AmbientTalk

Tom Van Cutsem
2011 Proceedings of the compilation of the co-located workshops on DSM'11, TMC'11, AGERE!'11, AOOPES'11, NEAT'11, & VMIL'11 - SPLASH '11 Workshops  
The purpose of this demo is to showcase the AmbientTalk programming language. AmbientTalk is intended to be a "scripting language for mobile phones". It's a dynamic, object-oriented, distributed programming language with a focus on deployment in so-called mobile ad hoc networks -networks composed of mobile devices that communicate peer-to-peer using wireless communication technology. We discuss AmbientTalk's roots and devote special attention to its concurrent and distributed language features, which are founded on the actor model.
