Quick notes on stuff from POSSCON last month that I still want to follow up on:

  • FreedomBox
  • ql.io - map APIs to SQL-like syntax. Cute. Useful?
  • The Rust Programming Language - "Rust is a curly-brace, block-structured expression language. It visually resembles the C language family, but differs significantly in syntactic and semantic details. Its design is oriented toward concerns of “programming in the large”, that is, of creating and maintaining boundaries – both abstract and operational – that preserve large-system integrity, availability and concurrency."
  • Firefox OS - mobile Firefox remains kind of flaky, at least on Android, but there's some legitimately interesting work being done here.
