I have no idea whether PDT is UTC-7 or UTC-8. I left it on the default. I meant "2pm in Mountain View," whatever the correct time zone for that is. :) Dave
PDT is UTC-7

Dave, Can you give me a description for the Air Mozilla page for this event? "Standard slide-deck" talk is a bit generic.
Practical Programming with Substructural Types Jesse A. Tov Harvard University Alms is a general-purpose programming language that supports practical substructural types. Substructural types allow the type system to keep track of how many times some values are used, which enables type checking for a variety of resource management protocols found in special-purpose type systems such as typestate and session types. Previous substructural type systems were either tailored for managing a specific type of resource, or were general purpose but theoretical and unwieldy. Alms uses several novel type system features to make substructural types lightweight and convenient, and thus significantly more practical for writing actual programs. In this talk I discuss the design of Alms and show examples of the style of programming that it enables.
Event has been added to the brownbag calendar. AV setup and assistance will be provided.
