Functional Programming Study Group #3
30.04.2014 18:00 @ openForce Information Technology GesmbH

This will be the third meeting of our functional programming study group. We are going to discuss chapters 5 "Strictness and Lazyness" and 6 "Purely Functional State". Please note: we are currently using revision 13 of the book. Roman will lead us through chapter 5 and Alex came forward to present chapter 6. What do I have to do in order to join? All you have to do is read the text (and RSVP).  But you will learn/benefit more in my experience if you also try to do some of the exercises.  If you put your solutions  somewhere publicly accessible (e.g. GitHub) or bring them to the meeting, we can discuss and compare different approaches What does presenting a chapter involve? There is no need to prepare slides or anything  like that. But you will need to read the text more closely to be able to summarise the individual sections of your chapter for us and lead and encourage the discussion. It will be your call to  separate the less important aspects from the more important ones, as we usually have only about 45 mins per chapter.
