Apparently last year's 8th grade graduating class of maybe 30-40 kids had seven Taylors, four girls and three boys.
Here are a few Lisp-related links I liked in April:
- A cute read-macro dispatch scheme. Worried about running out of characters for read macros? #/foo/ to the rescue!
- Daniel Weinreb's ECLM 2008 recap (Dave Moon has a cool comment)
- Edi Weitz's ECLM 2008 recap (including MP3s of several talks)
- Limp: Lisp in Vim
- Lisp for the Web. A nice baby-steps guide.
- Getting CLOS by Joe Marshall. A teaser.
- Lisp-centric "Good Easy" by Bill Clementson.
And here are the coming Lisp-related meetings in May I know about:
- May 4: CRACL (Los Angeles)
- May 8: Lisp Stammtisch (c-base, Berlin)
- May 13: lispnyc (New York City)
- May 16: Chicago Lisp meeting
- May 18: ABQ Lisp/Scheme meeting (Albuquerque)
- May 22: ELS 2008 (Bordeaux)
- May 22: lispvan (Vancouver) featuring Drew Crampsie and Lisp on Lines
- May 27: Boston Lisp meeting
- May 28: Hamburg Lispers
- May 31: Intro to Lisp Workshop in Chicago. Three hours of practical advice on getting started with Common Lisp! Awesome! Volunteers are needed, so if you're in Chicago, go help them out.
If you're having a meeting in May and I didn't list it, let me know.
