Scheme UK Meeting: 9 February 2005

The next meeting of the Scheme UK user's group will be held
on Wednesday, 9 February 2005 from 7pm till we leave for the
pub. The meeting will take place at the offices of LShift
(see http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ).
This meeting will be held in conjuction with UK Lispers.

Laurence Tratt: The Converge programming language

Converge is a dynamic object orientated programming language
with compile-time meta-programming facilities and an
extendable syntax, designed and implemented by Laurence
Tratt. Mixing influences from Python, Icon, Template
Haskell, ObjVLisp, and others, into a coherent whole,
Converge is a powerful and modern programming language. More
information and early implementations can be found at
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

In this talk, I will present an overview of Converge, with
particular emphasis on its more novel aspects such as
compile-time meta-programming and its extendable syntax. I
will conclude with a list of some of the lessons learned
from designing and implementing such features into Converge
that could be applied to similar programming languages.

Laurence Tratt is a Teaching Fellow in the Department of
Computer Science at King's College London. He is an active
member of the OMG, and a member of the IEEE Software
Industry Advisory Board. His current research interests
include model transformations, domain specific languages,
and programming language design and implementation. His

John Kozak: Virtual Hardware

How do you test a device driver for hardware that
doesn't exist yet? Scheme comes to the rescue, in this
heartwarming tale of everyday bit-twiddling folk.
