For our August 25th meeting, we were joined by some students from Utrecht University's Summer School on Functional Programming. Jurriën Stutterheim talked about a project he did with Doaitse Swierstra and Wouter Swierstra. For the Junior College at Utrecht University, they developed a small web application to demonstrate the ideas behind Prolog and used this as a vehicle to teach about Computer Science in general. Next, Wouter Swierstra talked about his paper Data types à la carte, a way of solving the expression problem (with some caveats).
At the July 14th meeting, Jasper Van der Jeugt talked about his Google Summer of Code project on switching the text library to use UTF-8 internally. Stefan Holdermans talked about how to do polymorphic Dynamics in Haskell as a library.
