Hack! Any language, any framework.

  • April 4, 2013 · 7:30 PM

Just hack.

Any language, any framework. There are only two rules:

  • Introduce yourself and say what you want to hack on.
  • Hack. If you do not have a project of your own, join somebody else in building something awesome.

    @Martin: I attended because of the following prioritized reasons:

    1) Meet new people
    2) Hear about inspiring projects of others
    3) Get in touch with technologies I didn´t know before
    4) Hack a little bit
    5) Have a beer

    Hey people, it's three weeks since our last event now and one week until the next. As we are still figuring out how to run a (this) meetup and everything I have question I'd love to have your answers to:

    Why did you attend in the first place and what we're you looking foward to at the event? We would really like to have your input on that and anything else you want to share with us. Write as much/less as you can :-)
    Either here as comment or privately: [masked]

    BTW anyone who can read Python I encourage to read this article:

    http://norvig.com/lispy.html

    It will give you an insight about how Lisp can be implemented. But if really you want to know what Lisp is, read this:

    http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/paulgraham/jmc.ps

    My project - inventing and implementing a simple Lisp dialect usable instead of C - is both funny and challenging at the same time. Everybody who wants to join is welcome!

    Ok ,like I said before I feel like I am bringing a knife to a gun fight,you all know so much more then I do, but I bet you all had to learn also,,Right?

      You know sth? Sometimes not knowing can be better. Those who know too much are stuck with old ideas and do not easily embrace new ones, even if they see them, transition is not easy because they are used to do things the old way. So, it is not important what you know, but what you can discover of new, you can invent. Even if you rediscover sth made by others before you, chances are it won't be exactly the same thing and you had fun anyway. It's much more amusing to discover than to just study what others have already discovered. Good luck!

      Wise words, Antonio. :)
      @Stan, if you have something to build I am pretty sure that there will be someone who can help you getting started with whatever you want to build. Looking foward to meet you all!

    I have this project http://ninuzzo.github.com/hyde/ but I would like to do much more with Lisp than just a static website generator. I'd want to develop a GCC or LLVM frontend that enables one to use Lisp for Unix system programming. I want to invent a Lisp dialect compatible with C at the link level, which can exploit all existing C libraries and call Unix system calls directly.

    • David

      What are your plans for the frontend?

      No precise idea yet, opened to suggestions. What I want is full linker-level compatibility with C. That is I should be able to link together a Lisp and C module and call C functions (also system calls) from Lisp directly. It won't be a Common Lisp implementation and won't be pure functional. Any Lisp standard will get in the way because I want full compatibility with C and Unix and on top of that the other Lisp features supporting functional programming, macros, etc. So we have to develop a new, practical Lisp dialect! If C is compiled directly into assembly, we should do the same, I guess.

    Depending on the time and location, I’m definitely interested

    • Martin K.

      Cool man, any specific project you are looking foward to hack on? :-)

      March 19, 2013

    • Timwi

      Not really, I hack a lot on my own. But maybe someone has a cool idea for something to work on together, so I thought I’d just check this out :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
