The next meeting of BayPIGgies will be Thurs September 9 at 7:30pm. It
will feature a presentation about pyscheme by Danny Yoo. Haven't had
time to update the web site, so here's Danny's summary:
o A quick introduction to Scheme, and how it's similar to Python.
o A sketch of how pyscheme works.
o Demo of the program itself.
o Discussion on a core problem when implementing Scheme in Python:
- Python's recursion limit.
- How to deal with it: bouncing functions on trampolines.
o Maybe even continuations, if I haven't lost the audience by then.
BayPIGgies meetings are in Stanford, California. For more information
