Niki Vazou

Niki dreams of bringing formal verification into everyday programming and she pursues her dream under a post-doc position at University of Maryland.

Keynote: Thrilled to Welcome Back Simon Peyton Jones to #HaskellX 2018!

Simon Peyton Jones

Simon Peyton Jones, MA, MBCS, CEng, graduated from Trinity College Cambridge in 1980. Simon was a key contributor to the design of the now-standard functional language Haskell, and is the lead designer of the widely-used Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC). He has written two textbooks about the implementation of functional languages.

CodeNode

In August 2015, Skills Matter opened the doors to CodeNode, our new 23,000 sqft Tech Events and Community venue. CodeNode provides fantastic meetup, conference, training and collaboration spaces with unrivalled technology capabilities for our tech, digital and developer communities - a long held dream coming true !

With fantastic transport links and located in the heart of London's Tech City, we could not think of a better location for our 60,000 strong engineering community!

With seven event rooms, including a 300 seater lecture room, thousands more community members will be able to visit CodeNode to learn and share skills, code and collaborate on projects.

CodeNode features a 5,000 sqft break-out space, complete with fully-licensed bar, plenty of power sockets, meeting and collaboration spaces and entertainment areas.

CodeNode will also see the opening of a permanent Hack Space, stacked with microprocessors and the latest tools and devices to play with. A community film studio will be opening too, which you can use to record any tutorials or demo's you may want to share with our community.

If you're interested in hiring CodeNode for your upcoming event, check out more details here.

Haskell eXchange 2018 Diversity Scholarship Plan

Skills Matter is proud and happy to share our Haskell eXchange Diversity Scholarship Plan which provides support to those from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups in the technology and/or open source communities who may not have the opportunity to attend Haskell eXchange for various reasons.

Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary ticket to the conference.

Please note, travel expenses are not covered under this scholarship and are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient.

Eligibility

Applicants should be from a traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups in the technology and/or open source communities and be unable to attend without some assistance.

We look forward to having you at Haskell eXchange 2018!

To apply please fill in this form:

Volunteer at Haskell eXchange 2018!

Want to help us facilitate a great conference? Help us set up the conference spaces, introduce talks and speakers, field Q&A questions with mics, or support some of the workshops and hacks we've got in store? Sign up as a volunteer and get a free ticket to the conference!

We ask all volunteers to help us with the set up of the conference on 10 October (the day before the conference) and and some hours of your time during the conference, for example to compare the talks or help field questions with mics.

If that sounds like fun, email conference@skillsmatter.com and we'll be in touch shortly to sign you up to this year's volunteering team.

Come and join us at HaskellX2gether Community Event 2018!

We hope Haskell eXchange 2018 will inspire you with lots of new ideas. If you fancy diving in for more with hands on workshops and free hacking, join fellow Haskell eXchange attendees and some of the most talented coders and experts, for the HaskellX2gether event and create something amazing together! Participation is free for registered attendees, and you can register here.

Joining us for Haskell eXchange 2018 and want more? Make it a whole week of Haskell learning with these fringe courses...

Well-Typed's Fast Track to Haskell with Andres Löh

8th - 9th October 2018

Are you interested in a highly intensive, highly practical two day Haskell course? Join this workshop to learn Haskell's excellent capabilities for abstraction and how you can use Haskell to quickly develop correct programs that are close to a given specification.

While we will touch on the theoretical foundations of the language, the focus of this Haskell course is most definitely practice: You will learn how to best use the Haskell toolchain, about important best practices in program development, and you will gain a true understanding on how to best harness and utilise Haskell's power!

Upon completion of this Haskell course, you will be able to design robust functional programs in a principled and systematic way - the kind of things that are difficult to pick up from reading a book.

Well-Typed's Guide to the Haskell Type System with Andres Löh

10th October 2018

In this one-day course, you will take an in-depth look into Haskell's type system, including the various language extensions that the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC) has to offer.

Well-Typed's Guide to Haskell Performance and Optimization with Andres Löh

15th - 16th October 2018

Are you ready to take a look beyond the surface of Haskell and really get the details of how things are implemented? Ready for a Haskell course that moves past the basics and focuses on the importance of performance and optimization - this course is for you!

In this course, you'll take a look beyond the surface of Haskell and at how things are implemented. You'll discuss the internal representation of data on the heap, what exactly lazy evaluation means and how it works, how the compiler translates Haskell code to a target language via several internal representations, and what you can and cannot reasonably expect the compiler to do, and how you can tweak the optimizer behaviour by using compiler pragmas such as inlining annotations and rewrite rules.
