Please Check Your Guns at the Door /C'Dent, the Acmeism and Everyone/ by Ingy döt Net The status quo of OSDC and OSCON conferences is to attract the best programmers from the most exciting programming languages, bring them all to one tropical venue far several days, and let them go off into their own corners to discuss their own technology, in isolation from everyone else. Ingy döt Net believes that programming languages act as barriers to the growth of the hacker community and that truly great hackers rise above the language barrier level, and produce technology that serves all the languages. He calls this belief "Acmeism". In this hour long talk, Ingy will discuss the tenets of Acmeism and why you, young hacker, should believe it with all your heart. Once he is confident that you have checked your favorite programming artillery at the OSDC Gun Check Window, he will attempt to convert you by hypnotizing your hacker brain with these shiny and sexy Acmeist projects: * C'Dent - A new module programming language (made from old ones like yours) * TestML - A common unit test framework for every language * ParseOpt.cd - Acmeist command options parser module, written in C'Dent * YAML - An acmeist data serialization language * Jemplate - An acmeist templating framework * pQuery - Acmeist server-side jQuery ---- About Ingy Ingy döt Net is a hacker who started programming in Assembler on punchcards, switched over to Perl and has since become enlightened to the goodness of all the OSDC languages and the people who hack, support and evangelize them. He is one of the creators of YAML, a major CPAN contributor, the father of Acmeism and is drinking a double americano as you read this. Ingy is a citizen of the Earth who currently lives in Seattle and visits Taiwan every chance he can. He loves to make things DRY.
