Think Japanese is hard? Confusing? Well, you’re wrong!

This talk will introduce a totally different way of looking at Japanese grammar and structure that is immediately understandable to functional programmers. It will also reveal some hidden gems and amazing features of Japanese. If you like functional programming, Japanese, or both, this is going to blow your mind.

Trevor Alexander finished his MS in Electrical Engineering this year, and holds a minor in Japanese from the University of Hawaii. He has worked as a freelance Japanese translator on and off for nine years, and can speak, read, and write on a business and technical level.

「日本語、むずいなぁ」って思ったことあるかい?そいつは間違いだ!

トレバー・アレクサンダーは今年電子工学の修士号をハワイ大学から得て、日本語の副専攻も卒業しています。9年に渡り、ビジネスと技術内容をさばき、フリーの翻訳者として活動してきました。

Trevor Alexander, HICapacity member and UH student liaison, will be giving an informal technical talk about rBCI, a tool for quickly validating brain-computer interfaces. The first half of the talk will be concerned with the background, purpose, and implications of hackerspaces and BCI, while the second half of the talk will focus on the code, design, and implementation of rBCI.

Bring your brain, your computer, and let’s interface!

OUDL is having a Swift discussion. Bring your laptops and follow along and be sure to participate in the discussion!

From the Meetup event:

Warning: May include functional programming and excessive Playgrounds.

A little bit of time has gone by since our last Swift meetup. It’s time to regroup and have a discussion on Swift.

The agenda is simple:

  • Discuss interesting Swift language features, guided by suggestions or led by my Playgrounds
  • Go over the GitHub project that I’ve put together to guide the PNM workshop in March (beta testing!)

Our focus will be on guided discussion and writing a lot of code together.
