Practical Data Processing With Haskell and Putting Cloud Haskell to Work

We're kicking off the New York Haskell Users Group with two great talks, one for people just getting started and one for those with some experience already. Both should be accessible and enjoyable no matter how much (or little) you already know. Food and refreshments will be provided, courtesy of the generosity of Pivotal Labs, and after the talks, we're planning to keep the discussion going over food and drink at a nearby establishment.

7pm - Practical Data Processing With Haskell:
Ozgun Ataman will give an introductory talk on Haskell, diving right in with how you can start using Haskell for practical data manipulation tasks today. You'll be introduced to a typical setup for Haskell development and given a demonstration of how a common data format (CSV, JSON, etc.) can be parsed, processed and finally output using Haskell. The talk will include a small actual Haskell program to be modified live and some commentary around using Haskell in practical applications.

8pm - Putting Cloud Haskell to Work for Distributed Computing:
Gershom Bazerman will give an overview of the new distributed-process library that implements Cloud Haskell, providing computation across heterogeneous nodes through a message passing interface. He will discuss what this new tool provides out of the box, and what you'll have to bring to the table. The talk will include some code samples using the new library, as well as some experience about what it's like to use Haskell for distributed computing in the real world.

Speaker Biographies: Ozgun Ataman is the founder of Soostone, a management consulting and analytics company built on Haskell. He is the author of many open-source Haskell libraries, and is a contributor to the Snap web framework. Gershom Bazerman is a developer at S&P Capital IQ. He is most well known in the Haskell community as the author of the JMacro library for programmatic generation of JavaScript, and for one well-received April fools joke.

    I found the first talk useful as well as interesting. The second talk was beyond my depth in both Haskell and concurrent programming. The speakers knew what they were talking about, but occassionally omitted clarifying steps. In this regard they are alike most other techincal speakers.

    Haskell is back from the dead and living well in NYC. :-)

    Amazing speakers, beer, location, and networking. The best meetup I've ever been to.

    This was a great meetup. Both speakers gave professional and knowledgeable presentations of their respective materials.

    Because I'm bad at calendars, this is next month in November? (yes I know it says that, but I somehow was thinking it was sooner!)

    • Gershom B.

      Yes, November with an N. The eleventh (11th) month on the calendar. The month containing Thanksgiving. :-)

    will this event be recorded or slides available? i'm unfortunately not able to attend

    • Gershom B.

      We will try to record it, but details haven't been worked out yet. Slides will definitely be made available.

      Sweet! Thank you Gershom!
