I'm pleased to announce the July meeting of the Boston Area Haskell
Based on the feedback from the June meeting and the constraints of our
speakers, the July meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, July 16th
from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. Like the June meeting, it will be held in the
MIT CSAIL Reading Room (32-G882, i.e. a room on the 8th floor of the
Gates Tower of the MIT's Stata Center at 32 Vassar St in Cambridge,
We have the following two talks scheduled:
"An Introduction to GHC Hacking" by Alec Heller
"Haskell on the iPhone" by Ryan Trinkle (a more in-depth discussion
than his on-the-spot Lightning Talk last month).
As always, there will be a break between the talks for discussion and
mingling. We have openings for Lightning Talks (5-minute talk,
2-minute Q&A) during that period. We are also open to short, relevant
advertisements (like my Hac Phi plug last month). If you're interested
in giving a Lightning Talk, have an advertisement you'd like to share
or are interested in speaking at a future meeting, please contact me
at ravi_n at alum.mit.edu.
I'd also appreciate it if people who can (and can't) attend this
meeting fill out the attendance poll here:
I didn't want to delay this announcement while I tried to come up with
something more convenient.
Responding to this poll will help with two things:
1. Getting an idea of what fraction of the Boston-area Haskell
community can and can't attend this meeting (to help with future
2. Giving me an estimated count of attendees, should I manage to
secure a sponsor for refreshments. Sponsorship of or other assistance
with refreshments is still being eagerly solicited.
If you have any questions about the meeting please send them to the
BostonHaskell mailing list: bostonhaskell at googlegroups.com or contact
I look forward to seeing many Boston-area Haskellers at the July meeting!
