Brian Hurt will deliver for us, his presentation on static typing. I caught his presentation twice last year. Yeah, it was that good. First time made me shut up and think (and as anyone who knows me, that's not easy to do). 2nd time Made Haskell inevitable.

    The talk was great! Brian gave a lot of historical perspective which made it all make a lot of sense.

    The talk was so good that I remained on my seat even I really wanted to go to the restroom!

    thank you Brian for a new perspective on "time to Done Done"! Here is Brian's [LibreOffice] presentation odt, ; and his Video from a prior meetup ,
    [ny-haskell] A Pragmatic Case for Static Typing with Brian Hurt on Vimeo
    from Richard Minerich Plus 5 months ago Link:[masked]/
    ...why Haskell programmers are so enthusiastic about static typing: it helps produce working code sooner. It will consider problems programmers face in producing working code (in any language), and show how Haskell mitigates or solves them. No knowledge of Haskell is assumed.
    Subjects touched on will include:
    - Preventing null pointer exceptions
    - Speeding up finding and fixing bugs
    - Problems with large scale development
    - "Don't do that!" doesn't work- what does?
    - Types as documentation
    - Types and parallel programming
    - Types vs. Macros: more than one way to skin a cat
