    Portland Functional Programming Study Group - Haskell Lesson 6 and Free Things

    Collective Agency

    This month, Leif will present Lesson 6 on Lazy Evaluation from Brent Yorgey's CIS 194 lectures.

    Then, Rob Norris will talk about free things.

    Meeting is on the 8th floor of the Tiffany Center. If you arrive before the meeting starts, there will be someone in the lobby to open the front door for you. If not, there will be a sign posted with a phone number for you to call, and someone will come down to let you in. Take the elevator on the right to the 8th floor, and exit to your right. The sign next to the space says Forge Portland. We meet in the large open area there.

    Portland Functional Programming Study Group - Haskell Lesson 5 and the 1ML Language

    Collective Agency

    Join us for another fun-filled evening of learning and discussion!

    Tonight, Lyle will present Lesson 5 from Brent Yorgey's CIS 194 lectures: http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~cis194/spring13/lectures/05-type-classes.html, as well as reviewing the homework from Lesson 4.

    Then, Matt Rice will talk about the 1ML language, a variant of ML which unifies the main expression/type language with the language of the module system (signatures, structures and functors). He's also been creating his own language derived from it.

    PDXFunc - Portland Functional Programming Study Group

    Collective Agency

    We will continue our Haskell lesson series with Lyle delivering Lesson 4 on Higher-Order Programming and Type Inference from Brent Yorgey's CIS194 course.

    Then Michael Beidler will present on full-stack "isomorphic" web apps with Haskell (REST APIs in servant and GHCJS front-ends with react-flux).

    The 8th-floor elevator has been restored to operation, so there are no longer stairs to climb.

    Portland Functional Programming Study Group - Haskell Lesson 3 and Category Theory

    Collective Agency

    This meeting continues our Haskell lesson series with Echo delivering Lesson 3 on Recursion Patterns, Polymorphism, and the Prelude from Brent Yorgey's CIS194 course (http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~cis194/spring13/lectures.html).

    Lyle will give an introduction to category theory, a theory about mathematical structures and their relationships, which has applications in functional programming.

    The meeting will be at Collective Agency in the Tiffany Center - the same place as the February meeting. The elevator is expected to be restored to operation by then. (UPDATE: Elevator service to the 8th floor has not yet been restored, so you will have to walk from the 4th floor.) Someone will wait in the lobby to let you in as the front doors are locked after 6. The meeting is on the 8th floor.
