About the Presentation
Leo is an outlining editor that creates and displays relationships
between code and data in a new way; you can't do what Leo does with
Emacs or any other tool. Leo shows these relationships in an outline
using noweb, a simple markup language. Clones are separate parts of an
outline that represent the same data. Clones allow you to create
multiple views of data within a single outline.
Edward's talk will briefly discuss outlines, noweb and clones, and then
show how these three powerful features can be combined to clarify and
simplify all aspects of programming: design, coding, testing and unit
test, maintenance, data management and project management.
Edward K. Ream received a masters degree in computer science from the
University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1974 and has been programming ever
since. He is the author of numerous public domain programs written in
C. He has been working on Leo for almost 10 years. For the last three
years he has been programming exclusively in Python using Leo.
There will also be time to chat, and many opportunities to ask
questions. We encourage people at all levels to attend.
