Hello Lady & Gentlemen Hackers!
I hope you all had a great end-of-2012!
The first round of lighting talks for 2013 will be this Saturday, Jan 19 at 2pm. They will be at the 500 Startups office on the 12th floor of 444 Castro Street in Mountain View. Sorry this is such short notice! (There were some logistical issues.)
The "suggested" topic for lighting talks this month is: "retrospection" (retrospection on a project, an idea, or some code, lessons learned, humorous anecdotes, personal retrospection, etc). As per usual, topic adherence is not enforced ;-)
There will be a long-form presentation on Preserving Historic Software (eg LISP) by Paul McJones.
After his talk, Paul will be giving away several books, manuals, tech reports, etc that are duplicates of his work in conjunction with the Computer History Museum to maintain an archive of historical Lisp materials. He is very graciously giving these materials away to attendees of this meetup with no strings attached. Here is a full list of the materials:
Additional lighting talks will include:
- starlisp: a Common LISP with support for *Lisp and other useful features. -- brian guarraci
- djula retrospective -- Nick Allen
Please email me or post a comment if you have a lighting talk I can put on the "schedule". Also: feel free to also bring questions for discussion the group & we will try to squeeze them in at the end.
Hope to see you there!
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.
