On September 17th we held the 19th meeting of FP-Syd, the Sydney Functional Programming group. The meeting was held at Google's Sydney offices and we had about 18 people show up to hear our two presenters.
For the second presentation we had Shane Stephens one of the Google people working on Google Wave giving us an overview of Google's Operational Transform algorithm which is at the core Google Wave. He then walked us through a reimplementation of the algorithm in Haskell.
A big thanks to Shane Stephens and Google for providing the meeting venue and the light refreshments.
