Lambda Luminaries – Datatype Generic Programming in Haskell
Thursday, June 21, 2012
4 Burger Ave, Lyttelton Manor
We are very happy to announce our first international speaker at Lambda Luminaries!
Sean is going to broaden our programming horizons with an introduction to datatype-generic programming in Haskell.
He promised some brain-frying (because that is why we’re into Haskell, right?), but not too much.
Have a look at the course page where Sean has taught this for more information:
Hope to see you all there!
