In our first Episode, we've assembled the entire Vaporware team (all four of us) to chat about our Chief Architect Jack Ek's talk "PLAN: Purely Functional Programming With Batteries Included" which he recently gave at ⁠Lambda Conference⁠, the site where Urbit founder Curtis Yarvin first presented the technical specifications for Urbit/Nock back in 2016.
