These are the slides for an arc presentation I gave today at xpday france -

I hope they represent arc reasonably well. There's a slight rainbow bias, and a lot of blub-bashing.

enjoy, and feel free to re-use parts you like.

[edit: the slides are in english]

How was it perceived at xpday ? Did people seem to like Arc's ideas ?

Various languages were represented in the audience. Generally, python and erlang users were less impressed; but users of java and other blubs found a new way in which their language was inadequate :)

Some were concerned about unreadability, and others dismissed arc as impractical, but overall I think people seemed to appreciate the power macros can bring to a language, and how hopeless the situation is for java et al, given their heteroiconicity.
