Haskell Coding Dojo 1.1

According to the brave people who tried our first coding dojo, it was quite enjoyable. We're improving basically everything according to your feedback.

What can you expect?

A fun hour or two solving an interesting problem together with other Haskellers[1]. We'll be solving the same problem we tried on the previous event - you can find the description here. This time you won't have to write both the test and the code - we've already prepared the tests, so you can focus on writing real code. One small twist: you won't actually see all the tests, but only the next one to fix. In theory, this should help keep the focus on the next small step.

[1] Haskellers in the broad sense: people who like Haskell, who know Haskell, who'd like to learn Haskell.

Format

We'll take turns sitting at the keyboard (which we'll carefully make sure to have English and Hungarian PC and Mac layouts). You'll get to fix at least one test case, or of course more if it was just a few seconds. Don't worry if you feel stuck, you're not presenting, there's no pressure. We're solving the problem together, it just so happens that you're at the keyboard. Feel completely free to ask anything at all - syntax, ideas, whatever.

Service announcement

We're fresh out of talk proposals for future meetups. Is there anything you'd like to share? Is there anything you'd like to hear about? Anything goes: how to write quicksort, how to use the State monad, what's the point of the point-free style, your favorite project in Haskell. Drop a comment, or mail me at [masked].

This is an English speaking meetup. The venue, drinks and pizza are sponsored by Prezi.

    should be a lot more speedy during the community solution section, i prefer community guided KATA rather than regular DOJO

      I'm afraid I don't understand. When should we have been quicker? Can you explain what you mean by a community guided KATA?

    Thank you guys for attending last night! I definitely learnt something myself and I'm especially happy that pretty much everyone got involved and contributed a few lines. I have pushed our results, you may find them here: https://github.com/abesto/bphug-dojo/commit/0403378f106ad995c3e36e2ce6ddc84494b0ca23 Hoping to see you again for the next occasion!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
