Subject Re: RFC ad possible presentation submission for ApacheCon EU
Date Wed, 18 Jun 2014 18:44:59 GMT
Very interesting talk, I remember a while ago a friend wanted to port
Groovy to UNO, since it runs on the JVM it was very possible to have
an engine.

Althought nowadays I think a more relevant feature for AOO is to have
its IDE speak other languages than Basic (think Python, Javascript).
And maybe improve it with instrospection, snippets, bookmarks, and
code folding features.
