    Thanks Gergeley for the informative presentation. I learned a lot. :-)

    @Maximilien: that sounds like a very good idea, I've added a tentative entry for this meetup for the[masked], see: We can still decide how we want to go about it later.

    After chatting with Bas, I hope we will get the time to prepare a joined meetup Haskell - Clojure.

    I propose the following canvas :

    Clojure / Haskell : A Probabilistic Approach.
    From monad to logic programming

    Looks promising but we still need to check if we can make it.
    I'm adding 2 other constraints :
    1) no slides , only pure literate code
    2) accessible to everyone : Bas is new to Clojure as I'm to Haskell
