Program Synthesis is an area of Programming Languages concerned with automatically generating programs from high-level and possibly incomplete descriptions, such as input-output examples, logical formulas, and even natural language. Program Synthesis today is a very diverse and vibrant research area, and the goal of this talk is to give you a taste of this diversity by introducing a handful of Big Ideas, which shaped the area and influenced my own research.
