New PL forums:

Hello, LtU Community,

I've built a new forum for the programming languages community,!

The forums software is well thought out, fast, and accessible. The forums support Markdown, TeX math, syntax highlighting, @-mentions, email notifications, a moderation system, and more. All of the above is done without requiring any JavaScript. The engine is MIT licensed and development happens in the open.

Later this year I will be inviting more researchers and engineers to post and participate in PL forums.
Today, I am asking the LtU community for feedback on the software and perhaps participation!

The engineering community can benefit from the research that is often light years ahead of the current practices. The research community can in turn benefit from lessons the engineering community learned the hard way. I've built PL forums because I want a well-designed space where theory and practice cross-pollinate.

You might know me from software such as Twitter Bootstrap, or various libraries for Ruby on Rails such as i18n-tasks (static analysis) and order_query (keyset pagination).

Thanks, Gleb
