If you want to code along, you should set up the development
environment and get the hello-world app running prior to your
participation in the tutorial. I will have instructions on that up by
Feb’17 in the following github
Presentation language will be English, but I am happy to discuss your questions in German. This is joint work with Matthias Fischmann.
During the studies for his master’s degree in computer science and general linguistics at Göttingen University (Germany), Michael came in contact with lambda calculus and the Haskell programming language. He kept on using it professionally and privately ever since graduation.
His fascination with functional programming (and type systems) lies not only in how directly the theoretical, academic discourse about it can be applied to every-day code, but also in how reliably it improves software quality in several regards. For two years now he has been working on building production-grade software for the web in Haskell and PureScript at Symbolian GmbH.
