Great functional programming lectures

A few weeks back Miles emailed the BrightArray group with a link to Erik Meijer’s Functional Programming Fundamentals lectures. You can find them listed at channel9 tagged as C9 Lectures.

I’m not planning to use Haskell for real, but I wanted to pass the links on because I’m finding the lectures really helpful for thinking about software. Possibly for thinking in general.

Two practical points about the series: you don’t have to install Silverlight to watch them as there are links to other formats over on the right of the page. And the slides can be found over at Graham Hutton’s Programming in Haskell page.

Oh, and don’t forget to do the homework.
