C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals Chapter 8 of 13
Avg Rating: 4
(11)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…

(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…

(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… 
E2E: Erik Meijer and Don Box  Perspectives on SOAP, Programming Data and M
Avg Rating: 5
(9)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…

(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… 
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… 
Expert to Expert: Rich Hickey and Brian Beckman  Inside Clojure
Avg Rating: 4.25
(17)Clojure is a dynamic programming language created by Rich Hickey that targets both the Java Virtual Machine and the CLR. It is designed to be a generalpurpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Erik Meijer  Functional Programming Fundamentals, Chapter 1 of 13
Avg Rating: 5
(68)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… 
Andrew Kennedy: F# Units of Measure
Avg Rating: 5
(3)Floating point values in F# can have associated units of measure, which are typically used to indicate length, volume, mass, and so on. The builtin type float takes an optional unitofmeasure parameter, written in angle brackets, in a similar way that types such as IEnumerable take a type… 
C# 4.0 Dynamic with Chris Burrows and Sam Ng
Avg Rating: 5
(3)In this video Microsoft developers Sam Ng and Chris Burrows discuss the new Dynamic feature that is part of the next version of C#. This feature provides enhanced interoperation with dynamic languages such as Ruby and Python, with dynamic models such as Silverlight JavaScript, and with COM…
