As new problems in computing arise, new languages are being created to help tackle those problems. We want to bring together programming language creators, researchers, and enthusiasts to share goals, experiences, and challenges. Our goal is advancing the state of the art in programming language design and implementation. We’ll share best practices, disasters, and everything in between. Expect great networking and inspiration.
We are holding the first-ever Emerging Languages Camp Wednesday, July 21st and Thursday, July 22nd in Room F150 at OSCON. This is a free event, but attendance is limited to 120 people. The first day will be a set of talks from the creators of the languages. The second day will be an unconference that will allow attendees and language maintainers to have more in-depth conversations. We will start each morning after the OSCON keynotes at 10:40AM. You can track our progress at http://emerginglangs.com.
How can I reach the organizers?
