Rocky Bernstein: Large Scale Software Development with Elisp

He lives in relative obscurity yet his software is used daily by millions. Rocky Bernstein, former IBM Researcher, Chaitin co-author and 30 year developer walks us through a mosaic of development techniques focusing on personal software scalability.

The long time Free Software developer is best known for his decade of debugger development using Emacs Grand Unified Debugger as a front-end for his other works:

  • Ruby Debugger (ruby-debug)
  • Python Debugger (pydb)
  • Perl Debugger
  • POSIX Shell Debuggers for bash, Korn Shell, zsh and GNU Make

Additionally, Rocky is the author of libcdio: the GNU CD I/O and ControlLibrary. Allowing multimedia assessing of CD-images (includingISO-9660) in an OS and device-independent way, it is used in FreeBSD, NetBSD and nearly every Linux distribution.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
