One of the most exciting presentations in the International Lisp Conference 2009 is now available at: http://www.cs.brown.edu/~sk/Publications/Talks/Moby-Bootstrap/
In March 2009 I gave a keynote talk at the International Lisp Conference. The talk was ostensibly about Moby, a Scheme compiler for smartphones (the talk’s sub-title was Is That a Parenthesis in Your Pocket?), but I was trying to talk about a much larger set of topics, including Bootstrap, a curricular program, and World, the PLT Scheme system for reactive functional programming.
Here are the slides (PPT, 3.5Mb). For those without PowerPoint, I’ve uploaded the slides to slideshare. This version misses the animations in the slides, but will still give you the essential content.
Here is the accompanying audio (MP3, 14.5Mb), which you’ll need to follow the talk. Warning: the audio is a bit loud because I had the microphone pretty close to me (and was speaking without a room mic to a fairly large room). Start with the volume low!
Thanks to Danny Yoo for converting the audio from WMA to MP3.
