Collaborative articulation of how abstraction and language is employed in the computational manifestation of numbers -- including analysis of the role of syntax, semantics, and meaning in the specification and use of software interfaces.
Preparing for the Lang.NET Symposium
Lang.NET Symposium Agenda. The agenda for lang.NET is available and I am using this delightful Sunday afternoon to prepare for three days in Redmond. The first project is working out the bus routes and schedules between West Seattle and the Microsoft Campus. Then I’ll prepare Quadro, my Tablet PC, with materials I wish I had already dug into but I just might while there. This is a bit like filling my luggage with books to read and then bringing them home still unread after a short vacation. I need to move some of my functional-programming and computation-theory materials to Quadro anyhow, so the housekeeping will be good for me. And I do like reading while commuting by bus.
My main interest is the content for the three days, although it will be interesting to actually see the Microsoft Store. Being in Building 20, the home of Port25, will also be interesting. It is also remarkable that this event was scheduled to take advantage of people already traveling to be at OSCON last week.
And then there’s the content. Before there was an agenda, I was intrigued by organizer Erik Meijer’s involvement and his background with Haskell. I’ve always wanted to understand Haskell’s treatment of imperative and interactive activity. My
It is a desire to become more immersed in these topics that had me install F# recently, download the latest Mono bits, make sure I have the ECMA C# and CLI specifications, and be looking forward to the following sessions:
There’s more, including Open Spaces sessions, but I’m already running on overdose.
If I blog about any of these sessions and other activities, I will doubtless split my posts between Numbering Peano and Professor von Clueless, depending on which way I tilt during the session.
