Thinking about talk

This one's for the MIT crowd.

I will unfortunately not be in Boston over IAP, so I won't be able to do a redux of the class I taught last year, Advanced Typeclasses in Haskell. However, since I will be in Boston for September, it might be a good time to do cluedump for SIPB this year. I love talking about Haskell, and so I could do another talk in a similar vein (maybe something that covers rank-2 types and existential quantification?) I've also been thinking that doing an architectural overview of Scripts would also be good.

What would you like to see me talk about?

    Whatever it is you should also give a talk down at BostonHaskell when you get back! =)

    If we re talking about Backpack: I see that mostly as a GHC feature that needs build tool support, and it was developed in the open over a large span of time. If the way I m viewing it is right, then it s not so much Cabal adding new features: it s that Cabal supports all of the features of current GHC and Stack has fallen behind.
