Monthly Meetup - Haskell, conj summary, and eduwampus!

It's a new month and we're due for a new meetup. So far, it looks like we're going to have a talk on Haskell from Robert Weisser, and a reportback on Clojure/conj from Michael Church.

Milt Reder will also be demoing eduwampus, the EdTech Startup generator - focusing on using data.generators to make random data repeatable.

If you've got something you want to present, explore, hack on... get in touch! Anything related to Clojure, Lisp, FP etc. is fair game.

There's still room for more, so let us know what you want to talk about, or what you'd like to hear about!

    Here's "Clojure: the JFDI Language" in its final form (minus proprietary stuff): https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/15-7qFy6URdE7Owi2LitkQI_OHBu1AFWPUwHxgBc-O4E/edit?usp=sharing

    We talked about test frameworks last night, hot off the presses, Chas Emerick released a port of Reid Draper's simple-check (inspired by haskell's quickcheck) to clojurescript, called double-check: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/clojurescript/eWS-FiCP__g

      That's awesome. I'm super happy Reid's project is getting some cljs support.

    I'll see your apology for bailing early and raise you an excuse - I'm in Annapolis, so staying late can be a little rough.

    Thanks, Robert, for the Haskell intro. Mike is quite right that it's a great language. One thing I'll add is that, in my opinion, a fundamental step in grokking Haskell is getting a true sense for the core abstractions. To that end, I'd recommend those interested look at the Typeclassopedia, which provides a solid overview. Also worth noting that GHC has an extension, TemplateHaskell, that's similar in spirit to macros.

      Goodness do I ever double that recommendation. The Typeclassopedia is probably the only realistic way to get a good intro founding to Monads. Monad tutorial blog posts tend to leave out way too much detail.

    Also, here's a link to the (still somewhat incomplete) Clojure/conj write-up. It's about 65% complete. Anyone who was there should comment to correct me. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1W-K3eoPB46hsH-MvYy-ON2x1Do8_mIzO0AH1si95vqI/edit

    Haskell's a great language. When you finally get it, it kicks you in the monads.

    Great talks from Robert and Mike! Haskell is always a lot of fun and some of the conj talks ill be excited to investigate more deeply. Sorry I had to duck out early!

    Won't make it out of work in time to head down. Blerg.

    Bummer, this looks great but I'm on travel for school that day :(

    I can give a summary of the Conj for anyone who doesn't make it this time, because I'll be going (and, my energy levels willing, to all the talks). The lineup for the 2013 Conj is fantastic.

      Yes! Will add to agenda.
