+Hendrik Ebber Absolute cliffhanger last Saturday, Lions going down by a single point! Taking it to the wire, one hell of a match.
 
How about this mark from Elliot Yeo!

Could it be a chance to win Mark of the Year?

Our new programming language, Pyret, is getting some interesting discussion over at HackerNews.

Edit:  Note that the title is misleading.  +Daniel Patterson  and I did not create Racket, but we did create Pyret.
I took CS019 with Shriram a few years back and immediately guessed the authors based on paradigms like making testing a natural part of the language and the encouragement to use annotations. In the class, we were taught a design process for Racket that will work very well for Pyret: ...

Backbone.js reaches 1.0. Before I even heard of this, I wrote a similar 'framework' called 'Atlas', named after the first vertebrae at the top of the spine. Then I threw that away and wrote a second one, 'Axis'.

It's great.
