Introduction to Cloud Haskell. An approach to distributed programming in Haskell

Alen Ribic will give us an introduction to Cloud Haskell.

Cloud Haskell is a domain-specific language for developing programs for a distributed computing environment. Implemented as a shallow embedding in Haskell, it provides a message passing communication model, inspired by Erlang, without introducing incompatibility with Haskell’s established shared-memory concurrency.

Alan Ribic is a programmer, currently working for Oracle.
His current area of interest is in understanding complexity of large software systems. Focus is on difficulty of testing and informal reasoning rather than computational complexity.

    Alen asked if we could move this session to January 14th seeing that
    most people are away now.
    So we will be taking a break this month, but hope to see you all for a
    very exciting talk in January :-)
