This is a group for Honolulu-based dynamic programming language enthusiasts.

OUDL's main focus is on cooperative learning in tackling interesting programming language topics.  As such, our membership is a mix of both beginner and experienced programmers.  We have also started hosting talks and workshops aimed at helping beginners with specific skills and tools. Please let us know which topics you're interested in.

All participants are gently encouraged to present some material at some point... perhaps agreeing to do so after a few drinks. The groups goals are to help programmers hone their craft, and make Honolulu a better place for programmers. Simply stated:

Coding for fun. Coding as art. Serious coding. Be inspiring. Don’t pander to beginners, rather foster a welcoming culture.

We're building something that we all want, and don't want to have to move in order to get.

"The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet."

- James Oppenheim

This group is participatory and run from the ground up.  We *require* your suggestions.

Some of the talks have been video recorded and are available on our YouTube Channel.  Big thanks to Malcolm Mekaru for providing high-quality recording and editing of the talks!

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.
