"Tao3D (http://tao3d.sourceforge.net) is an open-source programming language for real-time interactive 3D. It is based on a functional language called XL, and uses LLVM JIT for efficient code generation.

You can use it to create interactive presentations that do not just include images or movies, but also computations, simulations, web pages or external processes. This is definitely not boring old Powerpoint.

The session will be mostly live coding, starting with the construction of simple slides and animations, all the way up to complex examples of simulation, data visualization or real-time ray-tracing shaders.

After the session, you should be able to know how to create simple presentations, and know where to look for information to create arbitrarily complex ones."
