Tomorrow I’ll be going to the third edition of BarcampGhent. It’s the first barcamp I’m going to, and I’m rather looking forward to it. After reading through the list of presentations a few times, I picked a few items I’d certainly like to see.

Presentations I want to see

What I will be presenting

I’m going to do a presentation called “learn you a haskell in 20 minutes”. It will be a basic introduction to the functional programming language Haskell. It won’t be a classic basic introduction, I’m going to explain some none-trivial things. That’s because all so called “simple introductions” I’ve seen were pretty boring. So I’m going to try something different: I’ll introduce some more advanced concepts instead using a simple application I wrote.

In other words, my goal is not to teach you some basic Haskell concepts in 20 minutes, but rather to spark your interest in functional programming languages. Let’s hope this works!

Your most humble and obedient servant, Jasper Van der Jeugt
