Please volunteer for something!

1 Hosting a meeting

  • Bluespec is willing to host a meeting at our offices in Waltham center (accessible via the 70/70A and a few other buses as well as commuter rail)
  • Sun could likely host a meeting in our conference center, but public transit accessibility isn't as good (there's the 351 bus, but it only runs during prevailing reverse-commute hours in one direction).

2 Presenting at a meeting

  • Ravi Nanavati is willing to present on the monadic trickery I used to implement primBuildModule in Bluespec
  • Jan-Willem Maessen is willing to present a talk on splittable supplies (basic) and/or on eager evaluation of Haskell programs (advance). I could probably also gin something up on basic Haskell compiler optimizations (high-level stuff, like how specialization works and so forth).

3 Finding people to present at a meeting

  • Ravi Nanavati is willing to poke his Bluespec colleagues to present interesting things they know about (e.g. our Haskell / Tcl interface built on the FFI, our numeric type system, etc.)
  • Try poking Arvind and his students, Joe Stoy, or Nikhil.
