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.
- Paul deGrandis on Clojure data structures and reducers. Reducers are based on monoids and protocols, and automatically parallelize folding and mapping on sequences/collections.
- Leif Warner on Idris, a general purpose pure functional programming language with dependent types. "Idris is a language perhaps between Haskell and Scala, but with dependent types. For the most part it looks much like Haskell, only types and values share the same namespace. Other features it offers are things like a simple FFI to C, idiom brackets, and extensible syntax."
- ...and much more!
ABOUT THE GROUP: Join programmers, researchers and enthusiasts to discuss functional programming. pdxfunc is a study/user group exploring the world of functional programming based in Portland, Oregon. The group welcomes programmers interested in all functional languages, including Haskell, Erlang, OCaml, Scala, and others. The group meets regularly and provides presentations, demos and discussions applicable to all skill levels, from newbies and experts. The meetings are usually on the second Monday of the month.
