Evolving from its sound concise array oriented base incorporating many new features it reflects current frontiers of programming language development. You may, for example, experiment with true parallel processing, use functional programming as well as current procedural programming or object oriented programming, and bridge to other programming language environments such as R. This talk will focus on the current APL language as provided by Dyalog APL. Dyalog surrounds the APL programming language with strong supporting facilities to make a complete package capable of running on a wide range of computers from the $35 RaspberryPi to a large range of servers under a variety of operating systems. This presentation will summarize the core principles of the language followed by illustrations of the language in action. About the Speaker: Dr. Ray Polivka has had a long association with APL reaching back to 1967 where he was developing APL material for Science Research Associates. He has spent over half of his 35 years with IBM in education where he taught many APL classes worldwide. He has co-authored three APL textbooks. Upon retiring from IBM he established himself as Polivka Associates to continue presenting APL classes and actively promoting APL. He holds a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Illinois.
