|1 Jianshi Huang (黄 澗石) on Making CL more popular for startups — the lean approach|
Rapid prototyping becomes essential when choosing a tech stack in startups. Jianshi will share his experience of using Common Lisp in the 7 months of his startup projects and 4 years of work in MSI, and will discuss how to make Common Lisp more popular for startups. Jianshi will also share the feedbacks he gathered from the Chinese Lisp community and Lispers he met in the west coast.
Jianshi has been a Common Lisp programmer for 6 years, with a 4-year work experience at Mathematical Systems Inc. in Japan http://www.msi.co.jp with a team of excellent CL programmers. At MSI, we use CL almost for everything, from data mining to high-speed network monitoring, from graph visualization to programming language implementations. Jianshi joined a startup as a tech co-founder this April. The startup went through two incubators, Startup Chile and TechStars in Seattle.
|2 Lightning Talks|
At every meeting, before the main talk, there are two slots for strictly timed 5-minute "Lightning Talks" each followed by 2 minutes for questions and answers.
Marc Battyani and François-René Rideau will tell what they saw or failed to see at the International Lisp Conference 2012 last October in Kyoto.
There is still one slot open for the next meeting. Step up and come talk about your pet project! Contact me at email@example.com.
|3 Time and Location|
The Lisp Meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 20th 2012 at 1800 (6pm) at Chatham Café at Google, 3 Cambrige Center.
We are trying a new location this month, at the Google offices right outside Kendall Square Station. The downside is that Google requires attendees to register at least one day before. Please send an email with your name or usual pseudonym to firstname.lastname@example.org (we don't send acknowledgements unless requested). It is OK to register and not come, but not OK to come without being registered, so if you think you might come, please register.
Chatham Café is a Google conference room on the fourth floor of the 3 Cambridge Center, Cambridge MA 02139, right next to Kendall Square Station. http://wikimapia.org/3930737/3-Cambridge-Center
3 Cambridge Center (3CC) is the building on the North side of Main street, immediately West to the main T exit (Red Line outbound). The entrance to 3CC is on the side of the building opposite the T exit. A Googler will be waiting for you downstairs between 5:30pm and 6pm. If you arrive late, send me a text message at 617 575 9012 or email@example.com so someone can usher you in.
Many thanks to Google for welcoming us.
We unhappily couldn't secure a sponsor to offer us dinner, but we're big boys and can provide for ourselves. After the conference, we will head down to the Cambridge Brewing Company and will take it from there.
