Public WiFi

Access Notes

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.




  • Matt Youell will talk about some of the functional features of C#
  • Echo Nolan will talk about functional reactive programming (FRP) and the reactive-banana library for Haskell. More specifically, a series of worked examples in audio synthesis will be explored, showing the expressive power of FRP; hopefully positively answering the questions: "What can FRP do for me?" and "Why should I bother learning yet another abstraction?"
  • Lyle Kopnicky will present "SKI School: The Combinator Calculus Demystified", covering the SKI-calculus, Peano and Church numerals, and Iota. Fun math games!
  • ...and a lot 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.
