Real Life Projects, Real Life Problems

Why scripting matters, and why&when REBOL is a better choice.

Based on his experience as project leader for the SURFnet Network Detective toolkit, Maarten Koopmans will present the strengths and weaknesses of REBOL when doing a real-life large REBOL-based project. What problems do you run into, how is the community, how are things fixed, why REBOL, when not to use REBOL. And of course… what is the REBOL Powerpack.
