C3 is a programming language based on the C programming language. Its most important enhancements are object oriented, generic and concurrent programming support.

C3 is what C++ should have been if a series of unfortunate mistakes had not been made in the design of C++. C3 is much closer to C and much simpler than C++. C3 feels like C. The C3 compiler produces high level C code, as close as possible to the original C3 code. The C3 compiler, written in C3, will be open sourced when the compiler reaches its 1.0 level.

A presentation of the language will be given and draft copies of the upcoming book (which will be open sourced along with the C3 compiler) will be distributed to those interested in reviewing it.

Ramon Pantin has spent the last 20+ years doing operating system kernel development and file system kernel development (AIX at IBM; NonStopUX at Tandem; IBM MicroKernel at IBM; Windows 2000 at Microsoft; ICCOS at ICC; CDNA at Data Direct Networks.) His most recent work at Symantec has been as a member of the VxFS development team, and as the architect and lead developer of the NGFS research distributed file system.)

Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
