The Haskell eXchnage 2013 #haskellx

Welcome to the live blog for the Haskell eXchange 2013! The Skills Matter team will be busy tweeting, Facebooking, blogging and Skillscasting the event throughout the day. If you’re at the eXchange, you can find us at the back of the room – come say hi, or give us a shout using #haskellx!

OK folks, that’s about it from us at the Haskell eXchange 2013. The Park Bench discussion is now starting, and the delegates are enjoying some welcome beer and pizza after a fantastic days of talks and discussion.

Many thanks to all of our speakers – Simon Peyton Jones, Neil Mitchell, Adam Bergmark, Andres Loh, Gracjan Polak, Bas van Dijk, Simon Marlow and all of the delegates who contributed and attended.

All of the Skillscasts (film, code, slides) are available on the website. If you would like to join in the conversation, you can do using the #HaskellX hashtag on Twitter.

Thank you once again for making the event such a success, and we’ll see you again in 2014!
