Tech Talks are in-depth technical discussions.

Purescript is a functional programming language that compiles to javascript.  It is a strict haskell dialect that can run anywhere that javascript does.

Justin Woo is a self described Purescript evangelist and enthusiast. We talk about purescript vs elm and working with expressive type systems.  Justin also had some great metaphors about phantom types and masking tape as well as avacados and testing.

My team at Tenable is hiring.  We are a distributed team of scala developers working on static analysis of docker containers (among other things).

We are a team of smart people, working fairly autonomously on interesting problems.  We are one of many teams working on interesting problems at Tenable.  I think its a great place to work.

I am in Peterborough, in Canada, and our team has people working in the US, Ireland and the UK as well.
