Lightning Talks

determined at the event



  1. TreeViz - a computation breakdown visualization project hosted by David Banas
  2. Haskell Platform, the new build - We are working on a new build system for all of Haskell Platform: Generating tarballs, installers, and even the web site from one single Shake based build tool. Lots to do! See Mark Lentczner.
  3. lambda-ccc --- a project for compiling Haskell to hardware. I'm doing this work for my day job, but the development is open, and the result will be shared freely. The project starts with a GHC plugin that turns transforms Core to generate a convenient-to-manipulate GADT representation of the original. Then convert to an Arrow-like algebraic interface that can be interpreted in various ways, including as circuits. See Conal Elliott.

We'll be hanging out on #bayhac on FreeNode.
