Indy ALT.NET has transitioned to IndySA!

We have all enjoyed our years of great meetings and awesome discussions. However, we feel that in order for us to grow in the direction we want, a new name is required. This decision was not taken lightly, and there was much debate on whether to do this -- and even more debate on what the new name should be. When the dust settled and the blood dried (figuratively speaking, of course) we had ourselves a new name:

Indy Software Artisans

Aside from the name change, we've also implemented a slightly different meeting style. Most, if not all, meetings will now consist of both a "soft" or more abstract topic as well as a "hard" or very techy, deep down in the code, topic. As always, everybody is free and encouraged to make suggestions to improve our meetings.

So, without further ado, here's IndySA!

Get your Erlang on!

Thursday, December 15, 2011 - 5:30pm

Bryan Hunter

Would you like to build massively parallel, distributed, fault-tolerant, cross-platform, easily maintainable systems with less code and look cool doing it? If so, the opensource programming language Erlang has some real sweet spots for you. If you're unfamiliar with Erlang you may be surprised to learn how battle tested it is: Facebook's chat backend, CouchDB, RabbitMQ, GitHub's backend and Amazon's SimpleDB are all written in Erlang, and every phone call you make is likely helped along by some Erlang somewhere.

Lightning Bowl

Thursday, November 17, 2011 - 6:00pm


Show up at 6 for news or a minitalk (a little before for Social Pizza©).
We'll start the lightning bowl at 6:30, and probably go get some beer afterwards.

What's a lightning bowl?  It's a mix between lightning talks (where you bring your own short talk), and a fishbowl (roundtable disucssion style).  So, bring your own discussion topic, and we'll discuss several of them for 20-30 minutes each.
One topic we already thought of is: Change Mother $^%#er, Do You Speak It?
See you there.

Javascript Day

Thursday, October 20, 2011 - 5:30pm

Note:  We're changing the time up just a little.  Food (pizza)/networking from 5:30-6:00.  Then some kind of informal starter at 6, till 6:30 or so.  Then the real deal gets going at 6:30.

We've got a bunch of little javascript talks queued up.  If you want to talk about Javascript, you can come and do yours too (~10-20 minutes).
Backbone, jQuery, Node, Reactive, Amplify, Knockout, Pusher, Coffee Script, Sproutcore and more.

Join the MakerBot revolution!

Thursday, September 15, 2011 - 5:30pm

Bill Steele

Join us as we host William Steele, maker of his own MakerBot Cupcake CNC.  In this session, Bill will discuss the history, construction and usage of his MakerBot Cupcake CNC.  You'll see how you can use one of these fantastic homebrew CNC 3D Printers to construct anything you can imagine.  You'll also learn how you can utilize the Thing-A-Verse to find, create and share your own ideas with others.  3D Rapid Prototyping is a fast growing segment of the homebrew space... here's your chance to see what all the fuss is about!

Mobile Web Development

Thursday, August 18, 2011 - 5:30pm

Sasha Kotlyar

Lightning Bowl

Thursday, July 21, 2011 - 5:30pm


We're trying something new this month - a lightning bowl! Calm down, Zeus, it's not literally a bowl of lightning that you get to throw at people. It's a lightning talk fishbowl. In other words, bring your own fishbowl topic. So come on by and we'll discuss whatever people want to discuss in a fishbowl format. As always, pizza and networking are at 5:30 and the lightning bowl starts at 6 PM.

A Fishbowl

Thursday, April 21, 2011 - 5:30pm


Please note the location change!
