Call for participation: Utrecht Summer School

Wouter Swierstra-2

                         Call for Participation


              Utrecht, the Netherlands, 21-25 August 2017


The Applied Functional Programming summer school has been running for
almost ten years. We aim to educate aspiring Haskell programmers
beyond the basic material covered by many textbooks.

The lectures will cover several more advanced topics regarding the
theory and practice of Haskell programming, including topics such as:

   * lambda calculus;
   * monads and monad transformers;
   * lazy evaluation;
   * generalized algebraic data types;
   * type families and type-level programming;
   * concurrency and parallelism.

The summer school consists of a mix of lectures, labs, and a busy
social program.


Utrecht staff:
* Johan Jeuring
* Doaitse Swierstra
* Wouter Swierstra

Guest lectures:
* Simon Marlow (Concurrency and parallelism)
* Luite Stegeman (GHCJS)


We expect students to have a basic familiarity with Haskell
already. You should be able to write recursive functions over
algebraic data types, such as lists and trees. There is a great deal
of material readily available that covers this material. If you’ve
already started learning Haskell and are looking to take your
functional programming skills to the next level, this is the course
for you.
