• Scheme/Racket with Brian Mirambeau
    One of our newest members will be giving a presentation on Scheme and/or Racket. I don’t think we’ve ever looked at either of those languages as a group, so come learn something new with us! Here’s the outline from Brian: I. History/development II. Environment/IDE (Dr. Racket) III. Basic syntax and semantics IV. Data structure(s) V. Features VI. Sample programs/functions VII. Application (socket programming) We are an open and welcoming group. We’re all learning together! All skill-levels, platforms, and backgrounds are welcome. Improving provides the pizza and sodas.

  • Elm Hack Night
    We’ve spent the last 3.5 years talking about various functional programming languages, but it’s time to build something beyond simple games or coding problems. So we’re working on a series of Elm hack nights. The plan is to pick a project and start building something together in Elm (http://elm-lang.org) and continue working on it for a couple of months or as long as it stays interesting. We'll typically work together mob programming style, but bring your laptop in case we break into smaller groups or you want to explore on your own. If you have an idea of something we could work on, please come share it. Ideal project ideas for implementation in Elm would include an existing public API with interesting rich data that could be visualized in a web browser. If there is something that doesn't have a backend API, we could also decide to build out an API in a language like F#, Haskell, or Elixir. This description will be updated when we decide on a specific project to start working on. No prior knowledge or experience with Elm is required. We will continue to be an open and welcoming group. We’re all learning together! All skill-levels, platforms, and backgrounds are welcome. Improving provides the pizza and sodas.

    This event was canceled.
  • Generative Art with Elm
    After listening to the recent Elm Town podcast discussing generative art in Elm, Dennis started playing around with the concept. This will be a short presentation of what he's come up with and then time to explore as a group and see what cool art we can create. Listen to https://elmtown.audio/generative-art-xavier-ho and see the show notes for interesting links. Dennis' repo is on GitHub at https://github.com/CoderDennis/elm-generative-art No prior knowledge or experience with Elm is required. We will continue to be an open and welcoming group.

So we’re going to start a series of Elm hack nights. The plan is to pick a project and start building something together in Elm and continue working on it beyond just one evening. We’ll have a few ideas ready to pick from, but if you have an idea of something we could work on, please come share it. No prior knowledge or experience with Elm is required. We will continue to be an open and welcoming group. We’re all learning together.

  • Functional Dojo
    We'll start by agreeing on a language and a programming problem (something from exercism.io (http://exercism.io/) or projecteuler.net (https://projecteuler.net/) or your suggestions) and work through it as a group. We'll follow the model of a coding dojo made popular recently by the folks at mobprogramming.org (http://mobprogramming.org/) where the person at the keyboard rotates every 5 minutes. Everyone should take a turn at the keyboard -- especially if you are not experienced in the language we're using. The group can help figure out what to type. We'll work through as many exercises as time allows and may switch between languages. Come help us learn and explore together. We are a curious and welcoming group. All skill-levels, platforms, backgrounds & languages welcome. Show off your favorite functional language and pose questions to the group.
