The sixth Ghent FPG Meeting still needs to be planned. It will most likely be held at the end of January 2011.

3.1 Hackathon Meeting (Nov. 5 2010)

The fifth meeting was held during the Haskell Hackathon. The theme of the meeting was "Functional Programming in Industry". We had three talks by people who use Functional Programming in their respective companies:

  • Duncan Coutts (Well-Typed) - Who talked about Well-Typed and how they make a living writing Haskell code.
  • Romain Slootmaekers (Incubaid) - Who talked about how hard it is to get new ideas incorporated into existing companies.

Our fourth meeting will be held on October 7, 2010, from 19:00 onward. Same location as the previous meetings: Ghent University Technicum, St.-Pietersnieuwstraat 41, Left Entrance. The program is as follows:

  • Stijn Timbermont - Mapping Interpreters onto Runtime Support
  • Tom Schrijvers - Dictionaries: Eager or Lazy Type Class Witnesses?
  • Dominique Devriese - Grammar Combinators - A new model for shallow parser DSL's

Abstracts of the talks can be found in this google groups message.

3.3 June 29 2010 Meeting

Our third meeting will be on June 29, 2010. This is again in the 'Technicum' building of Ghent University, left entrance. The program will be as follows:
