ZuriHac 2019 - GHC Track

I'm also happy to lead a session on GHC. I could perhaps give a high-level overview (no slides, just whiteboard & projected code) on the GHC compilation pipeline. I don't expect it would be terribly hands-on, though I would hope to get lots of questions from the audience. This might most easily come before Simon's presentation, which would doubtless be more detailed.

I'm happy to assist others in their hacking efforts, too.

I'll be around Fri - Sun.
