    Some great-looking stuff in here that I’d like to devote some time to. For those not familiar, the HOPL conference happens every 10-15 years (1978, 1993, 2007, 2020), and publishes papers that give in-depth language histories written by people with long involvement in the respective language.

    HOPL IV covers: APL since 1978, C++ 2006–2020, Clojure, SPMD in Fortran, D, Emacs Lisp, F#, Groovy, JavaScript, LabVIEW, Logo, Hygienic Lisp macros, MATLAB, Objective-C, Oz, S & R, Smalltalk, Standard ML, and Verilog HDL.

    (Also a note for those who might be scared off by the dl.acm.org domain: this conference’s proceedings are all open access.)

      In addition, the ACM made their entire digital library open access at the start of the lockdowns.
