We will learn about the Haskell Lens package and how we can utilise it to solve problems that are better suited to an imperative programming setting. However Lenses, when combined with Traversals and Folds, are far more powerful than what we are use to seeing.
We get together once a month (every second Monday of the month) to discuss functional programming concepts and languages e.g. Haskell, Clojure, Scala, Erlang etc. We also like comparing these to other languages.
Our goal is to:
help foster and grow a healthy FP community.
build skills by learning from each other.
have some interesting conversations with like-minded people.
keep the fun in functional programming.
We primarily use our Google Group for announcements and discussions.
