I am happy to announce that this Thursday (the 20th of May), Alessio Stalla will hold a discussion about Lisp.
Also, remember that in December, we changed the link to join the Meetup!
This talk aims to give an overview of macro metaprogramming in Lisp. No prior Lisp experience is required, with the goal of looking at MPS under a different light.
Alessio Stalla is a Language Engineer who designs and builds languages and supporting tools. Most of the time, you can find him crafting textual or projectional editors/IDEs, static analysis tools or model-to-model transformations. Also, between projects, he writes articles on Strumenta’s blog about what he’s learned. He is also the lead developer of the open-source web application framework, Portofino. He contributed to ABCL, the Common Lisp implementation on the JVM, and marginally to the Groovy language. He knows the JVM ecosystem quite deeply and routinely and actively participates in the local Java User Group and follow several JVM development mailing lists. In the past, he has designed and implemented Java enterprise applications using a variety of technologies, including Spring and JEE applications, Alfresco customizations, Liferay portlets and extensions, Camel/ServiceMix, BPMN engines, and more.
And if you are thinking of proposing a talk, it is time to come forward. Just let me know by replying to this message.
To avoid other security issues is now necessary to register for the meeting. The registration should be necessary just once and be valid for all the next meetings you will participate in. I understand it is a little extra effort, but it would avoid problems like the ones we encountered:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. It will also permit you to add it to your calendar.
It is hosted on Zoom at 6 PM GMT+1/CEST (you can use this link to figure out which time is in your timezone: The Time Zone Converter).
P.S. We get a recurring question: “Are presentations recorded?”. The answer is not, and the reasons are explained here On recording Virtual Meetups - #7 by voelter
