SeaLang is a group in the same spirit as Lambda Lounge in St Louis: a gathering of programmers who want to explore different programming languages, regardless of platform, though we will deliberately look to explore more than "just" the functional and dynamic language spheres--the charter here is to explore any programming language, regardless of "-oriented"ness, that might hold interest to the membership. (How's that for a long opening sentence?)
On top of that, I would love to see members presenting on topics that relate to programming languages, such as type systems and type theory, parsers, code generators, and tools (ANTLR, for example) around any of the above.
I would also love to see the group take on a few "hackathons", where we try to implement a language in an evening or a weekend, particularly some of the smaller (and stranger) languages in the world, such as Ook, Zombie, Taxi, Shakespeare, or maybe even invent a few of our own, just to explore.
In short, I just want to create a group where a bunch of language geeks like me can get together, hang out, geek out, and maybe even produce a few interesting projects that people might actually find useful.
