pdxfunc: Portland Functional Programming Study Group
Enter the Dekum building in the middle of the block on the West side of 3rd Avenue, between Washington and Alder. Meetings are in 4th floor basketball court.
- Lyle Kopnicky will present the design of a DSL for validating JSON structures from Janrain. It's in Ruby, but functional-inspired.
- Nathan Collins will present on a core language for better records in Haskell. These primitives build a record system with a nice surface language syntax that offers benefits over the traditional Haskell records: first-class records, reusable field names, row polymorphism, direct setting/modifying nested fields, extensible records, polymorphic updates, etc.
- ...and more!
