YAPC 05 Hackathon Day 1: PDDs, PGE, and Testing

[ #30096 ]
Writing from beautiful(?!) Chicago where the incredible Josh McAdams and Pete Krawczyk have herded all us cool cats through YAPC::NA '06. Not enough can be said about their yeoman service, so I won't try. Suffice to say: "Great job, and thank you."

Links to many YAPC speaker slides are on the YAPC wiki.

And the hackathon begins...

I'm about to document the new dynamic_scope mechanism in a PDD. Meanwhile, Patrick Michaud, Will Coleda (coke) and Jerry Gay (particle) are here hacking on PGE, testing, and stuff.

In order to understand Parrot dynamic_scope, you should understand continuations. If you don't know about continuations, start by checking out the Wikipedia article on continuations and this introduction to continuations in Scheme. Extra credit for reading about Scheme's dymamic-wind.
