Inaugural Meetup, A Haskell meetup for greater a good

I am open to ideas for topics and activities. If anyone wants to present let me know.  I was thinking that we could do some hacking so bring a laptop if that interests you or you can pair up if you don’t have one. I’d like to thank UberOffices http://uberoffices.com/ for the space, here are the details for getting there:

1400 Key Blvd
Suite 100 (1st Floor, not lobby level)
Arlington, VA 22209

Driving: Plenty of metered street parking in the area.

Metro: Rosslyn (orange/blue).  Take the Skywalk escalator and turn immediately LEFT at the top; you'll go up some stairs and under a temporary cover on the skywalk.  The mirrored doors all the way at the end enter our building - elevator lobby is at the end of the hall.  Take the elevators up to the first floor (which is different than lobby level).

    Hey everyone; in case anyone's interested in playing with the "Sampler" monad that we played around with on Monday, I uploaded the code here:

    Cancelling due to sickness rather than being the cause of everyone else getting sick for Christmas.

    I have a beginning Haskell presentation which I will be happy to present if there is interest.

    I wrote a blog post on some ideas and thoughts about the meetup:

    Also I created Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus accounts for the meetup, details are in the post.

    Allow me to echo the requests for a more introductory level first meet up. Working through Learn you a Haskell right now. Would also like to see a later meet up highlighting the web frameworks available for Haskell, and how to hello world them.

    Is there anyone who'd like to study an introductory textbook on Haskell with me, where we communicate via email and share code examples?

      It's not as simple as a yes/no answer for me, though it might be for Heath. What's your email address? Feel free to make it a puzzle if you don't feel comfortable posting it where bots can see.

    Would any of you be willing to let me join remotely via Google Hangouts, Skype, or some other service? I'm trying to drum up a meetup here in Nashville,TN with no luck so far (meetup.com/fantasy-land was too vague it seems and this one I'm hoping will just take time to grow: www.meetup.com/The-Haskell-Study-Group/), and I'm looking to hang with other Haskellers regularly.

      Thanks for the response Vos and Geoff. Geoff, would you mind adding me on Google+ so we can hangout or if you prefer skype, I can do that (aisrev is my nickname).

      I would also love to join this meetup but would have to join remotely as I live in Florida. I would be delighted if I was also permitted to be part of this google hangout.

    I can do a presentation and hack some. There's a surprisingly practical hack-driven approach to decomposing academic papers on some pretty abstract stuff where the would-be hacker's goal is to define terms satisfying the type checker. Specifying the term that satisfies the type checker is considered a successful hack and a witness, or proof, consistent with constructive logic. I've done this up to polytypic, or kind-level, proofs with associated commutative diagrams in xypic.

      Hi Rick, For the first meetup, we probably want to keep everything pretty introductory so if you want to present more intro level that would be great. I hope to do more advanced topics in the future, so that would be nice as well.
