Damian Conway in Lisbon - Fun with Dead Languages

*UPDATE*: You can now register to attend Fun with Dead Languages at http://funwithdeadlanguages.eventbrite.com/.

 

For those of you in Lisbon, you might want to check SAPO's developers blog.

 

Damian Conway, author of books such as Perl Best Practices and Object Oriented Perl, one of the most prestiged persons of the Perl world, will be in Lisbon in a couple of weeks.

 

On the evening of August 8th we'll have the pleasure of having Damian giving a free talk in the center of Lisbon:

 

Fun with Dead Languages

 

Watch in mesmerized terror as Damian hacks code in five unrelated languages (none of them Perl). Along the way, you'll also learn about modern archaeological techniques, bidirectional cross- dressing, Ancient Greeks hackers, improbable romances, the real Club Med, why programmers shouldn't frequent casinos, the language of moisture vaporators, C++ mysticism, conversational Latin, state machines on steroids, feeding the dog the old-fashioned way, the shocking truth about anime, programming without variables or subroutines, the Four Voids of the Apocalypse, Microsoft's new advertising campaign, what the Romans used instead of braces, drunken stonemasons, the ancient probabilistic wisdom of bodkins, how to kill a language with a single byte, and the price of fish.

 

More information on how to attend will show up soon on the developers blog.
