WYLUG Monthly Meeting: Monday 08 Oct 2007

September 30th, 2007

Talk:

  • The Lua Programming Language: It’s Cool

Lua is a remarkably expressive programming language, given its strong focus on simplicity. Although not widely used, it has come into its own as a scripting language within applications, especially games. Its straight-forward C API makes it easy to embed within software written in other languages, and its small size and fast virtual machine make it an appropriate choice for performance-critical applications.

  • 6:30 p.m. Tea and coffee and chat.

  • Tom Hall — The ZFS File System

Date:

  • Monday, 09 Jully 2007

Directions:

Tom Hall will be extending his June talk on the ZFS filesystem to give us the full range of demos that we didn’t have time for this month.

I think that pretty much everone who attended the June meeting will agree with me that we had two of the most interesting talks for a very long time. So I’d like to take this opportunity to thank John Leach and Tom Hall, once again, for delivering them. Both were exemplary in quality and content. Indeed, I can’t remember the last time that two such topics generated so much ‘after-hours’ discussion in the pub.

I’d also like to encourage anyone who missed the first part of Tom’s talk to come along to see the demos. On the basis of June’s experience, I very much doubt that anyone will have trouble following and enjoying the demos, just because they missed the first part of the talk.

Appeal For Speakers and Topics

There’s still a slot open alongside Tom at July’s meeting, but I’d also like to remind everyone, that we have a lot of future meeting slots to fill.

Generally speaking it’s a lot easier for both presenters and organisers if we can plan things well in advance.

With that in mind, I’d also urge any member who doesn’t feel qualified to present a talk themselves, but is keen to hear someone else explaining a particular topic, to make suggestions on the wylug-discuss list.
