This month we have two talks. They are:
Xmonad: data-structures and patterns for a killer haskell application. by Mark Hibberd
This talk will explore the internals of xmonad, a tiling X11 window manager. In what most would call an inherently stateful domain, it turns out that pure-fp is un-unpractical. Using the functions of xmonad as a driver, I will cover organisation of code, the data structures and extending xmonad functionality. The talk will be approx 45 minutes, with hopefully 10 - 15 minutes of questions.
Courses in Purely Functional Programming by Tony Morris
This talk will explore the means in which people can learn purely functional programming using a language such as Haskell

    where T : IEquatable<T>
    where T2 : IEquatable<T>
    { if (!a.Equals(default(T)))
    { if (!b.Equals(default(T)))
    return f(a, b);
    Func<T2, R> curried = x => f(a, x);
    return curried;
    } return f;

    good talk on Xmonad and stimulating conversation with Tony 'the Haskell Evangelist' Morris. It had me revisiting functional patterns in c# first thing this morning!
