many thanks, aahz. turns out just this time
that Alex Martelli's talk on Abstraction will
take the entire time (and possibly then some
if there are searching questions).
we definitely need newbie nuggets for
subsequent meetings, so all of you who're
preparing, we'll need you in july and months
PS: here's alex' description of the talk:
Abstraction is a powerful servant, but a dangerous master. We code,
design, think, debug ... on a tower of abstractions. Spolsky's Law
tells us that "All abstractions leak". This talk explores why they
leak, why that's often a problem, what to do about it; I also cover
why sometimes abstractions SHOULD "leak", and how best to produce and
consume abstraction layers.
