...alright, if you insist on a description with words:
NFC is for programmers that program for fun, but also care about serious computer science. Our presentations will focus on introducing hot new topics in algorithmics and programming language design. Expect talks on Logic Programming, Lisp, Erlang, Neural Networks, that sort of stuff. Our presenters are asked to keep their talks intellectually challenging but to not take themselves too seriously.
Formal meetings (with presenters) will be held at coLab Evanston on the second Monday of odd months. These are followed by beer at the Lucky Platter. Informal meetings will be held at a TBD bar in Uptown on the second Monday of even months.
