Join us at the next meeting of pdxfunc, the Portland Functional

* 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
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!
