The first Thursday of the month approaches, and with it the next Lambda Lounge. This month, we will have two brain-expanding talks: Monads in Erlang by Rebecca Skinner, and the Pixie programming language by Chris Gore. Food this month is sponsored by Beacon Hill.  As usual, you are welcome to bring a refreshing beverage of your choice.  Any non-perishable food donation brought to the meeting will be delivered to Circle of Concern on the weekend after the meeting.

November: Future of the Front End + Elm Mob Programming

Posted: November 1, 2015 by marioeaquino in Uncategorized

The next Lambda Lounge is just around the corner and this meeting is going to teach you Elm! Thursday at 6, we have something very special in the works: the first session will be a talk called The Future of the Front End given by the one and only Jessica Kerr, in which she will deliver a talk she keynoted earlier this year at the React Rally conference in Salt Lake City. The talk will be a gentle introduction to the Elm programming language.  The second session of the night will follow with the Elm theme: Elm Mob Programming! In the second session, all Lambda Loungers in attendance will work as a group to implement a code kata in Elm. This session will give you a taste for a language that will no doubt lure you away from whatever you do in your day job (unless you are already doing Elm for fun and profit).

The food sponsor for the meeting will be Object Computing, Inc.

As usual, you are welcome to bring a tasty beverage of your choice.  Also, if you bring in non-perishable food donations, they will be delivered to Circle of Concern the weekend after the meeting.

Doors open at 6. This will be a great meeting.  Please mention it to coworkers or other friends who haven’t been to a meeting in a while (or ever).
