Sayeret Lambda

After delivering the keynote at JavaEdge2009, Ted Neward asserted that Israel is ready for the "polyglot" era. Ronen, Ophir and I decided to verify this assertion, so we are happy to announce the creation of "Sayeret Lambda", the Israeli "Lambda Lounge"! The group contains researchers, consultants, students, and industry professionals, interested in Scala, Clojure, Erlang, Lisp, Prolog, Smalltalk, Ruby, Fan, Groovy and so on...

Our first meeting is going to take place on March 10th, and is dedicated to Lisp and Clojure. In April we are going to host Gilad Bracha's talk about Newspeak. Both talks will be in Hebrew.

Programming language geeks in Israel are welcome to join us!
