I’m still recovering from the week of Program By Design, followed immediately with RacketCon. My feet are meant for walking, not standing.
Unfortunately, I was so nervous during the beginning of the talk, that I rushed my example about a slideshow being itself a world program into incoherence. I’ll have to watch myself when the videos come out, grimace, and hope to do better next time. I think folks got a kick out of the JQuery example.
Other items to note:
- The second day unfortunately suffered from a lack of air conditioning.
- Jay McCarthy showed a kick-butt example of game programs written with World. My ears are still ringing with the thump of the video game music.
- Marco Morazan showed how to teach A* to first-year undergrads. Awesome.
- Matthew Flatt talked about the history and future of Racket. He brought his magic 8-ball with him.
Ok, better get back to work and get Whalesong ready…
