The next meeting of BayPIGgies will be Thurs September 9 at 7:30pm.  It
will feature a presentation about pyscheme by Danny Yoo.  Haven't had
time to update the web site, so here's Danny's summary:

    http://hkn.eecs.berkeley.edu/~dyoo/python/pyscheme/

    o  A quick introduction to Scheme, and how it's similar to Python.

    o  A sketch of how pyscheme works.

    o  Demo of the program itself.

    o  Discussion on a core problem when implementing Scheme in Python:
       Recursion!

        - Python's recursion limit.
        - How to deal with it: bouncing functions on trampolines.

    o  Maybe even continuations, if I haven't lost the audience by then.


BayPIGgies meetings are in Stanford, California.  For more information
and directions, see http://www.baypiggies.net/


Before the meeting, some people will meet at 6pm for dinner in downtown
Palo Alto.  Ducky Sherwood is handling that; please send RSVPs

Discussion of dinner plans is handled on the BayPIGgies mailing list.
