Lang.NEXT is a programming languages conference, a geek festival for programming language designers and implementers from across the industry and academia. The goal is to share ideas and learn. The presentations, conversations, debates and arguments should prove quite enlightening.

Here, Event Chair Mads Torgersen, Speaker Chair Donna Malayeri and Iconoclast Erik Meijer join us to discuss the event, what it means, some who, some what. We go Old School.

Tune in.

The Discussion

  • User profile image

    Very interested to hear to what extent the 'managed' (in the broadest sense, and cross company) language folks presenting at Lang.NEXT this year acknowledge the movement away from computing platforms that are plugged into the wall for power. It's hard to ignore the runtime requirements behind some language designs and their implementations and unless one is specifically targeting server based logic, then not implicitly chaining users to their desks in order to use the functionality a language can potentially deliver is a major engineering design criteria for me these days.

    @felix9: I really enjoy LtU (I spend quite a bit of time there...) and the great information shared among PL experts and enthusiasts. To be perfectly clear.

    I was talking about the general disdain among the base LtU community (and PL academia in general) for C++, in particular... It's in some sense irrational, rational, PL designer status quo, reasonable and unreasonable all at the same time Smiley

    Having 3 native languages - D, C++, Go - represented at Lang.NEXT is just great! Kudos to the event owners for being open minded and inclusive.

    Rock and roll.

    Will there be any channel9 coverage for Lang.NEXT? I'm a language geek but I depend on channel9 for access and it would be such a shame if we didn't have some coverage for Lang.NEXT.


    nvm, just read the on the Lang.NEXT overview page that there be C9 recordings and interviews. Awesome!
