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
