This is a group for experienced programmers looking to get their feet wet with a new language. Each meetup consists of two parts: First a ~60 minute talk about features and basic idioms of a different language and then ~60 minutes of social time or collaborative coding on a simple first project in that language. The scope of the project will be beyond a basic intro "Hello, World!" app - think 3-8 hour range. Since this takes us outside the timeframe of the meetup we'll also have collaborative discussion space where people can talk offline afterwards - think something like Piazza.
