I'm watching https://www.destroyallsoftware.com/screencasts/catalog/malloc-from-scratch and the words he uses for * and & surprises me, "splat" and "pretzel", I've never heard them before

not ready for that yet. But Mathieu of Tweag told me that they are working on something that should behave a bit like akka streams
my prez could be on either interfacing with cloud APIs or the work I did on linear algebra libraries

What did you do using cloud APIs?

glue stuff together using req, stm and a bunch of transformers
doing this for work atm

I like "glue", shell scripting quickly becomes unwieldy
lot's of people go to languages like Python/Ruby to avoid the weirdness of bash scripting, but I think Haskell often makes for a nice glue language

Awesome @ocramz ! :D I think we can make it happen, what say you @Jell and others?
Personally, I'd be very curious to hear about the interfacing with the Cloud APIs bit
On a different note, me and @Zalastax are going for this: http://www.lambdadays.org/lambdadays2018 !
