Dayton Dynamic Languages SIG - special topic: Jargon

Parlez-vous programmese? Like those in every field, programmers use a lot of jargon. It can be pretty intimidating when you don’t know it. Even when you do know the terms, unpacking them to look at exactly what they mean and how you’d explain them can be revelatory.

We’re going to discuss and preview the jargon portion of a PyOhio Tutorial. We’ll also look at the webscraping and word-counting scripts used to suggest terms for the tutorial - it’s (data) science!

Every month, DDL hosts 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!

The Dayton Dynamic Languages User Group meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month on the second floor of Brixx Ice Co. from 7 to 9 PM. We are a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Dayton Microcomputer Association. http://d8ndl.org
