One of the least productive aspects of coding is the wait time from saving code changes until the code is running and in the right state for feature testing and verification. This talk discusses the concept of reloadable code, in which code changes are immediately propagated into a client upon save without also resetting the client state. The result is a dynamic and immediate feedback loop which allows for rapid prototyping and development. I will discuss techniques for implementing reloadable code and give live demonstrations of the concept.
