The speaker will present on Shen, the Lisp stunt-double that other languages wish they had! It is one of the most innovative statically- AND dynamically-typed languages around, and by not picking a side, is more powerful and flexible than both. HLists? Cake. Type migration at runtime? No problem! Embedding another language, syntax and all seamlessly into Shen code? Done. Hate playing type-tetris with some random API? Want to parse the API and have a Prolog do it for you? Better Send Shen! The talk will cover these tricks and more with complete code examples. Shen knowledge is not required. Although this is NOT an introductory talk, it should be easy to pick up for experienced programmers. Familiarity with Lisp and or statically-types languages like Scala and Haskell will help.
