[New!] Information about necessary software and tutorial material is available. Please check the page !
This tutorial aims to give a gentle introduction to continuations and a taste of programming with first-class delimited continuations using the control operators shift and reset. Assuming no prior knowledge on continuations, the tutorial helps participants write simple co-routines and non-deterministic searches. The tutorial should make it easier to understand and appreciate the talks at CW 2011.
We assume basic familiarity with functional programming languages, such as OCaml, Standard ML, and Scheme. No prior knowledge of continuations is needed. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops and program along.
The software to be used in the tutorial will be announced from this page. Participants are encouraged to install it to their laptops beforehand.
