      Natural Sciences Complex - Room 220

Putnam Way - UB North Campus, Amherst , NY

Our very own well known and world famous Oliver Kennedy will be 
discussing databases and programming languages. NSC is more or less 
between the Governor's and Hochstetter parking lots. No permit is 
required after 3PM.

We'll continue with light refreshments as we've been doing. Let's set 
7:00 as the meet and get settled time with the talk starting at 7:15. 
Please rsvp so I know how many are coming. We have a new sponsor: Empire 
Innovation Group is a full service software, development, and consulting 
operating in the financial and healthcare benefit service industries. (I 
also still have a little of dooli's money to spend on this next meetup.)

Here is the expanded Meetup description.

The field of Databases brings to the table a portfolio of tools and 
building blocks that include Index data structures, Algorithms for 
common data-management tasks, and a number of well-understood, flexible 
models for data and query processing.  The field of Programming 
Languages brings to the table tools such as formal analysis, language 
design, and program equivalence.

Recently, these two areas have seen an upsurge in cross-pollinated 
research and system-development efforts, rangeing from domain-specific 
languages for data-intensive computing to declarative debugging to new 
approaches to transaction processing and concurrency, through to query 
compilation to machine code.

Over the course of an hour or two, Oliver will pontificate about cool 
things people are doing to unite these two fields, surveying some nifty 
research and industrial projects, and maybe diverging into some
