ML SIG Seattle is a gathering of people interested in the ML family of
functional programming languages.  These include Standard ML, OCaml, and
other such.

We will meet Thursday, July 8, at 7:00 pm at

The Stumbling Monk
1635 E. Olive Way
at corner of Olive and Belmont
kitty corner from the B&O Restaurant

Beware that the advertizement as seen from the street is extremely low key.
The sign in the window is hardly noticeable and the awning above the front
door still says "TYPING" on it. Due to the popularity of the rotating
specialty brews offered, the owner really has no need for additional
salesmanship. I imagine if you ask the locals, they can point you at it.
Especially local shopkeepers.

Things to know about The Monk:

- it serves yummy Belgian beers!
- it is non-smoking
- it isn't very big
- it's low-lit
- they have chips, feel free to order a pizza from elsewhere
- parking is typical Capitol Hill parking, i.e. bad

Non-exhaustive topics of interest to me personally:
- OCaml
- MLton
- how well these things work on Windows
- optimization rigamaroles, profiling
- interfacing to C
- 3D graphics
- OpenGL bindings
- AI
- game development
- functional vs. imperative vs. OO programming
- commercialization
- making money
