Talk Name Speaker Description
An invitation to Homotopy Type Theory Gershom Bazerman You won't know HoTT or understand it at the end of this talk. But you may understand at least what the domain is, why it is of interest, and even maybe have some notion of what "univalence" could be and why it is reasonable to expect that it should compute.
TypeFamilies in 20 Minutes or Less Brandon Simmons A tutorial introduction to my favorite GHC extension; at the end of the talk you should have a good idea of what TypeFamilies is all about, and a sense of where you might use it in your own code.
Concurrent programming with async and STM John Wiegley An introduction to using STM and async to write safe and effective concurrent code.
The learn-physics project Scott Walck Can you learn physics solely by reading Haddock pages? Probably not, but it could be a fun way to learn for some people. The learn-physics project aims to provide readable code that exposes the structure of physical theory and allows the calculation of quantities of physical interest. So far, it's mainly electromagnetic theory.
Haskell Tales from the Lab Greg Hale A brief account of a biologist's very pleasant experience with STM and Snap, for processing brain data and getting into web development.
Yet Another Idea for Automatic Superclass Instances Richard Eisneberg The Applicative-Monad Proposal is great in theory, but annoying in practice. I have a new idea for how to get (mostly) automatic superclasses that I would love feedback on.
