We had a great meetup last night! There were 9 of us who got together at Orsos, had some great food, plenty of drinks, too many laughs and a lot of excellent conversation.
First, I'd like to thank Matt Griswold for sponsoring & hosting the evening. Thank you thank you thank you.
Next, I thought I would put together a few links (which I'll also post to the wiki page) pointing to a few of the things we talked about last night. I couldn't hear everything at the table, so these are the items I remember.
* Celluloid (Ruby Actors)
http://www.unlimitednovelty.com/2011/09/object-oriented-concurrency-deep-dive.html (and others)
* Zed Shaw
If you want to see the rant between Pieter & Zed, look at Pieter's twitter messages from Aug 22, 2011.
Also, a fine reddit thread where Zed got pissed and created his own competitor to 0mq. He basically wrote it in a day or two, released it, and never touched it again. Note the dates on this git repository and the date of the Pieter/Zed twitter smackdown. :)
* Pieter Hintjens
* Pauseless GC in Java
Great interview... links to the whitepaper that gives the technical details:
* FIX & FIX/FAST
(And when I push it, my Ruby FIX library will be here)
Thank you to everyone who participated. We will probably do a quarterly meetup in Chicago going forward, so look for an announcement sometime in January 2012.
