This Thursday Dec. 1st is the next edition of the Lambda Lounge! This month we have lightning talks and we’ve got a great set planned:
- Simple Made Easy: The Ramones – Jeff Sigmon
- Pattern Matching in F# – Jessica Kerr
- Galileo Was Wrong – Deech
- xmonad – Scott Bale
- Computational Geometry: Convex Hulls, Intersections, and Triangulations! Oh My! – Michael Schade
- Introduction to Cryptography – Tom Wheeler
Pizza will be provided by Technology Partners.
That first meeting was awesome for me because I mashed together a bunch of groups of people I knew (plus a bunch of people I didn’t!) and find a common thread. It was great to see all those smart people in one room. Ryan Senior did a talk on OCaml and that was the first time that I met him – now he sits next to me at Revelytix and is an integral part of the Strange Loop team. Matt Taylor also did a talk on Groovy – little did we know he would be on to bigger things in California before we knew it.
For me personally Lambda Lounge was a place to explore new (to me) ideas of functional and dynamic programming languages. Now I use a functional and dynamic language every day!
Many thanks to all for continuing to share at Lambda Lounge – I still love seeing everyone every month and miss it badly when I can’t make it.
