I’m an American living in Helsinki, Finland and I like PureScript and Haskell.
Please message me on Twitter sometime if you’d like to get coffee or beers. Please try not to e-mail me.
Generally, I am available to answer questions about my libraries and about PureScript. Feel free to ping me on Twitter or FP slack.
I am on…
I would like for Helsinki to have a Code & Coffee meetup. Please contact me if you have any interest in providing space and co-hosting.
A Code and Coffee meetup is…
I have previously attended the NoVA Code & Coffee meetup. I hope you’ll consider hosting one in Helsinki or your own city.
Most all of my blog posts are on Qiita and are almost exclusively about PureScript and Haskell.
In 2017, I wrote 30 blog posts, of which 27 had content about PureScript and 3 had content about Haskell. I plan to write at least 12 but less than 50 posts for 2018.
I was a guest in April 2018 for the podcast CoRecursive with Adam Bell: https://corecursive.com/010-purescript-and-avocados-with-justin-woo.
In the episode, I talk about things that are good about PureScript, some of the things I believe about writing programs, about avocadoes and kabocha, and about the importance of culture in programming language communities.
I was a speaker at Small FP Conf: http://clojutre.org/2017/#purescript.
I talked about the RowList type-level structure using RowToList in PureScript and its various applications. The video and slides are available in the link, or via YouTube and Speakerdeck respectively.
I was a guest in March 2017 for the podcast Functional Geekery: https://www.functionalgeekery.com/episode-88-justin-woo/.
In the episode, I awkwardly talk about my background and how I got into PureScript and evangelizing it.
In October 2016, I prepared a blog post for the Futurice blog here: http://futurice.com/blog/making-a-weather-telegram-bot-in-purescript
The contents are fairly out of date (even as of 7 May 2017), but hopefully still somewhat interesting to read.
