This will be the fourth meeting of our functional programming study group.
We are going to discuss chapter 7 "Purely Functional Parallelism". It's only one chapter this time as chapter 7 is quite long. Please note: we are currently using revision 13 of the book.
Christian has volunteered to get the discussion started and to lead us through the chapter.
What do I have to do in order to join?
All you have to do is read the text (and RSVP). But you will learn/benefit more in my experience if you also try to do some of the exercises. If you put your solutions somewhere publicly accessible (e.g. GitHub) or bring them to the meeting, we can discuss and compare different approaches
What does presenting a chapter involve?
There is no need to prepare slides or anything like that. But you will need to read the text more closely to be able to summarise the individual sections of your chapter for us and lead and encourage the discussion. It will be your call to separate the less important aspects from the more important ones, as we usually have only about 45 mins per chapter.
