Persistent Data Structures and Managed References

October 28th, 2009 9 comments

Speaking of interesting videos, Stuart Halloway has been beating the drum pretty hard for Rich Hickey‘s talk: Persistent Data Structures and Managed References. I was actually in the audience (along with Glenn Vanderburg) when Rich gave this talk at QCon London and I concur with Stu – this is something you’re going to want to watch. A couple of times. Then watch it again. You’ll thank me (and Stu) later. Oh, and you really should go to QCon. I mean it, it’s a great show with some unique talks.

DSLs in JavaScript Video

October 13th, 2009 8 comments

The video of my DSLs in JavaScript talk [slides - pdf] from QCon is now available on the InfoQ site; many thanks to all those who have written me or tweeted links, I appreciate it! I can’t say enough good things about QCon, it’s a great show with some amazing talks – if you have a chance to go, you really should. But, if getting to London or San Francisco (two of my absolutely favorite cities) isn’t on the radar screen, the next best thing is watching the fantastic videos you’ll find posted regularly on InfoQ. Enjoy!
