Hi all,

I am happy to help with Hadrian, perhaps giving an overview of the codebase and a quick demo covering typical use-cases. I'll generally be around to help with any build related issues, Hadrian hacking, etc.

Note: I'm attending full days on Friday and Saturday, but on Sunday I may be available only in the morning.



Dear GHC devs,

This year's ZuriHac 2019 [1] will again feature a dedicated GHC track to
foster contributions to GHC and teach newcomers how to participate in GHC's
development. It was a great success last year, and we hope it will be a
great success this year as well.

For that we need your help: We would like to invite you to organize a
session in the GHC track. This could be in form of a presentation, a
workshop, or a hack session with topics centered around GHC.

For some inspiration, these are the subjects from last year's track:
- Continuous Integration / DevOps, by Manual Chakravarty
- PrimOps / PrimTypes, by Michal Terepeta
- Performance Regression Tests, by Niklas Hamb├╝chen
- Newcomers Tutorial, by Andreas Herrmann

Other possible subjects could be around:
- Improving documentation
- Extending GHC's test-suite
- General GHC development workflows
- The inner workings of some aspect of GHC

Aside from preparing a session, we are also looking for volunteers to be
around as GHC mentors during hack sessions to help out newcomers.

Please let us know if you'd be interested in leading a session, or being a
mentor, or helping out with this track in any other way. You can contact
either Niklas or myself, on this list or by private message.

Niklas and Andreas
ZuriHac 2019 GHC track coordinators
