October Meeting

Date: 
Thu, 2009-10-22 18:00 - 22:00

Our next meeting will be October 22nd at 6:00 PM at Common Roots Cafe, in the community room.

Presentations:

  • Josh Marchan -- "Sheeple: Dynamic object-orientation with prototype objects." Sheeple is an object system extension to Common Lisp that offers:
    • More dynamic development style;
    • Multiple inheritance and multiple dispatch;
    • An interface reminiscent of CLOS; and
    • A design that is intended to support a meta-object protocol (currently under development).

    The code is hosted on github.  There are tarballs in the downloads page there, along with some documentation on how to try it out.

  • Open for volunteers!  See the discussion on the mailing list.

Mike Kohout will talk on Foreign Function Interfaces for Common Lisp.

Still have room for at least one more speaker roster for this meeting.  Please volunteer on the mailing list!

 

Mysteries of EVAL-WHEN clarified

Faré (François-René Rideau) has posted to his blog an explanation of the behavior of EVAL-WHEN.  This is probably something every practicing Common Lisper should read carefully, like Ron Garret's discussion of packages.

Anyone have any other invaluable short references?

August Meeting: Common Roots Cafe

Date: 
Tue, 2009-08-18 18:00 - 22:00

Details still firming up, but it looks like we'll have:

  • A Factor talk and
  • An ASDF talk

The latter is mine (rpg), and could easily be postoponed if anyone else would like to step in.

We could also have some lightening talks (5 minutes).

More details as we have them.  Jump into the discussion on the mailing list!
