We have a special treat in store this month. Tracy Harms, is coming down from Columbus to talk to us about J the Programming Language.

“Three looks at J”
I’ll introduce the J language by focusing on three short topics. To start, a simple introduction to fundamental features such as arrays and syntax. Next I’ll show how J scales beyond its infamous one-liners by examining sentences and scripts. Finally, I’ll compare and contrast J with the mainstream of functional programming languages.

Tracy Harms, a software developer with Pillar Technology Group LLC, became enamored with J in 2005. He began programming in 1974.

Also, since our meeting falls on Valentine’s Day, there will be tasty cake!
