The next Lambda Lounge is this Thursday and it includes two talks that might change your mind about everything. In the first talk, Steven Lembark will present Multiplying Ethiopians: Lambdas, Lazyness, & Perl6. Expect minds to be blown. For any left in tact, Mario Aquino will present a Frankenstein monster called (mashup Prisoners-Dilemma Game-of-Life) (hint: parentheses means Clojure), in which a beautiful mathematical model will be tinkered with for the purpose of confirming that evolution is a thing. There, I said it.
Delicious sushi will be sponsored by Climate Corp.
Please bring a delicious beverage of your choosing. If you would like to also bring a non-perishable food donation, it will be delivered to Circle of Concern after the meeting. Also, help grow the group by bringing a friend to the meeting. Doors open at 6.

This coming Thursday, please come to Lambda Lounge to hear Aditya Siram present “Haskell for Beginners” (a bridge that shows how to re-use the familiar imperative idioms in Haskell so people can write working and safe code without having to ditch all of their existing experience). Also that night, Chris Gore will give a talk called Macros in Common Lisp. Ain’t no macro like the Common Lisp macro ’cause the Common Lisp macro don’t stop….

We have two notable speakers presenting: Jim Duey travels in from Kansas City to give a talk called “Beyond Monads” and Jessica Kerr will deliver a presentation on ScalaCheck. Both talks will be focused on Functional Programming topics, so I have asked Square to provide us with the most appropriate FP food: kolaches from the Kolache Factory.
If you would like to attend the meetup, please RSVP. Also, you are welcome to bring a(n adult) beverage of your choice. As well, if you would like to bring a non-perishable food donation for Circle of Concern, I will deliver it on the weekend after the meeting. Or bring a friend who has never attended Lambda Lounge. We have two great talks schedule, help us grow the group!

I am very excited to announce the next meeting, with two talks that are not to be missed. The first is one that will be given by Fred George who is flying into town to speak to us about Implementing Microservice Architectures. Fred has delivered that talk internationally (I’ve seen it myself) and it has some big ideas. The second talk of the night will be on Datomic, given by Alex Miller. Fred’s startup (and my current employer), Outpace, will be sponsoring sushi from Oishi. There will be lots of it. Please come hungry.
As usual, everyone is welcome to bring their own refreshing (adult) beverage. As well, if you would like to bring a non-perishable food donation to the meeting, I will deliver it to the Circle of Concern food shelter in Valley Park the weekend after the meeting.
This meeting offers two fantastic talks. Please consider bringing a friend (or two) with you to the meeting. There will be plenty of food and bright developers for mingling, networking, and sharing insights that make this tech group stand out among all the other meetups in town. My hope is for a packed room. Doors open at 6.
Hope to see you Thursday!

It is (will be) a new year and the first Lambda Lounge of 2014 is nearly upon us. Thursday (1/2) is the next Lambda Lounge, featuring two talks: John Daily will present on Conflict-free Replicated Data Types and Jessica Kerr will give a talk called When Code Reacts to Data (Scalaz Streams). John is coming in all the way from Indianapolis to deliver his talk, and Jessica’s has only been heard once by a conference audience in London recently.
Also, I will be delivering any non-perishable food donations to Circle of Concern on the Saturday after the meeting. Thank you to everyone who has donated and I welcome anyone to consider bringing something for donation to the next meeting.
The food sponsor for the meeting is Basho.
