Group member Craig Andera is speaking about Clojure at this month’s
ALT.NET meeting. It’s being held at the Motley Fool’s offices in
Alexandria, 5 minutes from the Metro stop, on Wednesday, January 27,
at 7pm.

It sounds like a talk for those who are interested in what Clojure
does from a general programming perspective. The group is for .NET
enthusiasts. So it will probably be as much about STM and concurrency
as it is about the language's history, projects, and syntax. Does that
sound right, Craig?

If possible, come and support Craig and represent the Clojure world.

Hope to see some of you there. There's usually pizza.

I've been to a few of the ALT.NET meetings. I can testify that the
ones I have been to are no less relevant to me as a non-Microsoft
programmer than other meetings I attend (Ruby, Java, etc.). So I
suggest that if the Microsoft heritage of the meetings is deterring
anyone, there's no need to be deterred. I like both the people and
the venue there.

Microsoft in general, the
