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

    static dynamic CurryTest<T, T2, R>(Func<T, T2, R> f, T a = default(T), T2 b = default(T2))
    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!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
