Workshop on Functional Programming in Technopark

Tutorial on Modern Application Development with PLT Scheme
and Functional Programming

Speaker: Guillaume Marceau, IIITM-K

Date: Wednesday July 2nd 2008, Time :
2pm - 3:30pm,

Location: IIITM-K, Park Centre


This introductory talk will give a bird's eye view of the
Scheme programming language. We will show examples that
illustrate the coding style in functional programming.

The program will present the object oriented
functionality, the GUI toolkit, as well as the threads and
resource management features of PLT Scheme . We will
describe an architecture for a debugger, and give one
example of syntactic hygienic macros -- a feature unique to
PLT Scheme.

studies under the supervision of Professor Shriram
Krishnamurthi. His research focuses on bringing well-founded
solutions to issues faced by the software industry, such as
refactoring prototypes into applications, detecting security
flaws by reusing existing static analyzes, and automating
debugging activities. Guillaume has presented his work at
numerous international conferences. He also taught lectures
based on the Professor Krishnamurthi's books, Programming
Languages and Interpretation, as well as How to Design
Programs, and he participated in the delivery of the
