We're on the 5th floor. If the doors are locked look for the sign and call.



We'll have two talks this month.

Making Games in Clojure(script) with the DEVS Modeling Formalism

In this talk, Austin Haas will discuss why games are difficult to make and how DEVS, a popular simulation modeling formalism, can help. This talk may be relevant to anyone interested in game development, systems theory, actors, agents, or FRP.

Regex derivatives: the functional pearl inside core.spec

The new spec library in Clojure 1.9 uses an old but elegant method for recognizing sequences. We'll develop an implementation of this algorithm in Clojure.

Bio: Russell writes Clojure at Puppet. He's into guitars and separating his functions from his data.
