Curry and other Haskell spices

Have you ever heard about currying and partially applied functions? Would you want to know what you could do if you could create new functions on-the-fly by using existing ones? We're going to explore something which is a core part of the language.

We'll spend the evening introducing these ideas and work our way upwards, getting through the basics of what facilities Haskell offers to you with regards to shaping functions to your liking and eventually showing what cool stuff you could do with these methods.

If you're interested in holding a talk (short or long), contact me through the group main page and we'll see if we can schedule you in!

    Interesting talks, but somewhat confusing to a functional programming newbie like me. Fun to learn new concepts, though. On the downside: Having a whiteboard as a projection screen caused quite some glare, at least during Mike's talk since he was using a white background.

      Thanks for attending!

      About the whiteboard, this is a problem we haven't solved yet (we don't have a projector screen at the moment). I hope I can fix something for the next event.

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.
