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!

Great idea! Glad to see the Lambda Lounge franchise take off! Maybe we can work out an exchange program.... :)

Thanks Alex! For us, you are the source of inspiration. And, hey, exchange program is a good idea! :-)

What, Haskell has to be hidden behind "and so on"? :-)

Hi Peaker,

Actually the group has wonderfully grown in the past weeks, and I originally listed only the "primary interest" language of the first members. We ain't hiding Haskell, and surely many people are interested in it, as you can see from the discussions :-)

Hi Dmitry,

Thank you!
I am fine, just busy. There are quite a few things worth blogging about - so much to do, so little time... But I will be back :-)
