Dyalog APL Conference in Deerfield Beach
October 23, 2013 @ 8:00 am - October 24, 2013 @ 5:00 pm UTC-5
Worldwide conference on the APL programming language hosted by the company Dyalog of The United Kingdom. http://www.dyalog.com/dyalog_13/index.html
Many software developers might remember the introduction of a programming language that was first released in 1967 for the IBM 1130, an implementation of Dr. Ken Iverson’s 1957 book ‘A Programming Language’, APL
is far different than all programming languages today. It’s mathematical-like notation and powerful array processing capabilities lends itself to parallel processing of data instead of writing loops. Unbeknownst to most people, APL is alive and strong through a company in the UK. It is available for Windows, Unix and Linux systems and now free for the Raspberry Pi. Robots have been implemented using APL. A special rate of $25 per day for students in South Florida has been established. See the link for details on this conference.
