Red on the Raspberry Pi

Kaj de Vos will show his work (in progress) to get the Red Programming Language running on the Raspberry Pi.

Red is a new programming language, strongly inspired by REBOL.

Main characteristics are:

  • Functional, imperative and symbolic
  • Prototype-based object support
  • Homoiconic (Red is its own meta-language)
  • Both statically and JIT-compiled to native code
  • Concurrency and parallelism strong support (actors, parallel collections)
  • Low-level system programming abilities through the built-in Red/System DSL
  • High-level scripting and REPL console support
  • Highly embeddable
  • Low memory footprint, garbage collected
  • Low disk footprint (< 1MB)

Open Source Smart Card

Martijn Oostdijk is researcher at Novay. He will tell us about open source for smart cards.


Open Computer

Can we build a totally open computer as a solder-at-home kit?

Eric Herman will talk about his experience building free systems on closed hardware, describe the problems he encountered: no docs, trial-and-error, end-of-life hardware.

Talk about the EEG hardware he has published (and show the boards) designing boards, getting them printed, surface mount soldering on the kitchen table.
