Wow, I must say that Ed's presentation last night was one of the best in the history of this group! Why? Ed recorded his interviews with the rock stars and played them as he went through the talk. Cool!

That meant we got to hear the voices of rock stars like James Gosling as they talked about what matters most to them in the software development world. 

And, that's not all. 

We had new faces, like:

 Mandela

Evan

Rafael

and Ramya

A good time was had by all. Meanwhile, Edson has volunteered to give a talk at next month's meeting. Here are the topics:

Take a look and help decide by voting on which is the best one to hear.

If you'd like to present or sponsor (thanks to Evan of TekSystems for last nights delicious pizza and bev!) just shoot me an email or PM me. 

...Best,

Mike

That’s right! A repeat performance would be great!

Apparently the 2nd Thursday of the month is a big day for evening group meetings, so the attendance could have been better.  So, I'm very open to giving the talk again if it the opportunity arises. 

Happy 10th year, JCertif!

Effectful Effects - Unifying Bidirectional Communication between Software Components

Yizhou Zhang, Assistant Professor at the University of Waterloo, presented bidirectional algebraic effects, a new programming abstraction that subsumes current control flow patterns (e.g., exceptions, promises, generators) while supporting bidirectional control flows. With the new typed abstraction, all declared effects are handled, and no effects are accidentally handled by the wrong handler.
