Event description
Learn about RIO, a standard library for developing applications in Haskell. Suitable for beginners and experienced Haskell programmers alike

About this Event

Dan Firth is an independent Haskell consultant and mathematician with experience in industry sectors such as automotive, finance, and web development. Dan has been writing and teaching Haskell for 7 years, and over that time has designed training programs aimed at bringing new developers unfamiliar with Haskell up to speed and writing applications in the language with confidence and fluency.

This talk will introduce RIO, a new standard library aimed at simplifying the development experience in Haskell particularly with regards to applications development. Amongst others, RIO is one tool that provides language beginners and experts alike with conveniences that alleviate many of the sticking points that developers and engineers often find themselves in when trying to learn and use the language.

We'll discuss the basic motivation for RIO, how to get started and navigate the library, and walk through the basic anatomy of a RIO application. We'll see how RIO can assist beginners in getting a better understanding of the Haskell ecosystem at large, and how it can assist seasoned Haskell developers in simplifying their existing codebases.

Our sponsors this month are Codurance (https://codurance.com), who build well-crafted software and help development teams to get better at continuously delivering software through the application of Extreme Programming practices and Software Craftsmanship values.

Food and refreshments will be available! Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.
