Alen Ribic will give us an introduction to Cloud Haskell.
Cloud Haskell is a domain-speciﬁc language for developing programs for a distributed computing environment. Implemented as a shallow embedding in Haskell, it provides a message passing communication model, inspired by Erlang, without introducing incompatibility with Haskell’s established shared-memory concurrency.
Alan Ribic is a programmer, currently working for Oracle. His current area of interest is in understanding complexity of large software systems. Focus is on difficulty of testing and informal reasoning rather than computational complexity.
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.
