Live coding environments run your program on-the-fly as you write it. This makes development easier, but it is a challenge for compiler writers - textbook compiler architecture does not work for live coding systems.
Tomas Petricek'll show interesting aspects of a live coding environment for The Gamma, its functional F# implementation and explain how the compiler differs from textbook examples. Along the way, you'll see practical code samples interesting for both web developers and programming language enthusiasts.
