Hello Lady & Gentlemen Hackers!
The next round of educational lighting talks at 500 Startups will be Saturday July 28 at 2pm.
This time there will be a long-form presentation (20 minutes + 5 minute QA) on the Shen language project (http://www.shenlanguage.org/) by Kian Wilcox.
The educational lightning talks segment will be in the new format developed last week (background + 5 min + 5 min QA). The "suggested" topic is "small decisions with big consequences". As per usual, topic adherence is not enforced ;-)
Presentations will include:
- Viper.io: dynamic reasoning based on REST resources -- Brian Guarraci
- Skip lists data structure -- Ric Szopa
- Keyword args: everybody's doing them wrong -- Kartik Agaram
- BountyOSS: bounties for Open Source Software -- Scott L. Burson
- Andreas Fuchs -- TBD
Also, feel free to also bring questions for the group (like Annie did for the "meta talk" last meetup) & we will try to squeeze them in at the end.
See you there!
Like before, it would be helpful if a couple people can volunteer to help man the front door.
If you show up late and no one is manning the door, post a comment on the event page for someone to let you in.
