This month, we will be meeting on April 28 at 6:30 PM EDT at OmniTI's Columbia Office.
NOTE THE CHANGE IN VENUE!
One of our new members, Devon O'Dell, will be giving an introduction to Plan 9. He will be showing off some of the basics:
(stuff about using rio, mouse chording, editing the terminal buffer, etc). It'd get into plumbing (e.g. RFC:1234 + middle click = you get to read RFC 1234), private namespaces (goodbye $PATH), and importing / exporting the network stack, which will be demonstrated to work both ways using different network stacks.
If time permits, I might get a bit into some of the differences between Plan 9's implementation of C and its C library as well. (For instance, Plan 9 has polymorphism in structs, and a `typestr' keyword which allows for operator overloading, among other things).
This sounds interesting. Thanks, Devon.
After the meeting, we'll find a nearby place to grab some food and drink.
