Freiburg in October: Scheme, Dylan, and probability monads

Posted by Eric Kidd Tue, 18 Sep 2007 12:36:00 GMT

Good morning! I’ll be in Freiburg for several events this October, including CUFP and the Haskell Hackathon.

Commercial Users of Functional Programming (CUFP)

On October 4th, I’ll be speaking at CUFP ’07, describing the use of Scheme in a real-world multimedia engine. Some likely topics:

  1. How we switched to Scheme (and why refactoring is your friend).
  2. How our artists learned to program in Scheme (it’s all about the tools).
  3. The tension between functional programming and objects: Can we have both?

Dylan Beer Night

Once upon a time, I dreamt of generic functions and built RPMs for Gwydion Dylan.

Some current and former Dylan hackers are hoping to meet in Freiburg, most likely on October 4th. If you’re at ICFP or one of the workshops, we’d love to hear from you.

Haskell Hackathon

I’ll be at the Haskell Hackathon from Friday to Sunday.

Perhaps it’s time to whip Control.Monad.Probability into shape?
