The Two Crows: Haskell and Jaskell

This month's meeting will feature Barry Burd demonstrating the functional programming languages, Haskell and Jaskell. Haskell is a very pure, very elegant programming language, and Jaskell is a port of Haskell to the Java JVM. This talk explores the important features of Haskell, emphasizing the differences between functional and non-functional programming. Near the end of the talk, we throw a bone to the Java contingent by exploring Haskell on the JVM.

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Scotch Plains Rescue Squad second floor meeting hall starting promptly at 7:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
