On the 25th of June Patrick Viry will give us a presentation.
Patrick Viry has significant experience with code rewriting and transformations. He authored several scientific papers on this subject and he is now working as a consultant, providing services to companies for the automated migration of code, for example, from RPG to Java.
This time he will present Ateji PX, an extension of the Java language with parallel programming extensions inspired by pi-calculus. Ateji was a software startup aiming at designing DSLs as extensions of general purpose languages, and produced several such extensions.

I found interesting the reflections on building GPL extensions. The problem with having to re-build a huge portion of the tool support which typically is expected is a real blocker for these attempts. Things like editors and debuggers are not trivial at all to rebuild.
I was also impressed by the simplicity of usage of the extensions he and his team developed. Even I would be able to write parallel code using that
Hi @ikrima we have discussed this many times and we decided not to record events because we concluded that in this way the participants feel more open to discuss things which cannot be completely public. Also, presenters feel more relaxed. We can always use the forum for asynchronous discussion
