C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals, Chapter 1 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(54)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,… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals, Chapter 2 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(30)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… 
Brian Beckman: Don't fear the Monad
Avg Rating: 5
(11)Functional programming is increasing in popularity these days given the inherent problems with shared mutable state that is rife in the imperative world. As we march on to a world of multi and manycore chipsets, software engineering must evolve to better equip software engineers with the tools to… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals, Chapter 3 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(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… 
C9 Lectures: Greg Meredith  Monadic Design Patterns for the Web 4 of 4
Avg Rating: 5
(4)Greg Meredith, a mathematician and computer scientist, has graciously agreed to do a C9 lecture series covering monadic design principles applied to web development. You've met Greg before in a Whiteboard jam session with Brian Beckman. The fundamental concept here is the monad, and Greg has a novel…

(13)Well, my friends, the day has arrived. For thirteen weeks, you have been provided all the conceptual tools to take the leap into the deep end of the functional programming pool and float safely. The great Dr. Erik Meijer has generously given his value time to teach us the fundamentals as delivered… 
Being Fluent, Fluid and Functional with Monads.net
Avg Rating: 5
(1)Today's project, monads.net by Sergey Zwezdin, is brought to us by a post from Ryan Skurkis. Do you really like writing If after If after If? && after && after  after ? Do you really like writing that same event method? Do you really like writing all that usual exception handling… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Graham Hutton  Functional Programming Fundamentals Chapter 11 of 13
Avg Rating: 4
(11)Yes. You read the title correctly! For today's lecture in the Functional Programming Fundamentals series of lectures the great Dr. Graham Hutton, author of the Programming in Haskell book that Dr. Erik Meijer has based this lecture series on, is guest lecturing Chapter… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals Chapter 7 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(14)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… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals Chapter 9 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(11)In Chapter 9, Interactive Programs, Dr. Meijer will teach us how to make programs in Haskell that are sideeffecting:interactive. Haskell programs are pure mathematical functions with no side effects. That said, you want to be able to write Haskell programs that can read input from the keyboard and…
