@androidi: Yes... Much easier said than done... For one thing, the venue did not have an audio system with output (meaning we couldn't attach our gear to the audio channel....). Second, there is no easy way to provide a lav to each member of a panel that large unless you have a large audio mixer on hand and lots of lavs.... We were lucky to have one HD camera, some lights and Golnaz.
If you're interested in functional programming, then there is no better way to learn it than by taking an introductory course by Erik Meijer. You'll be educated and entertained at the same time.
Sign up to take (or even audit) the official course here: https://www.edx.org/course/delftx/delftx-fp101x-introduction-functional-2126#.U49CfY1OWpq
... and so are shallow thinkers....
Swift looks like a great language on the surface (haven't installed the tools yet, just read through the online documentation). Such a treat to know that I may not have to look at Obj-C code ever again... It's not that I don't like Obj-C... I hate it.
Breath of very fresh air!
@felix9: As of right now, it's me. I'd like to begin by asking them why they took the approach they did/do for their respective languages. That's a softball starter, but will be interesting given the languages represented: C++, D, Go, Rust... As always, I will make sure the language designers in the room ask the most questions. The actual title of the panel is Systems Languages in 2014 and Beyond. Feel free to ask questions here and I'll make sure to ask the good ones :)
