 Join us at the next meeting of pdxfunc, the Portland Functional
 Programming Study Group. We'll have presentations, demos and
 discussions. We welcome programmers interested in all functional
 languages and our meetings have content for coders of all skill levels.
 If interested, please also subscribe to our mailing list at


 * Dr. Bart Massey: Audio Processing With Haskell
 - Abstract: Dr. Massey will discuss and demonstrate a Haskell
 implementation of a WAVE file I/O library and compressor-limiter
 application that he's been working on. He'll also talk about why he
 chose Haskell to do this.
 - Speaker: Dr. Bart Massey teaches Computer Science at Portland State
 University, focusing on open source software engineering and artificial
 intelligence. He's the current Secretary of the X.org Board of
 Directors, co-author of the Nickle open source programming language, and
 spent many years as the faculty advisor the Portland State Aerospace
 Society that builds open source sounding rockets.


 We'll spend the rest of the meeting doing open discussion, talking about
 projects, technical challenges, recent developments, etc. It's a good
 group with a lot of varied experience, so there won't be any shortage of
 interesting discussion.


 Don Stewart, who gave the group's first presentation, recently announced
 that the Haskell-based xmonad tiling window manager he helps write is
 now one year old
 (http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/xmonad/2008-March/005021.html) and the
 "Real World Haskell" book that he, Bryan O'Sullivan and John Goerzen are
 writing has released some new draft chapters for previewing
 (http://book.realworldhaskell.org/). Congratulations, Don!

 Anyway, see you at the meeting!
