Stay tuned.

Fantastic!

Lectures on lambda calculus. I can't find any. Category theory as well, as it relates to programming.

Some videos do not have the option.
brianbec said:CreamFilling512 said:*snip*Now, for a little secret: type the same thing into Wolfram Alpha, just replacing "3" with "n" (and, for even more secrets, leave off the first "n + " -- just type in the big infinite product
The second problem is n + the gamma function, Γ(n+1), with n = 3.
Here's a graph of the absolute value of the Gamma function on the complex plane, from Wikipedia:

Still not sure what the first equation meant...
This is my naive solution to the second problem, it approaches 9 as k approaches infinity.
static void Main(string[] args) { Func<double, double> f = (k) => (Math.Pow((1 + (1 / k)), 3)) / (1 + (3 / k)); double z = f(1); for (double k = 2; k < double.MaxValue; k++) { z *= f(k); Console.WriteLine(3 + z); } }

Here's one such tool "reactive framework extensions generator": http://clarius.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Reactive
Santa's Envoy said:TommyCarlier said:*snip*Nope. That is the current solution we have today. What I'd like to know is why don't we have something similar to the code I posted - a clean generic function callable in any EventHandler type to get an Observable.
Heck, I could dig a whole lot deeper on features missing for Observables, but I'm particularly interested in this specific one.
There is another overload that doesn't take a string - it's all strongly typed. However, what you really want is first class events, which neither C# nor VB.NET support. F# does, however, have first class events. You cannot create an extension method for an event, because events are not objects or structs, they do not have methods to invoke in the same way as first class objects.
There are however, code generators that will do all that for you, already.
What happens to Silverlight when HTML5 reaches critical mass? What has been taken from Silverlight/WPF and has been brought into (or will be brought into) HTML5, by Microsoft?
I have a question about monads ... if they are really the "fundamental unit of composibility" as put forward in a few of the Channel9 interviews with Brian Beckman and Eric Meijer, then isn't it practical to assume that the goal should then be to ensure that everything is in a monad? Does that actually make sense, and is it even possible?
