  • Relit: Typed Literal Macros for Reason, presented by Cyrus Omar

    Chicago FP is hosting a great meetup and has invited us to join. Below I have conveniently placed Andy's great description of the event. As mentioned below this event will require full names to gain access to the building so if your Meetup profile doesn't use your full name please answer the provided question with that or direct message me. As always our Code of Conduct can be found here (https://www.meetup.com/Chicago-ReasonML/pages/25253072/Code_of_Conduct/) and inclusion is a top priority for us. Description from Chicago FP: ---- https://www.meetup.com/Chicago-Functional-Programming-Meetup/events/255760053/ Reason (https://reasonml.github.io/) is an increasingly popular alternative syntax for OCaml designed by engineers at Facebook to make OCaml more notationally comfortable for contemporary programmers. However, Reason, following OCaml, builds in literal notation for only a few common data structures, e.g. list literals like [x, y, z], array literals like [|x, y, z|], and JSX literals, which support an extension of HTML notation. This approach is unsatisfying because there are many other possible data structures for which literal notation might be useful, e.g. for finite maps, regular expressions, SQL queries, syntax tree representations, and chemical structures expressed using SMILES notation, to name just a few possibilities. In an ICFP 2018 paper (https://github.com/cyrus-/ptsms-paper/raw/master/icfp18/omar-icfp18-final.pdf), Cyrus and his co-author Jonathan Aldrich address this problem by introducing typed literal macros (TLMs) into Reason, by way of Relit (https://github.com/cyrus-/relit). TLMs allow the programmer to define new literal notation, of nearly arbitrary design, for expressions and patterns of any type at all. Cyrus Omar got his PhD in programming languages from Carnegie Mellon University in May 2017. He is now a post-doctoral researcher at The University of Chicago, where he leads the Hazel (http://hazel.org/) collaboration. In a past life, Cyrus was a computational neurobiologist. That experience motivated him to switch fields and focus on designing a better front-end programming experience for scientists, engineers, artists and other skilled end-users, rooted in the principles in type theory and interaction design. This meetup will be held jointly with the Chicago ReasonML group (https://www.meetup.com/Chicago-ReasonML/). Thank you to McKinsey, who has generously offered to host this joint meetup. Please note that building security requires full names to provide access to the office floors. If your Meetup profile does not include your full name, please send me a private message or email with your full name and I'll make sure it's included on the attendee list.

  • Hacknight at Hashrocket

    Hashrocket

    Are you interested in learning about Reason, but haven’t had a chance to dabble yet? Are you already an expert but want to meet some fellow enthusiasts? Come to Hashrocket to make friends, learn about Reason, and write some awesome code. This hacknight will be great for all levels of experience with Reason. We will have folks around to help assist newcomers if you are just coming to dip your toes into Reason. There will also be beer, pizza, and La Croix. As always our Code of Conduct can be found here (https://www.meetup.com/Chicago-ReasonML/pages/25253072/Code_of_Conduct/) and inclusion is a top priority for us.
