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… 
Expert to Expert: Brian Beckman and Erik Meijer  Inside the .NET Reactive Framework (Rx)
Avg Rating: 5
(17)Erik Meijer and team (developer Wes Dyer, in particular) have created a profound and beautiful .NET library that will take managed event based programming to new levels. Of course, many of you wish that you could write LINQ expressions over events. Well, now you can thanks to Erik's and Wes Dyer's… 
Brian Beckman: The Zen of Stateless State  The State Monad  Part 1
Avg Rating: 5
(8)Concurrency is a problem that faces all developers as we move to the age of ManyCore processor architectures. Managing state is an important aspect of programming generally and for parallel programming especially. The great Brian Beckman demonstrates three ways of labeling a binary tree with… 
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… 
Brian Beckman: Monads, Monoids, and Mort
Avg Rating: 5
(4)Brian Beckman is a fascinating individual. Excosmologist, exmilitary operating system and simulation developer (have you ever considered processes that move both forward and backward in time? Well, Brian and team at JPL created just that. He explains in this interview...). Brian was one of the… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Ralf Lämmel  The Quick Essence of Functional Programming
Avg Rating: 5
(10)We had to cover monads eventually, and there are many great monad tutorials out there (see, for example, here: http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Tutorials#Using_monads). In fact, there are web resources concerned solely with organizing the many monad tutorials available in the wild, and developing…

C9 Lectures: Dr. Ralf Lämmel  Going Bananas
Avg Rating: 5
(5)Dr. Ralf Lämmel returns for an exploration of folds, aka bananas. This is lecture 5 in his C9 Lecture series covering advanced functional programming topics. Welcome back, Ralf! We're so happy to have you here! Why bananas, Ralf? Banana is functional programming slang for "fold"—an…
