LL2 Webcast
The Lightweight Languages 2002 conference (reported previously) will be Webcast live on the 'net. The videos will also be made available on the conference webside afterwards, for those who can't tune in live.

Got it. Raining outside. Nice day to be in front of the tube.

RealPlayer on Linux really sucks :-)

Todd Proebsting, Disruptive Programming Language Technologies (older but quite similar slides)

Oh man - the lectures look interesting but viewing them is sure a pain. RealPlayer is no pleasure and especially distributing them via an RTSP server makes it impossible to download them first and view them after that, with a not-very-consistent internet connection the stream is skipping and halting all the time.

For next year, how's about just distributing MPEGs, one per lecture? Please? :-)

Matz's definition of LL is very interesting: Lightweight language = language that requires less brain power! A very entertaining and enlightening talk. (Other good ones I liked include Armstrong on Erlang/COP and Proebsting's).

I thought Matz's definition was especially interesting in that it was about how much brain power you need to use over time. Usually when people measure these things, they talk about the slope of the learning curve, not the area under the curve over time. I think the latter is a much more useful metric, as it avoids dumbing down a language, while also avoiding insurmountable "peaks".

This Advogato diary entry is from Itamar Shtull-Trauring who was one of the people there. The most interesting thing is his critique of the asynchronous exceptions in python idea. Hopefully the slides for this talk will be up soon.

Yes, that did look intruiging. You may want to look at the work on async exceptions in Haskell (somewhere on the LtU archives).
