Many applications maintain data that evolves over time together with views on this data. An example are GUI applications that present information from a database to the user. Whenever the underlying data changes, the views must adapt to these changes. Incremental computing is about performing such updates efficiently.

In this talk, you will explore the incremental-computing package, which allows you to easily build functions with accompanying support for incremental updates. The package contains specifically crafted update algorithms for a set of core functions like filtering and sorting of lists. From these core functions, you can build more complex functions with the help of easy-to-use combinators, and the incremental-computing package will derive the accompanying incremental update methods for you.
