4 Burger Ave, Lyttelton Manor

We are very happy to announce our first international speaker at Lambda Luminaries!

Sean Leather from the Dutch Haskell User Group and Utrecht University will be talking to us.

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!
