What was your first programming language? How many of a long list of languages have you heard of? (or even used! Me? 20+!) What is a programming language anyway? Did you know at least one language was co-designed by a physician? (MUMPS) We'll meet online during DeveloperWeek 2021. Via the magic of social VR we will meet inside a giant computer surrounded by retro equipment inside Ye Olde Charles Babbage Memorial Computer History Museum!
This informal online meetup is unaffiliated with DeveloperWeek.com, the world's largest event for software developers, but we encourage you to attend!
