*When*: Monday 18th June. 7pm for 7:05

*Where*: MadLab at Plant NOMA https://madlab.org.uk/find-us/

*What*:  Conor Farrell (@SectoidCmdr <https://twitter.com/SectoidCmdr>)
will give us an Introduction to Idris <https://www.idris-lang.org/>.

"Idris is a purely functional language that has a number of interesting
features like dependent types and totality checking. It can also be used as
a proof assistant, similar to Coq and Agda.

In this talk I’ll cover development using Idris and how you can use types
to help you write your code - rather than thinking of types just as things
that need to be checked, we can instead see them as a plan for producing a
robust program by following the three steps of type, define and refine.

You don’t need any experience with Idris or functional programming as I’ll
be starting from the basics, but if you do happen to know Haskell you’ll
probably see some similarities!"
