Lisping on Millions of Devices: Mobile Code at Scale

Details

Hello, Hacker Ladies & Gentlemen!

Please join us for a talk by Wes Henderson, creator of mocl, a Lisp implementation for iOS and Android.

Abstract: It's hard enough to create proof-of-concept mobile applications, let alone ones that scale to the masses. We discuss some of the practical challenges of developing mobile code that must run across millions of heterogeneous devices.

Bio: Wes Henderson is a Lead Software Engineer at Factual. Prior to joining Factual, Wes created mocl, a Lisp implementation for iOS and Android, as well as LambdaLite, a functional, relational database. Wes has been a founder at two technology startups and holds a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

We won't have time for lightning talks this time because we don't have the room for long enough.

Please note that this talk will not be recorded.

This meeting is being held jointly with Biolisp. Thanks very much to Bohdan Khomtchouk, organizer of Biolisp, for organizing the meeting and securing the meeting space at Stanford.
