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…

(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… 
Tao Liu: F# Design Patterns
Avg Rating: 4.75
(39)Tao Liu, an engineer on the F# team, explains (and demonstrates) the importance and value of design patterns for F#. Many programmers who work on large or complex software systems are accustomed to employing design patterns in the development of these systems. For experienced C# developers wanting… 
Erik Meijer and Matthew Podwysocki  Perspectives on Functional Programming
Avg Rating: 5
(7)Matthew Podwysocki is a senior consultant for Microsoft platform technologies in the D.C. area. He's been programming since he was a child and has a particular interest and passion for functional programming. Functional programming is all the rage these days. General purpose imperative…

(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 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…

(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…

(18)In Chapter 3, Dr. Meijer explores types and classes in Haskell. A type is a collection of related values and in Haskell every wellformed expression has a type. Using type inference, these types are automatically calculated at run time. Ifexpression e returns a type t, then e is of type t, e :: t. A…
