I'm copying an email sent to the arch-general mailing list earlier today:
The class "An Imperfect Introduction to Static Typing" is rescheduled to Sunday, May 17th at 23:00 UTC. HalosGhost is in the middle of moving and will not have internet at home at the original time. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will still be able to attend. Thank you for understanding.
HalosGhost will teach a class, "An Imperfect Introduction to Static Typing", on Thursday, 14 May 2015 at 21:30 UTC. It will tentatively be held in #archlinux-classroom. The class is expected to take about 1.5 hours.
Static typing is where the type of data a variable will hold is defined when the program is written, and that definition is enforced during the program's run. In this class learn the basics to start reasoning about functions written in statically typed languages and understand the differences between static typing and dynamic typing. The class is for beginners to static typing. There are no prerequisites.
