subject APL BUG 11 May 2009: Catherine Lathwell Rediscovers the history of APL
The APL Bay Area Users’ Group (The Northern California SIGAPL of the ACM) will meet at 7 p.m. on Monday the 11th of May at the Computer History Museum.
Catherine Lathwell will speak on her rediscovery of the history of APL.
She witnessed the wild growth of APL in the 1970s as the daughter of Dick Lathwell who worked with Larry Breed and Roger Moore to turn Iverson notation into APL\360. Now she wonders “What is APL’s contribution to science?” and has begun producing a history of APL documentary film as an independent producer with CineFocus Canada.
