Lightweight Languages 2004 (LL4)

Dec. 4, 2004
MIT, Cambridge MA

LL4 will be an intense, exciting, one-day forum bringing together the best programming language implementors and researchers, from both academia and industry, to exchange ideas and information, to challenge one another, and to learn from one another.

The workshop series focuses on programming languages, tools, and processes that are usable and useful. Lightweight languages have been an effective vehicle for introducing new features to mainstream programmers.
