The following was given at YOW! Lambda Jam 2016 on 28–29 April. Thank you all who attended. 😊
The material for the workshop (which includes the game I presented during the talk) is available on my GitHub profile: https://github.com/damncabbage/ylj16-workshop
- Hardware: a computer capable of running a provided VirtualBox VM, with ~15GB disk space to allow for a VM image, and at least a spare 1GB RAM for running the same.
- An internet connection via a 3G/4G-connected device like a phone or tablet. (This will NOT be provided by YOW! or the venue.)
- If you want to get your feet wet with Haskell, the Yorgey CIS194 lecture introduction gives you a broad overview, which can be followed up with sample chapters from the “Haskell Book”. Additionally, Chris Allen’s “Modeling Data in Haskell for Beginners” talk also covers a slew of useful concepts.
- If you want to get a head start, the “PureScript by Example” book is a handy learning reference, but it’s best tackled after dabbling in the above first.
