May Meeting – Language Shootout!

Posted: May 5, 2009 by Alex Miller in Uncategorized

This Thursday at 6 pm, we’ll be doing the very first Lambda Lounge Language Shootout! Everyone is working on a version of a Vending Machine problem in different languages and we’ll be looking through the code from everyone’s examples.

At this point it looks like there are people actively working on examples in the following languages at least:

  • Clojure
  • Ruby
  • Fan
  • Groovy
  • Haskell
  • Python
  • Perl 5

Should be a blast! Coming up in the next few months we already have a fantastic line-up of talks and speakers:

  • June – rich client development with JRuby (Mario Aquino) and a Haskell overview (Alex Stangl)
  • July – metaprogramming in Groovy (Jeff Brown) and a Fan overview (Scott Bale)
  • August – Perl: Not Dead Yet (Matt Follett) and Haskell’s STM (Aditya Siram)

Lots of tasty language goodness there. If you’re in St. Louis (or even if you’re not), feel free to stop by and get your lambda on.
