C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals, Chapter 2 of 13
Avg Rating: 4.75
(37)In Chapter 2, Dr. Meijer introduces Haskell syntax and notation (via a Haskell implementation called Hugs, to be precise, which is based on Haskell 98) and we learn about the Haskell syntax that represents the fundamental construct of functional programming:functions. It's not like you're used to in… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals, Chapter 1 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(61)Welcome to a new technical series on Channel 9 folded into a different kind of 9 format: C9 Lectures. These are what you think they are, lectures. They are not conversational in nature (like most of what you're used to on 9), but rather these pieces are entirely focused on education, coming to you… 
Checking In: Eric Lippert  On Compiler Evolution, Designing C# and Blogging
Avg Rating: 4.75
(37)Happy Birthday, Channel 9!!! We are 7 years old today! Hard to believe... What a great 7 years it has been. THANK YOU, NINERS! In celebration, we bring you the latest episode of Checking In with Erik Meijer. Our very special guest is Eric Lippert. To Erik, thank you for some many years of great…

(15)In Chapter 7, Dr. Meijer teaches us about HigherOrder Functions. A function is called higherorder if it takes a function as an argument and returns a function as a result:twice :: (a > a) > a > atwice f x = f (f x)The function twice above is higher order because it takes a function… 
E2E: Erik Meijer and Don Box  Perspectives on SOAP, Programming Data and M
Avg Rating: 5
(8)Don Box is a Distinguished Engineer at Microsoft and has a rich history in the general purpose programming world. You remember SOAP, right? Don was one of the Gang of Four who designed SOAP. Don was also instrumental in the design and implementation of WCF. Don is currently building a new… 
E2E: Erik Meijer and Burton Smith  Concurrency, Parallelism and Programming
Avg Rating: 4
(15)The great Burton Smith, Microsoft Technical Fellow and an international leader in highperformance computer architecture and programming languages for parallel computing joins functional programming purist and language design guru Erik Meijer to discuss several major themes of parallel computing… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals Chapter 6 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(15)In Chapter 6, Dr. Meijer guides us through the world of recursive functions. In Haskell, functions can be defined in terms of themselves. Such functions are called recursive. For example: factorial 0 = 1factorial (n+1) = (n+1) * factorial nfactorial maps 0 to 1, and any other positive…

(21)In Chapter 5, Dr. Meijer introduces and digs into List Comprehensions. In mathematics, comprehension notation is used to construct new sets from old sets. In Haskell, you can create new lists from old lists using a similarcomprehension syntax:[x^2  x < [1..5]]The above notation represents the…

(19)In Chapter 4, Dr. Meijer teaches us about the art and practice of defining functions. Functions can be defined using conditional expressions and in Haskell conditional expressions must always have an else clause. Functions can also be defined using guarded equations and pattern matching. You will… 
E2E: Brian Beckman and Erik Meijer  Co/Contravariance in Physics and Programming, 2 of 3
Avg Rating: 4
(11)Happy new year! It's hard to believe that it's 2010. To start off the new year, how about some Beckman and Meijer? You recently learned about Dr. Beckman's perspective on covariance and contravariance in physics. Dr. Meijer found this topic to be incredibly interesting and the two geniuses decided…
