Haskell is hard, and cats are busy, but if they can do it so can we.
We gonna take Haskell by storm, with a book and video series. We will meet every two weeks and knock off a couple of chapters and accompanying videos. By the time we are down we will be Hask(>>=)Kats, which are side-effect free happy kitties after they grow up.
The pdf is in the file section of this site.
Please download and install the G.H.C. (Glasgow Haskell Compiler) which is part of:
For OSX-Maverick here's some special instructions, thanks to Kat:
here is the link to the video:
NOTE! the Haskell-platform, has all the tools we'll need and then some. The book and video both use the deprecated Hugs compiler; it works okay; but the renowned Glasgow Haskell Compiler 7.6.x included in the Haskell-platform, is the current standard. When it's installed and you open a command prompt (terminal) and type ghci you should get the prelude prompt, Prelude>. And you are ready to go. Those using windows might have an easier time with WinGHCi, which makes loading modules easier. Any text editor will do, but some do a better job of highlighting and such. Popular choices are Emacs, Vim, and Sublime.
and we'll collect illustrative examples and post them to:
Extra Haskell goodness from "Learn your a Haskell for greater good":
Good video for early chapters of "Learn You a Haskell . . ."
answers to questions in Hutton's book.
QuickCheck is such a cool testing library, all the other F.P. languages steal from it.
