Dynamic Language User Group Is Back!

The holidays are over and it's time to get back to programming in the languages we love. I'm happy to announce we have a new location this month courtesy of Matt Payne. It's located at UNO's Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI) building! So, why the change you dare ask? Here's the blurb:
Room PKI 269 is nice because it has about 25 machines, each connected to the Internet, and a large screen projector at the front of the room. A laptop may be connected to the projector or you can just use the PC at the front of the room. Almost every room in PKI has a large screen projector at the front of the room with a PC and a laptop connection. All of the rooms have white boards.

WOW! I would like to give extra special thanks to Heather Blockovich of Tek Systems for all of her help. So, when are we meeting at our bright new shiny place? February 6 is the date usual time of 7-9pm. Of course, I'm always up for a little chit chat before.

Now, for the most important announcement (drum roll please): the speaker! Ben Heath will be providing a special evening of discussion on Common Lisp and his Netflix project. Ben is a passionate programmer with years of experience and is a Lisp and dynamic language lover. It's going to be an exciting talk for sure! I can't wait.

And if that wasn't all, Tek Systems will be joining us with food, refreshments, and maybe a few suprises! Yes, we have sponsorship for this meeting. Now, I have to ask what better way to spend an evening with free food, great place, great people, and awesome Lisp coding?! It's just too good! I look forward to seeing everyone.
