LispNYC April Meeting

Live from Germany, Michael Bohn presents: Acheron, Common Lisp's Google Web Toolkit

Acheron compiles [a subset of] Common Lisp directly to JavaScript where it can be executed natively in nearly any web browser.

Similar to the strategy implemented by the Google Web Toolkit, Acheron allows you to avoid the perils of JavaScript and use tools such as a REPL in this interesting new JavaScript compiler.

Michael Bohn studied computer science at the Trier University of Applied Sciences, Germany and he now works there as a researcher of real-time systems and static program analysis.   Michael dedicated both his bachelor and masters thesis to Lisp topics: Dandelion (a Eclipse-based editor for Common Lisp) and Acheron.

This is our first presentation webcast live at 7:00 EST, 11:00 UTC at (no webcast registration needed)
