Fun languages for April Fools

Posted: March 30, 2010 by Alex Miller in Uncategorized

I can’t believe it but the April meeting is this Thursday, April 1st already! We’ll have a trio of fun languages this month:

  • PietBenjamin Lee will be showing us Piet, a crazy language embedded in Mondrian-style pictures.
  • Ook – Bryan Venable will be showing us a bit of Ook, a language designed for orangutans.
  • LOLCODEMario Aquino will be showing us the LOLCATS-inspired language. kthxbye.

The meeting is Thursday, April 1st 6pm at Appistry, as usual. I do NOT have a pizza sponsor yet for this month. If you know someone willing to sponsor, drop me a line.


March meeting!

Somehow it’s March and time for the next great Lambda Lounge meeting!

First up we’ll have James Carr (@jamescarr) talking about Behavior Driven Development with jspec:

Behavior Driven Development is a technique for improving collaboration and development by using examples of how a system or API works from the outside-in to drive it’s development. To illustrate, I’ll use the javascript based spec framework jspec to demonstrate how to build a javascript library one example at a time.

Following that, Ryan Senior will give us a run-down of emacs and when it will finally achieve sufficient intelligence to become SkyNet.

This meeting is sponsored by Object Computing (OCI). Thanks OCI!
