Since most of my content is about Haskell, I would like to take this opportunity to inform my readers of a new conference that I and the other co-organizers of the New York Haskell Meetup are hosting at the end of January. It's called C◦mp◦se, and it's a conference for typed functional programmers. Check out the website at http://www.composeconference.org/. We recently issued a call for papers. I know it's short notice, but the deadline is November 30. If you have something that you think would be interesting to typed functional programmers, we'd love to hear from you. Along with the conference we'll also be having one day be a less formal hackathon/unconference. If you would like to give a tutorial/demo at the unconference, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
