nescala 2014 - day 2

  • March 2, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • Meetup Headquarters, 10th Floor

The second day of nescala 2014 is a free-to-attend, hands-on unconference, self-organized on the spot by whoever shows up. (Trust us, this works.)

In past years we’ve had workshops, panels, talks that didn’t make it into day 1, debates, radio shows, and many unstructured conversations. The unconference is what you make of it. 

We're taking over all three floors of Meetup HQ (be gentle, please), so there will be plenty of room for everyone, even those who didn't get in for Day 1.

Unconference participants will collectively fill the schedule grid first thing Sunday morning. Bring your laptop, and your conversation ideas.

Rooms, projectors, whiteboards, and markers will be provided. But please bring your own video adapter, especially if it's not The One.

There will be coffee and other beverages, for a while at least. Food won't be provided, but there's a million places nearby to go get it.

code of conduct: Be kind

    I may be in the wrong matrix, but... a) is there a page with links to all slides? b) the Norwegian guys that gave this great talk about monadic http, I could not find any trace at all! Wanted to recommend it to my friends, and kaboom.

    At the end of Jon Pretty's talk "Batshit-crazy algebra with Types" a bunch of books were shouted out. Did anyone get a list of them?
    I believe one of them was "Analytic Combinatorics" by Flajolet & Sedgewick.

      a) also Stanley's Enumerative Combinatorics, however: b) In the same vein I can also highly recommend "Concrete Mathematics" by Graham, Knuth, Patashnik. It's a bit easier than the Stanley book to begin with. I'd recommend to start with the GKP and THEN read Stanley. c) Mike, you mean generatingfunctionology,­­ not generatingfucntionalogy (two mistakes). It's obviously an ... ology.

    People wanted to hear about Haskell and pure functional programming!

    I really enjoyed it. Self-organizing gives people a chance to speak who would otherwise not. Further, it allows for the creation of group discussions on common problems people are facing.

      On the cheap side, Priceline got Seth $114+taxes at Comfort Inn Ludlow.

      If you haven't booked for tonight yet, I got a nice hotel on Priceline next to Columbus Circle for $100.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
