Haskell meetup

A session at mloc.js JavaScript Conference 2013

Thursday 14th February, 2013

7:00pm to 9:00pm (CET)

Location: Prezi office, 1075 Budapest, Károly körút 9.

David Terei (GHC LLVM backend and Safe Haskellen) will talk about his memcache client implementation in Haskell: The memcache protocol is widely implemented and fairly simple. However, encoding this in Haskell vs. an imperative language demonstrates some of the nice features of the Haskell language such abstract-data-types (ADT), great parsing and serialization libraries, and the light-weight threading model. All of which allow the protocol to be represented concisely, correctly and with great performance.

Hamish Mackenzie (GHCJS and Leksah) will give us a sneak peek about the latest unrelease Leksah features:
I'll give a quick tour of Leksah and show off some of the new features that are coming in the next official release (0.14). Including:

  • Better support for building Haddock documents (including our first use of WebKitGTK+ in Leksah)
  • New GHCi integration features (better support for running your unit tests and haddock code blocks in GHCi)
  • Version control integration
