+               <abstract>
+               Eric LaForest introduces modern Stack Computing, FORTH (a stack based language). Stack systems have faster procedure calls, reduce complexity (shorter pipeline, simpler compilation), and consistent performance (very important for realtime systems). Additionally, The price to  performance ratio is often much higher on stack based architectures. But enough rambling from me, watch the video and download the slides to learn more.

+               Note: the slides are hard to make out in the video, so make sure to download them as well.
