One of the downsides of the Sun Labs open house is that I'm so busy giving demos and talks that I can't attend any of the other talks. One talk in particular that I was hoping to see was Guy Steele's talk on Fortress. Fortress promises to Do for Fortran what Java did for C. In particular:

  • A growable, open language
  • Components: management of large projects
  • Distributed data and control models
  • Type system organized as objects and "traits"
  • Advances in syntax

Fortunately, all of the public talks are now online. The audio and the slides for Guy's talk are available at the Sun Labs open house documentation kiosk. Worth checking out.
