Julie is a linguist and teacher who learned Haskell on a whim.
As her interest in lambdas and static typing grew, she saw a need for additions to the Haskell pedagogical literature and applied her teaching expertise as one of the authors of Haskell Programming from First Principles. Currently she lives in Austin, Texas, where she homeschools her children, adopts too many animals, teaches Haskell at a local meetup, and is working on a new book, called The Joy of Haskell.
Talks I've Given
Keynote: A Monoid for All Seasons
Featuring Julie Moronuki
One of the great things about Haskell is the way it enables us to recognize patterns, give them names, and reuse them. It's been noted before that monoids really are everywhere in programming, but that Haskell gives us more ability to see them than many languages do.haskell haskellx monoid pattern haskell-teaching haskell-books typeclasses boolean-algebra applicatives
