This summer school introduces attendees to the Racket way of language-oriented programming and language building.
The table below presents a concise summer school schedule. Most sessions will consist of a lecture part and a hands-on lab. Our goal is to lecture for less than 90 minutes and to give you at least 120 minutes of lab time. The lectures will introduce basic ideas. The labs will provide you with a chance to get your hands dirty with practical exercises on the lecture topics.
After a brief motivational overview lecture on Monday morning, the first four days are dedicated to the corner stones of building languages: compile-time functions, languages as modules, typed languages, and ugly syntax. On Friday, we will slow down a bit: Jay McCarthy, Matthew Flatt, Robby Findler, and Matthew Butterick will give lectures on some of the languages they have built, and you will have a chance to ask questions/talk to the staff in the long breaks.
Morning (9:00 – 12:30)
Afternoon (13:30 – 17:00)
