Thought some of you would be interested...

Wednesday, June 10, 2009 - Doors @6pm Talk @6:30
Location - ThoughtWorks, 200 E Randolph St. 25th Floor

Ioke is a new language, an experiment to see how expressive a language can
be. It's a language for the JVM influenced by Io, Self, Smalltalk, Lisp and
Ruby. It supports a prototype based object oriented system, is homoiconic,
supports high level methods and macros and makes it easy to build DSLs and
new abstractions from scratch. The presentation will first talk about the
motivation for a new language, then talk about some of the more interesting
features of Ioke, including the object system, the macro system and java
integration features.
