Hi all!

This month, we have a very generous sponsorship from Equal Experts (a network of talented, experienced software consultants)

who will be providing refreshments (pizza and drinks, both alcoholic and non).

When: Monday 18th June. 7pm for 7:05

Where: MadLab at Plant NOMA

What:  Conor Farrell (@SectoidCmdr) will give us an Introduction to Idris.

"Idris is a purely functional language that has a number of interesting features like dependent types and totality checking. It can also be used as a proof assistant, similar to Coq and Agda.

In this talk I’ll cover development using Idris and how you can use types to help you write your code - rather than thinking of types just as things that need to be checked, we can instead see them as a plan for producing a robust program by following the three steps of type, define and refine.

You don’t need any experience with Idris or functional programming as I’ll be starting from the basics, but if you do happen to know Haskell you’ll probably see some similarities!"

All the best,

Hakim C
