 Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, June 12th from 7:00

 "Anton Unplugged: Pontifications of the R6RS Process"  :-)

 Anton van Straaten, a member of the Scheme Editors Committee,
 will host an unscripted free-form presentation/discussion on this
 groundbreaking work.

 Here is Anton's Letter of Appointment:

 Here is the most recent R6RS proposed standard:

 Anton van Straaten is a consultant and software developer with a
 strong interest in the design and development of programming
 languages. He developed the award-winning software product
 Class(y), an object-oriented language extension to the Clipper
 database language.  Class(y) extended the Clipper language by
 adding the ability to create user-defined classes, creating a
 true object-oriented language, with features such as multiple
 inheritance and a Smalltalk-style meta-object protocol, based on
 metaclasses.  He also co-developed ExoSpace, a protected-mode
 linker for Clipper which eliminated memory limitations.  ExoSpace
 was subsequently acquired by Computer Associates, a major
 software vendor, and bundled with CA-Clipper.

 Anton developed SchemeDS, an executable version of the formal
 denotational semantics for the Scheme language, the only such
 implementation publicly available and currently serves on the
 Scheme Editors Committee, which is developing the Revised6 Report
 on the Algorithmic Language Scheme (R6RS), a standard for the
 Scheme programming language.

 Anton hosts the programming languages community weblog Lambda the
 Ultimate, founded by Ehud Lamm. He also hosts the Schematics
 Scheme Cookbook, and the Community Scheme Wiki.
