Why Haskell and Yesod

With Michael Snoyman

The Yesod Web Framework is designed around a central tenet: bringing the advantages of the Haskell programming language to the world of web development. As such, compile-time safety, high performance, and simple concurrency are first-class features in the framework, all inherited directly from Haskell. In this talk, we will look at these advantages through actual code and show how Haskell and Yesod can help you produce better applications.

    The talk was great.

    It was encouraging to learn that there is an effort to push Haskell along with all of its benefits into the mainstream.

    Can Michael relate in his speak to Monads ..
    This is a huge stumbling block to understand and use Haskell ( to those very few of us who have modest abilities...).
    Thanks, David.

    Hi All,
    Don't know where exactly to put it in the group - however, we're looking for excellent c++, Haskell, CUDA, bigdata guys (no necessarily in that order ...) - ping me directly.
    Cheers, Ami @ SQream

    The only common property is that both are not mainstream programming languages and both have elements of functional programming. Otherwise they are very different.

    They are both functional and have couple of shared idioms still both are very different, Haskell is Lazy Clojure isn't, Haskell make extensive use of monads Clojure does not, Haskel compiles to binary Clojure compile to JVM byte code, I can carry on and on :)

      No need to.... thanks ;)

    Haskell is type-safe, not a Lisp, and not JVM based just to name a few differences :-)

  • Matan S.

    Isn't that sort of like Clojure ? :)
    What are the main differences? just a thought...
