June Meeting – Haskell and MacRuby

Posted: June 1, 2009 by marioeaquino in Uncategorized

Thursday evening (6/4/09) is the next gathering of the St. Louis Lambda Lounge and it promises to be an evening of geektacity the likes of which has not been seen for roughly 30 days.  Local functional-programming guru and all-around tall guy Alex Stangl will be holding court on a Haskell implementation of the Vending Machine spec written for the May Shootout.  Mortals, prepare to have your puny brains expanded!

Whatever remains of the audiences’ capacity for rational thought after Alex has delivered his concession-stand automata master work will be thoroughly obliterated by the awesome and terrifying MacRuby –prettiest and most blood-thirsty of all current Ruby-language implementations.  Mario Aquino will introduce MacRuby, using several code examples to highlight rich user interface features made available to Ruby programs on that platform.
