College is about to get over in a week and I feel participating in XMC’21 was the perfect farewell. The entire event was top-notch with a great speaker line-up and the organising team was very well-coordinated. Estrellado was competitive but innovative and fun at the same time. The three days taught me a lot and gave me memories worth cherishing.
