Oliver and Andrew will demonstrate the use of Haskell to control industrial robots in a real-world manufacturing environment. They will also show that Haskell can be used to interact with the state-of-the-art general-purpose planning library "Fast Downward" to find optimal plans for robot actions.

Oliver first discovered Haskell in late 2011, mostly curious as to what this radically different language was all about. After successfully type-checking his first program, he was hooked by the language's combination of succinctness and expressivity, and fascinated by the rich amount of theory and rigour behind the concepts.
Andrew is a hardware engineer who was driven to start a software company to solve problems for hardware engineers!
