The meetings are very informal. We usually don’t have any formal presentations, but people frequently show code that they’re working on. The flow of the meeting tends to meander, so if you’re interested in something specific, you should speak up! ).
We are a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Dayton Microcomputer Association. See other DMA SIG meetings at [Meetup](http://www.meetup.com/Dayton-Microcomputer-Association-Meetup/
Rust is a new programming langugage rapidly gaining popularity. It’s a multi-paradigm systems programming language focused on safety, especially safe concurrency. Rust is syntactically similar to C++, but is designed to provide better memory safety while maintaining high performance.
So… let’s get a peek and see what we think! Whether or not you ever program in Rust, getting a look into it will widen your horizons and help you think about programming more creatively.
Rust is not actually a dynamic language, but obeying Grace Hopper’s principle of EAFP (Easier to Ask Forgiveness than Permission), we’re going to get introduced to it anyway!
Together with Tec^Edge, we’re having an informal weekly lunchtime meeting for folks learning Python. No program, just come to share questions with each other, show off what you’ve been working on, and discuss. We’ll meet most Fridays at noon at the Wright Brothers Institute. Check meetup to make sure we’re meeting on a particular Friday.
Many people can’t make that time, so join our mailing list to discuss possible times for an alternative session.
We have a mailing list that we use for occasional discussion, but usually just monthly meeting reminders. It’s extremely low traffic and definitely the best way to know what is going on with the group.
We meet meet on the !2nd Wednesday of every month from !7pm to !9pm upstairs at Brixx Ice Company.
This lets us combine our customary after-meeting dinner with the meeting itself. Yum!
Dayton is home of the Dayton Microcomputer Association, one of the country’s oldest computer user groups. DMA serves as an umbrella group for a variety of Special Interest Groups like ours - see DMA’s meetup page.
