    This talk

    Game programming in Haskell: it is possible. I'll talk about the pros and cons of using Haskell for a game, and how to build a game from scratch. The talk will cover the basics of functional reactive programming, a technique to handle reacting to user inputs in a UI. I'll also touch on Game design, which is actually the hard part.
