C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals Chapter 6 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(16)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…

(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… 
Brian Beckman: Hidden Markov Models, Viterbi Algorithm, LINQ, Rx and Higgs Boson
Avg Rating: 5
(14)It's been WAY too long since we've had Brian Beckman sharing knowledge, insights and perspectives on Channel 9. This changes now! Needless to say, I was incredibly happy to spend an hour with Brian learning all about what he's up to these days. Not surprisingly, he's writing code and employing Rx… 
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…

(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…

(13)In Chapter 12, Lazy Evaluation, Dr. Meijer takes us on a journey into the world of order of evaluation (when expressions are evaluated). In the case of lazy evaluation, computation is delayed until the result of the computation is known to be required. Most programming languages that most of you use… 
C9 Lectures: Greg Meredith  Monadic Design Patterns for the Web  Introduction to Monads
Avg Rating: 5
(13)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 is here is the monad. Greg has a very…

(12)In Chapter 10, Declaring Types and Classes, Dr. Meijer teaches us about type declarations, data declarations, arithmetic expressions, etc. In Haskell, a new name for an existing type can be defined using atype declaration:type String = [Char]String is a synonym for the type [Char].Like function…

(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…

(12)In Chapter 8, Functional Parsers, it's all about parsing and parsers. A parser is a program that analyses a piece of text to determine its syntactic structure. In a functional language such as Haskell, parsers can naturallybe viewed as functions. type Parser = String > TreeA parser is a…
