It’s my source of cool East African IT news. I’ll try to republish good stuff here, and in my Delicious bookmarks feed. Some stories need some […]

Thorn presentation at JAOO

Perhaps your next programming language? Thorn. (A JVM scripting language.) John Field’s talk at JAOO in Ã…rhus 2009 is about that. Here is the interesting blurb from that page: Scripting languages are justifiably popular because of their support for rapid and exploratory development. However, scripts are notoriously hard to compose and to evolve. Additionallly, though […]
