Pike Users Worldwide Converge on Essen This Week
This years largest Pike event will be the Pike Camp in Essen, Germany from
October 13th through the 19th.
Users and developers of the Pike Language will be arriving in Essen from all
over the world, including Sweden, USA, Latvia, Hungary, Austria, France and
Germany for a week of talks, technical workshops and tutorials. Included in the
week's events are the 3rd annual Pike Conference, 2nd annual Caudium
conference, sTeam developer day and PSYC MODIv: the 5th PSYC modification
event. This year's keynote will be delivered by Uwe Aßmann, Chair of Software
Engineering at Technical University of Dresden, on "Pike between UML and Java:
a use case in University Education."
All users and developers interested in Pike and its applications, including
those new to Pike, are encouraged to attend any portion of the event. Beginner
Pike tutorials will be held every day.
Registration is ongoing, and more information is available from the Camp and
Conference websites, found below.
Pike is a dynamic programming language with a syntax similar to Java and C. It
is simple to learn, does not require long compilation passes and has powerful
built-in data types allowing simple and really fast data manipulation. Pike is
a reimplementation of the LPC language, its application domain spans anything
from the world of the Net to the world of multimedia applications, or
environments where your shell could use some spicy text processing or system
administration tools. Your imagination sets the limit, but Pike will probably
extend it far beyond what you previously considered within reach.
