The “video” (basically audio plus slides) for this talk is up. To view it, go here:
and click the link in the “Media” section in the right-hand sidebar. Unfortunately the slide download link on that page is broken. I’ve posted the slides here as an alternative.
If you attended the talk and have feedback, I’d love to hear it in the comments.
I have to admit to having some concerns about this talk. Brian Goetz had two lambda talks (The Road to Lambda and Lambda: A Peek Under The Hood) which cover the territory pretty well. However, Brian is a veritable fire hose of information, and he covered a lot of material — perhaps too much — in two short hours. In contrast, in this talk, I covered perhaps a tenth of the territory in one hour. (I guess that makes me a sippy straw instead of a fire hose.) During the Road to Lambda talk, Brian put up a slide that pretty much covered the material here. I thought, “Well, he just stole my entire talk in one slide.” Then I heard the guy behind me mutter, “This stuff makes my brain hurt.” So maybe there’s room for a different, and more methodical treatment of the material. If this worked or didn’t work, please let me know!
