One of the guys at the Genome Center mentioned he wanted to get a 7 Languages in 7 Weeks group started in St. Louis to go through the languages. I thought that was a neat idea, but I also realized it was very simple and may not require a group.
If you look at the list that Tate provides for Tate’s book, he lists these languages:
If you look at SLUUG’s St. Louis Event Calendar you find that:
- Ruby - Meets 2nd Monday of the Month
- Erlang - Is now dead due to lack if interest, but could be resurected (I know since I ran it :) )
- Clojure - Meets 4th Thursday of the month
- Haskell - Had its first social, maybe it can take off with meetings soon
Sadly, we don’t have a Scala, Io, or Prolog group that I know. However, I bet that we could get people to volunteer for such talks in Lambda Lounge.
As an addendum, if STLRUBY didn’t want to do a session I’m sure St. Louis Perl Mongers would be willing to shift around their schedule to do a talk on dynamic typing and meta programming.
