Potential Presenters

  • Derek Elkins - I can provide a talk for categorical ideas that are directly applicable in Haskell (e.g. free monads, initial algebras, etc.) and/or something on using types to enforce invariants without going too crazy (e.g. wrapper types, phantom types, type class traits, reasonable examples of type level programming)

  • For a Portland meeting, probably in a January/February time-frame
  • Maybe during SIGCSE in Portland March 12-15
