  • In today’s software enabled world, SMEs have commonly implemented their own home-grown digital solutions, often acting as their proof-of-concepts for new business ideas or to support their business operations. As companies grow, new requirements become more relevant, such as having a software system that can deal with a business’s growing number of clients or having the opportunity to increase business productivity by better use of digital technologies.

  • TidalCycles (or just Tidal for short) is a domain specific language for making live patterns, usually musical patterns. I started making it over ten years ago, and it's since become an active free/open source project used by musicians around the world. I last gave a Sheffield FP meetup talk about this at def_shef about five years ago, so time for an update!

    I'll talk about the (now much cleaner) innards of Tidal, how patterns are represented and manipulated as pure functions of time, and how state enters the picture. I'll also go into how patterns work as applicative functors and monads, to allow them to be flexibly combined. I'll more generally talk about the social context for this work, and what it feels like to hack haskell in nightclubs at 4AM in the morning while people dance to your code.. With plenty of demos along the way to keep things fun and accessible. All questions (especially stupid ones) will be welcome!

  • Advances in digital technologies have brought big changes to human movement measurement. How do you navigate the myriad of products to get the functionality and cost you need for patient or athlete rehabilitation?
