M’s mentors to find out about their experiences.
The Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop (PLMW) is directed at new members of the PL community: senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students. With its first edition taking place in January 2012, PLMW is coming up on its ten year anniversary. We take a look back at how PLMW has grown and evolved, and imagine where it could go next.
