       Description


       This Month=    GOING PAPERLESS & STEVE JOBS:
 Jay Kappmeier will demonstrate how to use a document scanner to digitally
 archive important paper documents, such as receipts, tax forms, etc. He will
 discuss what must be kept on paper and what you can scan and get rid of, and
 how searchable PDFs can be made of those documents, so your important papers
 will become much more accessable. We will also show the Steve Jobs video
 from the Bloomberg Game Changer Series. It is a fascinating look into the
 man and the ideas behind the products we prefer to use.
 So come join us for what should be an informative evening!
 The meeting begins with our regular Q&A and Tips&Tricks Session.

	How to Build an Online Brand
				      Thu, April 14, 12pm . 1pm					                     1234 Washington Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63103
					      
		This is the monthly mtng of the StL chapter of the Society of Professional Journalist but it has appeal for IT techies.
		
		"How do you Build Your Online Brand?"

		      How do you make a name for yourself in these days of online overload, with journalists, bloggers, commenters and everyone else with access to the Internet competing for attention? Many successful "web-eneurs" have established a personal brand and, with the help of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, made their own name and their sites go-to destinations on the Web.

		      The St. Louis Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will look at how to set up, polish and market your personal brand, and the potential pitfalls of putting too much of yourself out there, at its next lunch gathering.

	The lunch will feature:
					      
			      Evan Benn, who in just a couple of years at the Post-Dispatch has made himself and his Hip Hops blog reliable and popular sources for all things hops-related across the region.

			      Angela Ortmann, who has used her stlwinegirl website and web identity to build up an event and consultation business. Earlier this year, the Riverfront Times honored her for Best Use of Facebook to Promote a Personal Brand in its Point & Clique awards.

			      Chad Garrison, writer and blog manager/editor at the Riverfront Times, and one of the judges of its Point & Clique awards, honoring the best use of the Web by local people and groups.

			      Scott Granneman, an expert on web security and adjunct professor at Washington University in St. Louis, teaching courses on technology, security, and the Internet. He also plans, develops and hosts websites.

			      The lunch is set for noon Thursday, April 14, at Lucas Park Grille, 1234 Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis. Cost (including soft drink and tip) is $10 for SPJ members and $12 for nonmembers.

Title:	Clojure: Art of Abstraction

			      Presented By:	 Alex Miller (Revelytix)
	
	About the Presentation:	
			      Clojure is a new language that combines the power of Lisp with an existing hosted VM ecosystem (the Java VM). Clojure is a dynamically typed, functional, compiled language with performance on par with Java.  At the heart of all programming lies the need for abstraction, be it abstraction over our data or abstraction over the processes that operate upon it.  Clojure provides a core set of powerful abstractions and ways to compose them.  These abstractions are based in a heritage of Lisp but also cover many aspects of object-oriented programming as well.  This talk will examine these abstractions and introduce you to both Clojure and functional programming.  Attendees are not expected to be familiar with either Clojure or FP.
