  1. Presentation: Jamey Sharp will give us a walk-through of the Haskell gzip deflate algorithm code that he and Josh Triplett developed.

  2. Group coding activity: We'll split up into groups that will each try to build an FP app from scratch in an hour, and then share the results with everyone. We'll make teams with people of different skill levels, so having FP coding skills will be useful but not required. My hope is this activity will give more folks a chance to explore and learn from others how to design and implement an FP app. Sample app ideas: blog, Twitter-clone, Sinatra-like web-framework, message queue client/server, filesystem directory browser, CSV-to-JSON converter, etc.

ABOUT: 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.

VENUE: You can enter the event space through the glass doors on 7th that are close to the intersection with Clay, or through the front door and just look for signs to the event space. There will be pdxfunc signs on both.
