Monthly FMUG Meetup

It's going to be a Haskell night. Two presentations, one for beginners one for experienced Haskellers.

Andy Kitchen will be giving us an Introduction to Haskell (with seriously, no maths, no monads and no categories). You will get a birds eye view of programming with Haskell. He will go from the syntax all the way up to solving real problems (better than you did before).  Then will touch briefly on every major feature of Haskell and how to can use them to write better programs, eliminate bugs and express ideas with a higher fidelity. It will be for anyone with programming experience, there will be no monads, no categories and no heads scratched.

Lyndon Maydwell will be giving a talk "GHC Extensions - Turbo Haskell". This talk will cover a few of the more popular extensions (with code examples) in an effort to explain some of the shortcomings  shortcuts, and genuinely useful and powerful applications of the Glorious Glasgow Compilation System. Target audience will be comfortable with writing and compiling Haskell programs.

The doors to get into the office lock at 6pm. If you come later than that you'll need to give me a call on[masked] to let you in.

    I'm preparing a 5-10 minute run down (very brief) of what I saw at Lambda Jam. I can probably do that tomorrow night (although it sounds like a full schedule already), or next month.
