This is an article I wanted to write in 2013, but failed. In 2013, I only produced the following slides (using org-mode), for an ASDF "tutorial" at ELS 2013: els-slides.org
- do something with the aborted tutorial material in obsolete/ or remove it.
- complete the essay on Live Programming vs Cult of Dead programming, in ltu_culture_war.scrbl, then write a presentation about it.
- complete the presentation in traverse-slides.rkt on the story of bug that begat ASDF 3, exploring subtleties in the ASDF dependency model, and a surprising conclusion. (My article's Appendix F)
- Maybe have a presentation on a laundry list of new features in ASDF 3.1 since ASDF 2 ? Meh.
