Guy Steele, Douglas Crockford, Josh Bloch, Alex Payne, Bruce Tate, and Ted Neward (moderator) hold a discussion on the future of programming. Topics included: the future beyond functional, running JVM/CLR on many cores, what is the future of type checking and type systems, languages for education, comparing DSLs and ubiquitous languages, proving code correctness, functional and parallelism.


Guy Steele was involved in the creation or standardization of Lisp, Scheme, C, Fortran, EcmaScript, Java, and Fortress. Douglas Crockford is the author of "JavaScript: The Good Parts", the creator of JSON. Josh Bloch led the design of core parts of the JDK. Alex Payne is the co-author of Programming Scala. Bruce Tate is author of "Seven Languages in Seven Weeks".

Strange Loop is a developer-run software conference. Innovation, creativity, and the future happen in the magical nexus "between" established areas. Strange Loop eagerly promotes a mix of languages and technologies in this nexus, bringing together the worlds of bleeding edge technology, enterprise systems, and academic research. Of particular interest are new directions in data storage, alternative languages, concurrent and distributed systems, front-end web, semantic web, and mobile apps.
