Meetup at Hacker Dojo (7PM New Time!)

By popular demand we are meeting at 7PM. This meetup features two very interesting projects from two members of our group.

Mark Lentczner will be talking about his very comfy project called plush. Plush is the shell for the modern computer. Input is still the same command line language your finger tips know how to type. Output is a web page where all the context, history, reference material, status updates, and other data is organized so you can get your work done, and easily get you what you need when you need it. Mark works at Google and is known for his support for the Haskell community and as organizer of BayHac.

Next up, Nathan Howell, co-Founder of Alpha Heavy Industries, will be talking about his package protobuf. Protocol Buffers are a way of encoding structured data in an efficient yet extensible format. Google uses Protocol Buffers for almost all of its internal RPC protocols and file formats. This library supports a useful subset of Google Protocol Buffers message specifications in a Haskell. No preprocessor or additional build steps are required for message encoding and decoding. The package is a good example of how to use GHC.Generics. What are Generics? Nathan will explain.

 

Admin note: We will not be meeting in May in deference to Bayhac '13 and we are looking for speakers for June. Let me know if you would like to give a short talk (45 min) about anything Haskellish.

    New time was excellent. I got to see both presentations, in full. So I'm better informed. While I'm scratching my head on the presentations, exploring genericity seems like a good idea.

    Is anyone driving up from / passing through the FIDI? Anyone want to split a Zipcar ride?
