Dyalog ’13 so far has impressed, and not just because of the amazing weather.
Below are just some of the highlights,
Dyalog V14 seems to be another massive improvement over 13.2 with the inclusion of experimental Isolates and futures which will allow ‘deterministic’ parallelism code allowing it to run on multiple processors.
Remote Integrated Development Environment
Syncfusion is a library of elegant WPF UI elements that are written in XAML and will be shipped with Dyalog 14. Syncfusion when used in conjunction with Databinding will hopefully allow for a new breed of attractive native windows applications with more ‘modern’ UI’s hopefully without to much overhead for the programmer.
A robot workshop was held where the Italians battled ‘The rest of the world’ to write a algorithm to navigate a maze the knew nothing about, which resulted in a hilarious showdown as the evenings entertainment – check the Dyalog website in the coming weeks for the video!
Paul Grosvenor did an excellent presentation of COSMOS – Optima Systems ‘BIG’ data visualisation tool talking about performance improvements. Gitte commented she always hoped for an application that would ‘make APL famous’ and is confident this could be the one that achieves it.
Great thanks to Dyalog and all the presenters so far for putting on such a good conference!
