Omaha Dynamic Language Meeting

It just keeps getting better and I'm not saying that because I'm the organizer. Last week, we had representives from several dynamic language camps (PHP, Ruby, Smalltalk, Groovy, Lisp/Scheme, and Javascript), plus a lot of curious folks. The attendance was diverse and it was fun to give a previous of my STS talk. It was a practice run and I have several things to improve on. I appreciated everyone's patience and we had a fun discussion afterwards regarding "eliminating pain" via unit testing. It was great showing off Smalltalk. I can't wait to give my "Introduction To Seaside" talk which I hope to include some of the new libraries like Seashore and the new AJAX stuff.

Next month, we have a talk on advanced Javascript by Brent Adkisson. Trust me, it's not to be missed. Brent gave a great talk last time on DynAPI and this one promises to be even better! After that, we have several great talks coming on the following topics: Lisp, Ruby On Rails, Groovy, and Seaside! Everyone is invited, let's keep the momentum going!
