April is almost here and the next Lambda Lounge is sneaking up on us. This Thursday, April 2, we have two great talks for the evening that I hope you will not miss.  First, Naeem Bari will present a talk called: Startups and the Techie, in which we will learn how to create a fantastically successful and profitable startup venture.  The second talk of the evening will be titled: Contracts and Clojure: The Best-Yet Compromise Between Types and Tests by Jessica Kerr, and will feature insights on how the Prismatic Schema library brings contracts to Clojure.

Food sponsor for this meeting will be Beacon Hill Technologies.  As usual, attendees are welcome to bring a delicious beverage of their choice.  Also, any non-perishable food donations brought to the meeting are greatly appreciated and will be delivered to Circle of Concern. A great thanks to all of you who have thought to contribute to our monthly donation to that organization.  It makes a difference!

Doors open at 6. See you Thursday!


The March Lambda Lounge will feature a series of lightning-talk style overviews of 11 different influential computer science papers. Originally listed on Michael Fogus’ blog, these papers cover some important thinking on the topics functional programming and distributed computing. Catered Mexican food for this meeting is sponsored by Asynchrony. As usual, attendees are welcome to bring a refreshing beverage of their choice (some soda will be provided). Also, if anyone would like to bring non-perishable food or other in-kind items for donation to Circle of Concern, those donations will be delivered on the Saturday after the meeting. This meeting will cover some great ideas in the field of programming. I hope you can join us and participate in the discussion.

The meeting will be held in room 225 of the Climate Corp offices. Doors open at 6. A map to the building of the meeting place can be found here.
