Lambda Rochester is for anyone interested in the art, science, and fashion of programming and languages. We want to encourage the computer scientist in you. Maybe you are new to programming or want to learn more about some paradigms that are unfamiliar to you? The good news is you do not need prior programming experience to take part discovering new ways to manipulate the world of information around you. Intellectual curiosity can be its own reward, but being motivated by other people around you who are passionate ( and opinionated... ) can make it fun.
