I have been asked to organize the Boston side of an informal Oberon conference slash Oberon meetup. The other half will be in Zurich; Thomas Frey, a Google employee who wrote the WM for AOS when he was a doctoral student at ETHZ, is arranging it. Probably we will decide on a Saturday in April, beginning at noon here and the evening there. I have never organized anything in my life. Please offer any advice that occurs to you. I haven't been to a coding meetup; it looks fun. Are there usually talks at these? Papers? With so little time I must act decisively.

Presenting 4th.CoSy @ SV-FIG Forth Day Hangout @ Stanford Sat.21 . See http://CoSy.com and download a copy ,

[ Google+ under Firefox is throwing away unfinished edits with no backup .  It also lacks the useful HTML markup Disqus allows . ]

I just restructured an ad hoc menu in 4th.CoSy which is illustrates it's natrure .

I keep a block of lines around at the ends of my ' text  window  to present the various essential data variables I keep around .

For instance ,  ` ToDo  is my shopping list . Executing the first line selects which variable I want and prints it for editing in the  ` res  window . Editing the 0 to a 1 would select my  ` ref  window with passwords and license #s , etc , instead .

|)|
| ------------------------ |
  `( ToDo ref Addrs )` 0 _i at dsc ->
  >-  R resvar v@ stype
| ------------------------ |
|(|

The second line retrieves and stores the edited text in the "root"  ` R  dictionary , then retrieves it and re-displays it .

Editing that index is a bother . So I simply displayed the symbol list

|)|
  `( ToDo ref Addrs )`  
|(|

then tapped the F5 key to insert it in my text . The the last CoSy object  displayed is saved in  ` R0  .  So I've changed my menu to this :

|)|
| ------------------------ |
(
 ` ToDo
 ` ref
 ` Addrs
 )
  R0 ->

  >-  R resvar v@ stype
| ------------------------ |
|(|


I just execute the line with the symbol I want ,  then execute the  " R0 -> " line to edit it .
