Location:: offices of BEST, Hoboken
Meeting Agenda for NYCJUG 20110412
1. Beginner's regatta: some impressions of J - see "J 701 Impressions of an Ordinary User.pdf" and "onBeingSurprisedByAProgrammingLanguage.pdf". 2. Show-and-tell: an example of solving a problem in an array-based manner - see "RedOrBlackGame.pdf". Some timing considerations: granularity and explicit versus implicit looping: see "TimingsExplicitVsImplicitAndCoarseVsFine.pdf". Creating HTML on-the-fly in JHS: see "MoreJHSEmbeddingContent.pdf". 3. Advanced topics: what HTML5 has to offer - see "HTML5 Feature Overview and Some Examples.pdf" and "HowHTML5WillChangeTheWeb.pdf". 4. Learning, teaching and promoting J, et al.: how do we improve the OOB (Out-Of-the-Box) experience of J? See "InitialViewOfJ-StartupMessage.pdf", "Initial Views of Some Programming Environments.pdf", "MatlabIntroExample- Matrices and Magic Squares.pdf", and "Scheme Introduction by Dybvig.pdf".
Red or Black Game Parallelized
An example of running a simulation with multiple instances in parallel is here.
