We videotaped the presentation and you can watch the video here:
After talking a lot about the Bespin and performance, and bragging about how well Bespin performes on a large code base, the familiar demo ghost showed up and teased Ben and Dion: Bespin was surprisingly slow on a larger code base and according to Ben and Dion it hadn’t been the day before. Fortunately Ben later found the reason and blogged about it. And the culprit was the tab character and how it is supported in Bespin. In his blog post Ben discusses the possible ways to support tabs in code and their effect on performance including the fix that he made after the failed Bespin demo at QCon.
