[Haskell-cafe] [GeekUp] Functional Programming Night at GeekUp Liverpool May

Our night of FP-related talks in Liverpool (UK) is next week, on Tuesday 31st!

I'll be giving a brief (and fairly high level) overview of solving a
real world problem in Haskell, namely how to model and take quizzes
with randomly chosen questions and sections.

There'll also be a talk on a Clojure (a modern Lisp), and another on
implementation (again, of Lisp).

Would be great to meet up with some haskell-cafe people there, if
anyone can make it!
