Growing a Language by Guy Steele

This is an amazing funny video about programming languages.

This was a keynote by Guy Steele at The ACM SIGPLAN Conference OOPSLA'98.

For those confused by the acronyms:

  • ACM - Association for Computing Machinery (A professional organization for people in technology)
  • SIGPLAN - Special Interest Group on Programming Language (An ACM group for programmers)
  • OOPSLA - Object-Oriented Programming Systems, Languages & Applications (An annual conference that ACM SIGPLAN hosts)
