CUFP Videos and Summary Available

Posted on 2009-09-24 15:35 JST by Curt Sampson :: comments enabled

I mentioned last week that the CUFP 2009 slides are available. Don Stewart has now also posted his notes on CUFP as well, which go beyond the slides for detail for some of the talks.

If you have the time to watch them, the CUFP 2009 videos have also now been posted.

ICFP 2009 Videos!

Posted on 2009-09-22 02:48 JST by Curt Sampson :: comments enabled

Darn, well, there you go. It turns out Malcom has been a very busy boy and not only put up the HIWS, but also has all of the ICFP 2009 up as well. Including mine. (I won’t dwell on how I look fat.)

I personally recommend Conal Eliot’s Beautiful Differentiation talk. It was truly beautiful, and had I had someone like this to teach me first year calculus, I probably would have a degree today.

ICFP 2009 Haskell Implementors' Workshop Videos Available

Ah, yes, I was informed about this last week, but took my time posting about it, anyway, the presentation videos from the 2009 Haskell Implementors’ Workshop are now available.

CUFP Slides Available

Posted on 2009-09-19 08:35 JST by Curt Sampson :: comments enabled

If you have a look at the program page for Commercial Users of Functional Programming 2009 you’ll find now that, as well as the abstracts, the slides for the talks have been made available. The videos for both these and other ICFP presentations are probably about a month away, according to Jim Grundy of the ACM.

ICFP Slides and Papers Available

Posted on 2009-09-10 10:35 JST by Curt Sampson :: comments enabled

Since I’ve had a couple of requests, I’ve just posted the slides for both my ICFP 2009 presentation, Haskell in the Real World, and my Haskell Implementor’s Workshop presentation, My Dream GHC Environment.

Both presentations were videotaped, and the ICFP one, at least, is supposed to be available soon (perhaps on Google videos). The videos will no doubt be a lot more informative than my slides,

Fame and Fortune

Posted on 2009-09-10 00:45 JST by Curt Sampson :: comments enabled

Wow. Someone I don’t even know discovered my paper and put up a blog post about it. That would be the Summary: Haskell in the Real World post from Ujihisa-san’s Standards blog.

How he found it I’m not sure, since ICFP Proceedings are not exactly as popular as Slashdot, and nor is my rather dry, academic writing style in this paper as anywhere near as exciting as Yaron Minsky’s Caml Trading presentation. So I’m especially enjoying the love.

I always knew Haskell would bring me fame and (soon, I hope) fortune.

Return from ICFP 2009

Posted on 2009-09-09 07:44 JST by Curt Sampson :: comments enabled

I’ve just returned from ICFP 2009, the The 14th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming in Edinburgh.

The conference went well, and was even more interesting than last year, perhaps because I comprehended a lot more of it. Last year seemed to be the year of dependent types, about which I had little clue at the time; this year I seemed to be hearing all the time about applicative functors. (Not that people were giving papers directly about applicative functors, but there seemed to be quite a number that chugged along in their own direction for a while and suddenly mentioned that what they were working on just happened to be an applicative functor as well.)
