I’ve narrowed down the date of the meeting to the weekend of October 12-13, either Saturday or Sunday, whichever makes it easier for people to attend.

If you are planning to come to the “Gambit at 30” meeting, please respond to the list with your availability and preferred date, and also fill in the “Gambit at 30” Doodle poll:


If you would like to come but aren’t sure you can make it happen, then fill in the Doodle poll with only “if need be” markers.

I’m looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible to put a face on some users I have never met in person before and hear your feedback.  The event will take place at the Université de Montréal, so we have large auditoriums if needed! ;-)

Please respond ASAP.  In early September, I will use this data to select the date the meeting will take place and will inform you by email so you can make final travel plans.

There will be a number of presentations by myself and students on recent developments:

- R7RS conformance and modules
- Universal backends
- Native backends (including RISC-V)
- “Gambit forensics” benchmarking tool
- geiser support
- “Gambit on bare metal”

I’m hoping some of you will also have material to present (experience using Gambit, a Gambit app you have built, tools, suggestions, etc).

> This year is the 30th anniversary of Gambit.  To mark the occasion I am planning to organize a 1-2 day meeting this fall in Montreal if enough people can attend.  The content remains to be determined but I can imagine some more-or-less formal presentations by me and attendants, brainstorming sessions and maybe some hacking on Gambit.  To maximize attendance the meeting will be on a weekend, probably in September or October.
