Rebecca Skinner will give a talk on Haskell.
In this presentation we'll dig into why this happens, and what we can do about it. The audience will learn:
- What are the common problems people *really* encounter when learning Haskell?
- Why is it so hard to introduce Haskell to your team?
- How can we apply these lessons to the broader technical landscape?
This talk does not require more than a passing familiarity with Haskell, but individuals who have tried and failed to learn it in the past may find it especially beneficial.
Strategic Staffing Solutions (S3) will be sponsoring food and sodas tonight. We'll try to provide a wide variety of sandwiches. They'll also be raffling off a $50 Amazon gift certificate.
