I talked to him at curry conf, really positive and friendly guy

ordered the elephant book after realizing I didn't understand 90% of his keynote

lmergen11:07:06

elephant book?

lmergen11:07:13

when i google for elephant book, all i can find is this https://www.amazon.com/Elephant-Piggie-Biggie-Book/dp/1484799674

lmergen11:07:27

i can only assume that that's not about haskell

The drawing style is similar though:

robert-stuttaford12:07:56

which dutch bank should i use? a big one?

robert-stuttaford12:07:36

seems to be a coin toss. probably going to go with ING

helios12:07:07

a lot of expats use ABN, or ING. I don't dislike Rabobank but it's more dutch-speaking

helios12:07:16

otherwise also Bunq is viable :stuck_out_tongue:

happyhacking12:07:35

also KNAB is worth considering @robert-stuttaford

happyhacking12:07:54

it’s bank spelled backwards :slightly_smiling_face:

lmergen12:07:15

bunq and knab are both pretty cool, but i'm not 100% sure you can open a bunq bank account without using a traditional bank account for the initial "seed" money

nmdrenard15:07:13

ING is definitely more user friendly. But I also worked there for two years so I'm biased

nmdrenard15:07:10

If you also want a creditcard I think ING provides only Mastercard and at Rabo you can choose for VISA

nmdrenard15:07:46

source: I've got Rabo, wife has ING.

@robert-stuttaford if you’re doing international transactions, go with ING. I’ve had trouble with ASN bank, because they use an intermediary bank for those transactions. After a few months of putting up with it, I finally went to ING and never had a problem again. KNAB also uses an intermediary party, they’ll also ask an extra fee.

Just heard the last cognicast podcast with Rich Hickey about Ions. Looks more promising than AWS lambda for the JVM I think. Will start working for a client using AWS, really hope I could push Clojure at some point, they now use MongoDB with Java.
