This week’s Unicorn’s Horn comes to you from a McDonald’s, deep in the mountains of Virginia.
The Unicorn’s Horn is a weekly summary of what we have been up to lately at Mendicant University. It should come in handy for folks who want to keep up with what we are working on, but don’t have time to read each and every one of our updates.
This past Monday a number of Mendicant Community members met over Skype and discussed how to keep Mendicant moving forward. This discussion was spurred after Greg stepped down as the driving force behind Mendicant.
Shane Emmons concluded the OSS clinic survey and published the results for everyone to see. The Survey was very encouraging. Keep an eye out for an OSS Clinic featuring Rubinius in the near future.
The forum saw some activity. faiswulff asked, ”where should I go next” and what beginner focused programs mendicant had to offer. rafadc continued the discussion on Beautiful Visualization with Chapter 1: On Beauty. Perhaps you could stop by and lend your voice to these discussions.
