Emacs Mutant Anime Turtles: Impersonating Logo with Emacs Lisp

As usual, we’ll be starting at 6:30 with pizza and beer!

Ray Puzio will be presenting on Emacs Mutant Anime Turtles: Impersonating Logo with Emacs Lisp:

"Ray will show us his implementation of turtle graphics in emacs and take us under the shell to see how it works. Turtle graphics are a way of drawing pictures in which one provides a series of directions such as “move forward” or “turn left” to steer the pen. (The name comes from the fact that the original implementation involved a robotic turtle as output device controlled by the computer.) In addition to providing a useful and entertaining program, this talk will also discuss techniques of pbm graphics and the use of a buffer for drawing which are of general use when doing graphics in emacs."

    Hey guys-

    The rooftop party and "Papers We Love" were added to the open source events calendar that was shown.

    And the lack of scrolling for lengthy descriptions WAS Safari specific (it does not honor a W3C CSS attribute, "overfow-y"; I found a lot of grousing online from developers about that...) A test solution was implemented; send feedback to the site's contact link if it still doesn't cover it.

    As for adding "learn to code" events, it will be dealt with at a later date due to a few more time sensitive matters that are presently being dealt with.

    See you all next month; love the Bleecker Street pizza (<joke>though be assured: that's not the reason I come...</joke>)
