• What we'll do
Join us as Ben Sima presents an introductory talk on the Yesod web framework.

Haskell can be a complex, powerful, highly abstract language. Usually these are not features you want in web development, however. That's why popular frameworks in languages such as Ruby or Python emphasize, "simple", "easy" and "it just works". Ben's talk will share with us a Haskell secret: coding for the web in Haskell can be clear, simple, and enjoyable to write, potentially even more so than in Ruby/Python. This talk will introduce the Yesod web framework and illustrate how Yesod's simple abstractions corral Haskell's complexity into an enjoyable and safe value-level language for web programming.

Ben's talk will be scheduled with questions and general Haskell conversation to follow.
