what FP communities are you aware of in wellington? i would love to
get as many of them involved here as possible. to my knowledge there
are not too many, hence this user group.

I meant the various language communities. For example, I am on some of
the Haskell mailing lists. There may be other people in NZ who have
subscribed to the Haskell lists which are not aware of this
list/group.

People tend to get involved in a language community first, so it makes
sense (to me) to advertise in the language-specific communities.

We have not set anything up for today. I think we should perhaps aim for the March 3rd if the room is available.

If there is interest I would be happy to give a presentation on the web framework Yesod (http://docs.yesodweb.com/). I have spent some of my spare time trying it out and I am very impressed so far. It has DSLs for HTML, CSS and JavaScript that allow for very powerful templates. I especially like the latest Hamlet syntax. It is now very similar to HTML, but with whitespace sensitivity instead of end tags. Because it uses the Blaze HTML builder it also seems to play really nicely with Blaze (an EDSL for HTML).

God knows why I am doing this...

But here goes. To go with Hamish's yesodweb tak, I am volunteering to
give a talk about Snap, yet another web framework:
http://snapframework.com/

I guess that 3 March is not going to happen. How about the 10th of
March ?

We have been really busy and we did not get organised in time for the 10th, so we are now aiming for Thursday 17th.

I could not get ahold of anyone at catalyst yet so have no
confirmation if the 17th is working or not. anyone on the list able to
check the internal catalyst calendar?

thanks

cheers
