Hi Haskell friends,

So obviously we won't be holding any in-person meetups anytime soon, but that doesn't mean we can't hang out together! Therefore we decided to hold a remote video meetup this month.

We will have a small presentation/tutorial followed by an interactive workshop. The goal will be to write a server that serves a website and takes orders. Our inspiration for this will be https://cravecookie.com/ , and we will start off with simple dumb code that gets the job done. The plan is:

- Serve stuff with Spock
- make an ugly front page
- take orders and post them into a slack channel
- save those same orders in a database

So if you've ever wondered how to go from simple coding exercises to writing a useful application in Haskell, then this workshop is for you.

Now, this will clearly be an experiment, and I'm sure we will learn some interesting things about holding meetups remotely. The way we will do it is a video meeting with Zoom, and a Slack channel to answer each other's questions in a more decentralized way.

Basically you need to do two things:

1. Join our ZuriHac Slack with this link: https://join.slack.com/t/zurihac/shared_invite/zt-ctzx6hfb-Q6cXOV1cZT1LRwGFWgz0gA , then join the #meetup-2020-03 channel.
2. Join the Zoom meeting here: https://zoom.us/j/748486478 .

You don't need to create a Zoom account or download an app as far as I know, but please let me know if you have any questions.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
Juri & Cazim
