Fan and Fortress at the Lambda Lounge

29 Jun 2009

This month at the Lambda Lounge (Thursday, July 2nd, 6 pm), we will be bringing you two NEW languages that start with F.

First, I will be introducing you to a research language called Fortress aimed at people doing scientific computation on large (peta-size) systems. It is a language that explicitly tries to meet the challenge of running systems up to a million cores and is “infested” with parallelism. This is a language for tomorrow.

Next, Scott Bale will be talking about the Fan programming language. This language takes the best of languages like Java and C#, throws out the cruft, and bleeds in some modern features. Is it the next Java? Java++? Come find out…

Should be a great night with two languages making their debut at the Lounge.
