Upcoming events

Functional Programming Study Group #11
09.10.2014 18:00 @ openForce Information Technology GesmbH

Join us to discuss the book Functional Programming in Scala. This time we will will start off the discussion of part three of the book with chapter 13 "External effects and I/O". We will  set up a Google hangout again for those of you who cannot join us in person. The link will be posted in the comments at the beginning of the meeting. 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 90 mins in total for the discussion.
