Three talks in one:
- The power of limits: Partial continuations in Scheme
- Guile in 2012: A look back at 2.0, a look forward to 2.2
The power of limits: Partial continuations in Scheme
I’ll describe what delimited continuations are, how they are better than call/cc, and then go on to demonstrate and describe an event-based cooperative threading system built with delimited continuations, showing how it makes for much clearer code. I’ll show a simple implementation of the memcached protocol.
Guile in 2012: A look back at 2.0, a look forward to 2.2
It will briefly summarize the 2.0 release series of Guile, how it went, what worked well and what didn’t. Then we’ll look forward to the next cycle, which is probably some 6 months away.
