To the experienced Haskell programmer, monads and monad transformers are bread and butter - basic constructs that we use all the time. But to those unfamiliar, they seem far from basic or common. Encountering monads is often the first point at which experienced developers find learning Haskell difficult.
In this session, I will introduce the monad classes and the monad transformer library. This will be more tutorial than our usual sessions and is intended to help provide a foundation for some of our less experienced members.
If you don't feel you've entirely got your head around this stuff, please come along, and if this sort of session proves popular, perhaps we can do a few more to supplement our regular coding sessions.
Please arrive around 6.30 so we can start at 6.45.
