So, our next meeting will occur as usual in Engine Yard, 7pm, Wednesday, Jan.25; so far there are no solutions for Mountain View or Palo Alto.
Lets talk about "Applicative Programming with Effects".
Here's the link. http://www.soi.city.ac.uk/~ross/papers/Applicative.html
It's about applicative functors, why they are more practical than monads etc.
I personally can show how come a strong monad is an applicative functor (that's because one can use LiftM2).
But there's a lot of interesting material in this article.
And if anybody has a thread to discuss or a talk to give, it would be great.
