Learn You a Haskell

  • March 12, 2014 · 7:00 PM

As previously hinted at our next meetup will be a workshop.  Here's your chance to learn Haskell. This meetup will be hosted by the super smart and friendly folks of Silk. More details to follow.


You are expected to bring your own laptop and have the most recent version of the Haskell platform installed.

    A great refresher for me and presentation is structured nicely.

    Thank you all for attending, it was good to see so many interested people! You can find the slides and a solution to the final exercise on https://github.com/sebastiaanvisser/hands-on-haskell . The last slide has links to more resources.

    I didn't think I was going to get a place for tomorrow. I was hoping (and still am) to get a place of the next one, on the 26th, as I was there much higher up (closer) on the waiting list. I just gave up the place I just got for tomorrow (had to), so I hope I will eventually get a place in the other one. Enjoy the workshop tomorrow!

    Oh yes, it has its ingenious moments and there is a lot to learn from Haskell.
    But it fails to be a functional language!! Sure, it is functional in the sense that functions are ("first-class") values. It even is the first "strict" one in the sense that it catches side-effects with its new monad approach. But it introduces new concepts (namely types, type classes and modules) which are no values at all, neither concept can even communicate with regular values, they all have their distinct ontologies. And that leads to really awkward and unnatural implementations. This is the very reason, why Haskell is a flawed design and dead on the long run.
    (Do not mistake me for a nihilist. I am a truly disappointed lover.)
    Oh yes, learn you a Haskell now! That prepares you for the appreciation of a much more functional language ...
    ;-)

    Unfortunately, I am not able to come to Amsterdam Wednesday, as I have a funeral in the afternoon... Hope to be there next time!

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure if I'm able to make it due to a high study load, so I've given up my place. Have fun :)!

    Hi Michel, you've changed all rsvp's of all 10+ people of the waiting list to no? Hope there'll be another chance..

      No, the first 15 people on the waiting list have been added to the attendee list for the same workshop on March 26.

      Everybody, don't get your panties in a knot, we're working on expanding capacity.

      Bart: send me a message with your cellnumber and I'll give you a call if there is a no-show.

    Would have loved to learn all about this language ;)... but unfortunately I’m already booked for March 12th. Those who can actually make it: have fun!
