1st speaker:

Write Now, Run Anytime - Neil C Smith

Neil is developer of PraxisLIVE, an open-source hybrid-visual IDE for
live programming, built on top of the NetBeans platform. While the IDE
is primarily aimed at creative coders, its underlying forest-of-actors
runtime supports real-time coding Java in general. PraxisCORE brings
aspects of Erlang, Smalltalk and Extempore into the Java world,
providing a powerful platform for media processing, data
visualisation, sensors, robotics, IoT, and lots more! We will explore
some of the trials and tribulations of designing a just-in-time
programming system in Java, including actors, classloaders and
reactive dataflows, with the aid of some hypnotic visuals and bleepy

Neil may be unique amongst Java developers in regularly live-coding
lambdas in venues to make breakbeat music. The talk may end with a
short demo!

Neil C Smith is an Artist & Technologist from Oxford, UK. An artist
working with code, he builds interactive spaces & projections, and
improvised & live-coded performances. A technologist with a creative
edge, he is lead developer of PraxisLIVE, maintains various Java media
libraries including the bindings for GStreamer, and is an Apache
NetBeans committer.
