Simon Meier: An introduction to GHC's runtime system (the STG machine)

I'll give an overview of the GHC's runtime system. More precisely, I'll talk about the

- the memory layout of values at runtime,

- the implementation of function calls, and

- the implementation of case distinctions.

Note that I moved the meet up to the second last thursday in Marc because the last one is right before easter and some people might not make it then.

    Did enjoy the talk very much: it seems I really was missing a lot about how the compiler works internally. I guess I'll have to sift through that 80 pages of papers in the end... :)

    Thanks Simon! The talk was great: really accessible, fun and filled with useful pointers.

    Ow bummer. I really planed to be there on 29. since this talk is beginner's friendly. But on 21. I will not be in Zurich. Any chance to record a video of the talk? Or maybe move the meetup to the week after easter?

      Yeah, I saw the slides. And since they look so promising, I'll try hard to still make it :-)

      Nice. Happy to hear that slides will be available and also that they are self-contained! G+ hangout is not an option for me since I'll fly at that time...
