H.O.P.E. -- Hack Once, Please Everyone -- C'Dent, the Acmeism and Everyone

Ingy döt Net believes that programming languages act as barriers to the growth of the worldwide hacker community and that truly great hackers rise above the language barrier level, and produce technology that serves all the languages. He calls this belief "Acmeism".

YAPC conferences are the best Perl events. They attract not only the smartest, but the most inventive, creative and fun Perl programmers worldwide. Unfortunately, they mostly talk just about Perl. OSDC and OSCON conferences attract the best programmers from the all the most exciting programming languages, only to watch them go off into corners to discus
s their own technology in isolation.

In this talk, Ingy will discuss the tenets of Acmeism and why you, young hacker, should believe it with all your heart. He will attempt to convert you by hypnotizing your Perl in
fused brain with these shiny and sexy Acmeist projects:

* C'Dent - A new programming language for writing modules once, that can be run in a dozen programming languages, including Perl 5 and Perl 6.
* TestML - A new unit test framework for writing tests once, that can be used in all the same programming environments as C'Dent.
* Stardoc - A new framework for writing documentation that is portable to the native doc systems of all the C'Dent languages.
