Who is Brent Noorda, and why is he doing this session?
- Scripting advocate for 5 long years
have been advocating scripting as the next level in making computers usable since 1992, when I created the Cmm language.
- Firsts for Brent and Nombas
was first to introduce a script language as powerful as C, including all of the libraries, yet simple and useful by average folk.
First to add client-side scripting to web pages.
First with remotely-debuggable, fully integratable server-side scripting.
First with distributed scripting to extend script-gluing across networked computers.
First to think a company could be built around the sole purpose of providing scripting to the world.
If you think I'm blowing my horn too much here (I forgot to mention that I used to be a pretty good trumpet player), then get your own session to prepare for and present to.
