CodeWorld: Creative Mathematics and Coding for Kids
• What we'll do 7:00 pm to 7:50 pm - CodeWorld: Creative Mathematics and Coding for Kids by CodeWorld creator, Chris Smith Bring your laptops. In this hour, we'll build everything from simple pictures to multi-player games using CodeWorld, a web-based programming environment for teaching creative mathematics and coding to middle school students using a variant of Haskell. Be as ambitious as you like! This session is appropriate for everyone from beginning programmers to seasoned Haskell experts. 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm - CodeWorld: Under the Hood In this talk, we'll look at how CodeWorld has adapted the Haskell programming language and tools to an educational setting. Using a combination of cross-compiling, pre-processing and post-processing, language extensions, creative use of stack traces, strictness tricks, a custom prelude, and even some deep runtime system black magic, we have transformed Haskell into a fun and easy language for children. Let's explore under the hood! • What to bring Laptop to follow along and exercise your creativity using CodeWorld • Important to know

    What we're about

    Public Group

    The NY Haskell Users Group is for all programmers either interested in or experienced with the Haskell programming language. We want to build a community of Haskell developers in the New York area that can share knowledge, projects, and experience, and to generally foster and encourage strongly typed functional programming, in all languages, all settings, and all industries. Our events center around talks, but we have also hosted social hours, code workshops, and a hackathon. Regular meetings are on the fourth wednesday of each month.

    We post videos of all talks on our YouTube channel (
