These are my links for September 3rd through September 4th:
- Retro Book Look: The SimCity Planning Commission Handbook (publ 1990) – The Archive –
- Beer: Yeast DNA study reveals the natural history of lager – LA Times –
- Compilers for Free – Programs that manipulate other programs are powerful, interesting and fun. I’ll use Ruby to take you on a tour of how interpreters and compilers work, introduce the ideas behind a technique called partial evaluation, and explain a surprising computer science result which allows compilers to be generated automatically.
