Haskell Intro to Typeclassopedia

Presenter: Handré Stolp

The talk was going to cover some bare basics of Haskell and then lead into the Typeclassopedia but due to time constraints will only be an introduction to Typeclassopedia. 

The Typeclassopedia explains some of the fundamental type classes in Haskell and how they are related. We will be aiming to cover Functor, Applicative and Monoid in this talk leaving the rest to a follow up talk.

The talk will focus on a practical example showing the typeclasses and use.

The source code for the talk and the slides can be found at git hub It is done as a literate Haskell file.

Here are some links for those who are interested:

* The Typeclassopedia page:

* A nice cheat sheet for Haskell syntax:

* A good on-line book to learn Haskell:
