We meet occasionally to share lessons learned on various topics including computer science, design, HCI, complex systems development, programming languages, compiler optimization, cryptography, computer music, AI... and whatever else the group finds interesting.

The common thread is that most of the presenters & audience know at least one dialect of Lisp (e.g. Common Lisp, Scheme, Clojure, Emacs Lisp, etc).  But it is definitely a polyglot (not just Lisp-related) group, and presentations on non Lisp-related subjects are encouraged.

The format is usually "educational lightning talks" (background + five-minute presentation + five minutes for Q&A), with all attendees invited to present if they feel like it.  Followed by snacks.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
