Talk: A guided tour through the bytestring library

Yesterday, I held a talk about the bytestring library at the Zurich HaskellerZ meetup group. The goal of the talk was to enable the audience to write efficient code based on the bytestring library; i.e., explain enough about internals of the library and GHC such that they can judge the cost of the operations on bytestrings both in terms of time and space. The talk also covers the new bytestring builder (based on blaze-builder), which is currently under review for inclusion in the next release of the bytestring library.

Here are the slides and their corresponding handout version for interested readers.
