Discussion of technology and techniques related to dynamic programming languages: Python, Perl, Ruby, PHP, JavaScript, and sometimes something more exotic! These languages are fun and easy to get started with, yet powerful enough for all manner of professional use, and our members span the full range of experience with them. We always leave time for general conversation and questions. Come try one of the most interactive groups around!
