Delicious Bookmarks for April 21st through April 29th

These are my links for April 21st through April 29th:

  • Research papers overview | Mendeley – Mendeley attempting to compete with Google Scholar? The cool thing about Mendeleys catalogue search is that they have people who use their software rating and organising papers. Ratings based on the popularity of the people reading the papers seems like an extremely effective way to recommend papers to people searching for them.
    I’ll definitely be using this service to search for papers!
  • The Scheme Programming Language, 4th Edition – Well regarded Scheme text by CS professor, and author of Chez Scheme, R. Kent Dybvig. The reviews tell me that this book is very concise and exercise driven, seems like a reasonable way to learn a programming language.
  • "VMKit" JVM and .Net runtimes for LLVM – "an implementation of a JVM and CLI virtual machine (.Net is an implementation of the CLI). It translates Java bytecode and MSIL in the LLVM IR and uses the LLVM framework for optimizations and compilation. For garbage collection, it uses MMTk.
    Another leg-up for VM researchers. VMKit uses the GC from Jikes, so building on solid foundations!"
  • Akihabara – "is a set of libraries, tools and presets to create pixelated indie-style 8/16-bit era games in Javascript that runs in your browser without any Flash plugin, making use of a small small small subset of the HTML5 features, that are actually available on many modern browsers."
