Freedom From State - Nov. 3, 4pm

10 November 2017

Hey RITluggers!

It’s Week 11! And finally, snow is on the ground. We’re continuing along towards the end soon.

This week, RITlug’s session covers the Haskell programming language!

Freedom From State: Intro to Haskell

Join RITlug this Friday, Nov. 11th at 4:00pm in GOL-2650 (large DB lab) to learn more about the Haskell programming language!

Haskell is a purely functional programming language, much different than C or Java. But what is purity, and why does it matter? What does Haskell actually offer for building software? And what in the world is a monad? Learn how Haskell can change the way you think about programming. We’ll cover some syntax, a handful of demos, and discuss how Haskell’s concepts apply to software development!

tl;dr details

  • Day: Friday, Nov. 10th, 2017
  • Time: 4:00pm - 6:00pm
    • Talk begins around 4:30pm
  • Where: GOL-2650 (large DB lab, 2nd floor of GCCIS)
