Talks

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.
