We also hope to cover a variety of topics about Modula-3 such as: ports to PC OSs (Win, OS/2, Mac), evangelizing, commercial use, academic and research use, commercialization, and using Modula-3 to build distributed applications.Modula-3 is a simple and modular programming language, providing facilities for exception handling, concurrency, object-oriented programming, automatic garbage collection, and systems programming, making it both a practical implementation language for large software projects and an excellent teaching language. An implementation of Modula-3 is available free of chargefrom Digital SystemsResearchCenter.Please join us! Organizers: Farshad Nayeri & Geoff Wyant
