April meeting: Topic Web Frameworks

Date: 
Sun, 2010-04-25 18:00 - 22:00

Pradeep Bashyal (contact him through the mailing list) is organizing our next meeting, at Common Roots Cafe again.

This month's theme is web frameworks.  Two talks are already slated:

  • Patrick Stein on Weblocks
  • Robert Goldman on AllegroServe and Webactions

We would still love to have a last minute volunteer or two for some of the other frameworks.  It would be particularly valuable to have someone talk about Hunchentoot.  If you could help us out, sit down, install Hunchentoot, write a simple web site (see the tutorial pointer on the tc-lispers mailing list), and regale us with your experience.

For the first time this month we will also have lightning talks:

  • Paul Krueger on version 2.0 of his Cocoa contrib for Clozure Common Lisp and
  • Patrick Stein on his Growl client

It's not too late to sign up to give us a five-minute briefing on something you're working on.  Volunteer on the mailing list!

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Somehow, after I had

Somehow, after I had carefully crafted this posting, with all the lisp dialects as 2nd level headings and all the framework names as 3rd level headings, Drupal decided to take all that formatting and throw it on the floor.  :-(

No time or morale to fix it.

For a bonus Oh, yeah, and it

For a bonus

Oh, yeah, and it screwed up all the line breaks as an extra bonus.

What you see is a lot of trouble, but not like what you get.  :-(
