I’ve been regularly attending the talks in the San Francisco and they’ve been consistently excellent. I highly recommend checking out your local chapter if you haven’t already.
Yah, definitely looking forward to Ben’s discussion of Google’s “Spanner”.
There are still meetups for July (http://paperswelove.org/2015/news/july-meetups/) and a growing number of local chapters: http://paperswelove.org/chapter/
Also, when we can, we get videos: http://paperswelove.org/categories/video/
The local communities building up around the papers have been great. I help organize the NYC chapter, and we’re trying to have an informal get together of other chapter leaders attending Strangeloop this year.
EDIT: grammar and added video link
Anyone interested in starting an Akron, OH chapter?
We have one in Columbus. Maybe we could meet in Mansfield sometime. :)
That would be good, since Columbus is a long drive for me ;)
Though the papers are in pdf format the link is actually to a github repo. I think the pdf label has been used for links that are actually pdfs. Therefore, I think the pdf label should be removed from this entry.
Also: No Boston area chapter :( Anyone interested in a Boston area meetup?
There was a Boston chapter, but they fizzled out after their first meetup. Please start another!
I’m unfamiliar with how other folks run their reading groups, but something that we’ve found works very well:
We run a small group, so it’s usually an intimate all-afternoon/evening affair. It’s good to combine it with some kind of cooking and socializing. :)
