Reed Spool - Concrete: A baby programming language

From the creator of the useless "URL Programming Language" comes the next pile of junk: "Concrete".

Simple language with some interesting quirks, for example: "3 2 + _" resolves to "3 2 + 5". Read more about the silliness here:

I'll walk through its construction entirely in Node.js, from the Peg.js parser, through the Bacon.JS guts, all the way to the Webpack'd web editor: Perhaps simulating/actually implementing an actual feature on our journey.


We're looking for speakers! It's OK if you've never spoken before or if you've spoken hundreds of times, we want to hear from you!

We're looking for talks about anything interesting to programmers, come share about your favorite language or framework, or learn something new and talk about how it went! We're hoping for talks about anything but here are a few things members have mentioned wanting to learn about recently: Go, C, C++, Haskell, Erlang, and Elixir.

Contact Josh on the left or through whatever means you have :)
