We are back with the Virtual Meetup and I am happy to announce that this Thursday (the 7th of January) Leif Andersen will give us a presentation related to DrRacket.
Also, remember that in December we changed the link to join the Meetup!
Leif Andersen (https://leifandersen.net/) is a PhD student at the Programming Research Laboratory, part of the Northeastern University in Boston. She focuses her research on compilers, domain specific languages for writing compilers, and performance tools.
Leif will give a presentation about adding an interactive visual syntax to textual code in DrRacket, and comparing her approach to JetBrains MPS. In the community, we have noticed some interest in DrRacket and many are familiar with MPS, so I think this presentation can be particularly interesting.
How to connect
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 6PM GMT+1/CET (you can use this link to figure out which time is in your timezone: The Time Zone Converter).
