Simon Garland: KPL
Most APL users have heard of k, but very few have come into contact with it. Simon Garland from Kx will talk about the history of k and give examples of how and where people use it to handle very large data volumes.
K (and more recently q) will be immediately familiar to APL users and yet on closer inspection there are interesting differences - we'll look at some of those and the reasons why some un-APL-like choices were made.
Richard Nabavi: APL, C#, and Ruby: can they live happily together?
Richard Nabavi will discuss some of the new features being developed for APLX Version 4. Included in the presentation will be the first public showing of MicroAPL's language extensions for easy access to the .Net languages and to fashionable object-oriented scripting languages such as Ruby.
Fred Waid: APL Next – Visual APL
Integrated with Visual Studio, Visual APL puts a session into Visual Studio, so exploring .Net is now as easy as using your APL session. Of course, Visual APL is also a first class .Net language which creates CLS compliant assemblies and makes use of no unsafe code. Whether it is taking advantage of the Forms Designer, WebProject Designer, ClickOnce deployment or a host of other designers and features in Visual Studio, or simply writing traditional APL code, Visual APL moves APL into the future, ready for Vista, Avalon, 64 bit and all of the new technologies Microsoft is releasing this year. Visual APL is also cross platform compatible, so taking advantage of a new Macintosh or Linux machine for development or deployment is now a reality.
