Bucharest FP #40 — Recursion Schemes in Haskell

Join Bucharest FP to talk about recursion schemes and Haskell. RSVP here to save your front row spot on February 18, starting 18:30!

 

About the event

Let’s explore “Functional Programming with Bananas, Lenses, Envelopes and Barbed Wire” (or how basic knowledge of abstract algebra can help you develop patterns for recursion) together. The talk will assume knowledge of Haskell syntax, type definitions, some familiarity with type eliminators (e.g. maybe, either, folds).

Traian Florin Șerbănuță is an associate professor of computer science at the University of Bucharest. Traian completed his Ph.D. at UIUC, working with Grigore Rosu on the first prototype of K, which serves as a basis for the semantics-based execution and semantics-based program verification tools developed by RV, Inc. Additionally, Traian designed a maximal causal model for sequential consistency which serves as a basis for runtime verification of concurrent programs in tools such as RV-Predict. Traian currently works at RV as the K and Haskell Backend Development Lead.

Startup Funeral

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to pay our respects to three startups.

TechHub want to look at the “fail fast – learn quick” culture that is everywhere in the startup world and thought that moving eulogies from the CEOs of failed startups would be an excellent way to start. Everyone can talk about success, but it takes something special to talk about failure.

Startups will often have a booming launch party, spend forever finding a cofounder and if they’re lucky, get acquired by larger companies… but this not the only exit strategy. They sometimes (ok, to tell the truth – statistically quite often) fail. Teams split up, customers don’t show up, investors pull back. TechHub is really keen to engage with the culture of failing fast and learning from mistakes.

If you’d like to come and mourn some startups, hear their stories and learn from their mistakes then keep an eye on this page for more details about how and when to register

***To apply to speak about your startup, fill out this form***

Meet our speakers:

Lauren Hine previously founded Zealify, a platform to help showcase high growth startups and their company culture. It was a bumpy 3 year journey full of learning experiences that eventually lead to the unfortunate demise of the company but not before acquiring investment and some top class clients. Lauren currently works for Techstars as Director of Operations for their Community Programs.

Wil Benton will share his warts-and-all experiences about working on Chew, a London-based livestreaming platform. After a security breach wracked up a (high five figure) bill with a supplier halfway through a funding round, the company imploded and was eventually sold to an international competitor. Chew was a livestreaming platform that connected music performers from around the world with a global audience of fans.
