Our very own Senior Architect, Richard Astbury took centre stage as keynote speaker on Saturday 27th February with a talk entitled “The State of the Art”.
Richard demonstrated four programming languages from the 1970s, demonstrating many powerful features pioneered 40 years ago, which mainstream languages today don’t have.
The conference was a lot of fun! Demonstrating programming languages live on stage is always a risk, but I think people enjoyed learning about the technology landscape, as it was in 1976.
