Lightweight Languages Workshop 2001
MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab, Cambridge MA, Saturday, November 17, 2001

Lightweight languages have proven to be the most effective vector for getting innovative language features into the hands of working programmers.

We use the term "lightweight languages" to describe some of the common features of these new languages. The term "lightweight" refers not to actual functionality, but to the idea that these languages are easy to acquire, learn, and use. Examples that would fall into this category include Perl, Python, Ruby, Scheme (and scsh), and Curl.

The participants list looks promising, but beware the fun activities.

The workshop will be webcast live. AFAIK the webcast will also be archived for later viewing.

The webcast will be here eventually, or so it seems.

The DDJ review of the LL1 workshop gives a nice perspective.
