March PLUG Meeting: Parrot
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Location: Omniture, Inc.
We were unable to get Stephen Weeks in January due to last second scheduling conflicts. We have invited him back, and he will be our presenter this month. He will be discussing the Parrot VM. From Stephen...
Guru at Guru Labs for 1.5 years. I teach, work on courseware, and assorted Perl programming. In my spare time I work on Parrot and recently a roguelike. I've been working on Parrot for about a year, in which time I've written a LOLCODE and Ruby compiler and done a lot of work on Exceptions and some work implementing features in Perl 6.
I'd like to talk about Parrot and/or Perl 6! That's about as specific as I get. If nobody has any more-specific requests, I'd like to run through implementing a simple language and the parts of a Parrot compiler. Maybe scheme? I haven't decided yet.
Come and learn about this highly versatile VM. See you there!
