The Haskell Workshop

Join us for an evening of collaborative Haskell hacking! Whether you are a pure beginner and just getting started or a more experienced Haskeller looking to share your experience, you're sure to meet interesting people, sharpen your skills, and have a great time!

To make the most of the workshop, we recommend you bring your laptop. It's worth trying to get Haskell set up before you come, too – that way you'll have more time for hacking. But if you run into trouble, don't worry: we'll have experts on hand who can help you get everything set up at the beginning of the meetup. For this month's talk, it would also be helpful to have Emacs installed; our speakers will be using version 24.3.

This month, Kat and Andrey will be giving you a quick intro to Emacs, an ancient and powerful text editor that's favored by many Haskellers for its intense customization and integration capabilities. The brief talk will be given in the middle of the workshop, and you're encouraged to follow along if you're interested in giving Emacs a try; if not, you're welcome to continue hacking on other projects. After the talk, both speakers will be available to help you out with your own Emacs setup.

In the past, we've had lectures on installing Haskell and on the basics of Haskell's type system and the GHCi REPL, and we're always looking for interesting new topics to cover. If you're interested in speaking at a future workshop, get in touch!

Kat Chuang has worked in many industries, from librarianship to healthcare to e-commerce, and has developed a unique voice for describing technical concepts to a diverse audience. Although she's new to Haskell, she's a co-organizer of The Haskell Workshop and The New York Haskell Hackathon. She is also an active volunteer in the Python world and leads the NYC Pyladies chapter.

Andrey Chudnov is a doctoral candidate in Computer Science at Stevens Institute of Technology.  His passion for Haskell began in 2006 at Chalmers, where he was taught by QuickCheck creator Koen Claessen.

    My trains are still suspended, I hope they clear up...

      I hope you may make slides available? The trains are still unreliable, and it sounds like an extra 2hours RT. I will be setting up and watching the Pycon video on coding python with emacs through voice , https://www.youtube.co...­

    Excited for this.
    I'm definitly going to be trying to find someone to clear some things up.

    Also, if anyone's working with/on Idris ( so am I !!! )

    If you could use extra help with getting people started with Haskell and setting up a nice dev environment in Emacs (haskell-mode + ghc-mod), let me know.

      I am new to haskell and emacs so won't be able to go into depth on this topic. Would you be willing to share your experience with haskell mode + ghc-mod?

      January 25, 2014

    • Andrey C.

      Yeah, I could do a short (10~15 mins) walk through my setup and show a few features of haskell-mode and ghc-mod after your intro to Emacs. Perhaps, we should synchronize via e-mail to make sure there's a smooth transition between the two tutorials.

    https://github.com/chrisdone/structured-haskell-mode chris done has a very snazzy "structured haskell mode". Its pretty new, but i've heard positive things.

      Is it out of the early-alpha-it-might-bre­ak-your-stuff phase yet?

    Just got Haskell-mode up and running and can't wait for some stellar insights, I just won't tell VIM i'm cheating on it, but I think it knows anyway.

      Yes, it is! Thanks for reminding me to update the description!

      P.S. I will not be talking for 3 hrs. I will be giving my presentation (< 30 mins) towards the beginning.

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.
