where schemers and lispers meet at 29C3


Welcome Meeting

We'll meet at our assembly on the 27th at 12:30 to coordinate our schedule and/or do some warm-up hacking.

Opening hours


Who should come?

Everyone with an interest in lisp like functional programming. Yes, that includes arc, clojure or your own obscure lisp like dialect. Feel free to tell us about it.

Do I need to bring something?

Nothing special, the usual equipment suffices. For the workshops bring your computing device and a network cable, as we will be always short on those.

Can I give a Lisp/Scheme related Talk/Workshop?

Of course! We are open for anyone! You want to fill in your idea in the table below and drop by and hang around with us!

Planned "events"

We plan to get some talks and hands on workshops organised. Stay tuned!
