I spent last week in beautiful Bordeaux, France, attending EuroSys 2015 and the affiliated PaPoC workshop. This was my first EuroSys, as well as my first nontrivial trip to France, and I had a tremendously good time. I served on the PaPoC program committee and got to chair a session at the workshop as well.1
It was a very well-attended workshop — we filled the room and even had to bring in extra chairs! Here are a couple of talks that I particularly liked.
