How do you keep designing your language when your BDFL decides leaves for a pasture full of colourful butterflies? In this presentation I look back on the past more than a decade to analyse our successes and our failures, compare with other languages, and come up with some ideas on how we can improve our designing process.

This is more likely to end in a discussion than in question round.
