Lang.NET Symposium

I'm enjoying Microsoft's Lang.NET Symposium. Lars Bak just told us about the V8 JavaScript engine. As usual with his work, the virtues are overall simplicity, with a few careful choices about what to optimize. (The recipe is fixnums + stateful Self-like hidden classes + monomorphic inline caches + generational GC + simple JIT.) Here's the slide deck for my talk (up next) on new JVM features.

May 8 update: After the conference I enjoyed a video chat with Charles Torre of Microsoft Channel 9 about the Da Vinci Machine Project. Charles has posted a number of very good interviews from Lang.NET; check out those with Lars, Gilad, Anders, and Erik. Also, the Lang.NET organizers have posted synchronized slides and audio of the talks.
