The Vancouver Lisp Aliens is a group is for current or future Lisp hackers. In this group we talk about Lisp in all its incarnations, but Common Lisp is elevated above others as the group's official language. Coders of all levels are welcome to join the group—in fact, even if you have only a passing interest in “programming with alien technology”, please don't be a stranger to the meets.

VLA exists so Lispers can code and learn in a social environment, bounce ideas off one another, and hopefully contribute together to the Common Lisp software ecosystem. If you are able to contribute to this group in any other ways, please let the organizer know! All members are strongly encouraged to boldly schedule meetups on their own.
