Ray Puzio will be presenting on Emacs Mutant Anime Turtles: Impersonating Logo with Emacs Lisp:

Ray will show us his implementation of turtle graphics in emacs and take us under the shell to see how it works. Turtle graphics are a way of drawing pictures in which one provides a series of directions such as “move forward” or “turn left” to steer the pen. (The name comes from the fact that the original implementation involved a robotic turtle as output device controlled by the computer.) In addition to providing a useful and entertaining program, this talk will also discuss techniques of pbm graphics and the use of a buffer for drawing which are of general use when doing graphics in emacs.
