    Hello people!

    The presenter was presenting himself ?
    I could not see the slides.
    Next time, be cautious, you have to focus on the slides too.

    Sincerelly.

  • Presentation skills?

    Why are these senior and experienced people so bad at presentations? He's about as engaging as a wet towel. Bullet points and text everywhere, he's reading the slides, bad graphics, no passion, no audience interaction. This is a great example of how to send your audience to sleep. Just give out the slides and sit down, your presence is completely unnecessary until you learn how to present.

  • E language and AsyncScala

    Nice presentation and gives a good overview of Actor-based frameworks.

    But it fails to mention one of most usable languages for asynchronous programming: E (www.erights.org). It uses more fine grained asynchronous components (Actor = Vat in E, asynchronous componets live in Vat) because of this, much there are much more scenarios where memory could be safely shared between components.

    There was a presentation on this language on infoq.com: www.infoq.com/presentations/From-E-to-EcmaScript

    I have also implemented concepts from E in Scala (asyncobjects.sf.net/asyncscala).

    This is not true. This is a technical presentation and no marketing bla bla. I like the style.
