Reading Club Meetup 1: Deprecating the Observer Pattern

Saem had the idea of starting a 'book club' type of meetup series and I think it's a great idea. 

Before each meetup, we'll assign a paper (or two) to read beforehand and discuss. 

First one "Deprecating the Observer Pattern": http://infoscience.epfl.ch/record/148043/fi...

Associated HN discussion: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2972581

Here's how we'll format the meetup:

1) Intro (Name and whether they read the paper) - 10 min

2) Paper review (Just run down the paper and make sure people understood it, only those that read it should participate) - 90 min

3) Plan next meeting (choose a paper or PoC work based on the paper) - 20 min

The review can go for longer, I just want to make sure that the two bookkeeping items are accommodated. For the first meetup, we might want to revise point 3, make it a retrospective, just see where the group might wish to go with it.

Going forward, most of the papers will be taken from here: http://www.scala-lang.org/node/143#papers

Change: We're meeting at GrowLab, because we've had more people RSVP than the alibi room can handle. 

We can go to the Alibi room after for drinks/food

    Sorry, my memory is absolutely terrible and I can't for the life of me remember which paper we chose to read next at this meetup. Help?
