Video: My VM and its time-travelling debugger

My work at Zoo has recently focused on KCL, our CAD programming language. Currently our modeling app uses a tree-walk interpreter, but for various reasons we've been exploring a proper compiler instead. I've been developing the compiler, called Grackle. It compiles to a bytecode VM (i.e. an abstract machine), called the KCVM. I gave a 10-minute presentation about KCVM and its time-travelling debugger at a tech talk in Austin recently. Here's the recording!

Thanks very much to for hosting the event!
