October: Strange Loop Redux

Posted: September 28, 2014 by marioeaquino in Uncategorized

This coming Thursday (October 2, 2014) is the night of the next Lambda Lounge and it is sure to be a special treat. It will be a bit of a recap of this year’s Strange Loop, with a talk by Jessica Kerr called Concurrency Options on the JVM. The second talk of the night will be on programming music with Sonic Pi by Mario Aquino. We don’t yet have a sponsor for the night. If your company would like to provide food for some of St. Louis’ brightest programming enthusiasts, please send me an email.

As usual, feel free to bring your favorite beverage. If you would like to make a non-perishable food donation to Circle of Concern, it will be delivered on the Saturday after the meeting.

Doors open at 6 at our usual location.


September: Shen + J

Posted: September 1, 2014 by marioeaquino in Uncategorized

The time is nearly here for the next Lambda Lounge and I hope that you will be able to attend. We have two talks that are not to be missed!  Deech Siram will be giving a talk called, “Shen: A Sufficiently Advanced Lisp” (practice run for delivery at Strange Loop).  Then, Kari Hoijarvi will give a talk on the J programming language.  Food is sponsored by Ansira.

As usual, feel free to bring a delicious beverage of your choice.  The meeting location will be at the usual spot.  We are collecting donations for Circle of Concern if you would like to bring a non-perishable food donation.  Also, please spread the word about Lambda Lounge by bringing a friend who has never been to the meetup. The strength of this group is in the diversity and growth of the audience.  If you can, please promote the group and reach out to any local language enthusiasts who are looking for a collection of language and programming paradigm nerds.
