This upcoming Saturday we have Hasura people join us for the weekend hack at Hackerspace. We would have some time for them to introduce us their PaaS/BaaS platform which is mostly built on Haskell implementation, and demonstrate us how to use their platform to prototype some hacks (ideally in Haskell for sure). As usual, it is a casual weekend hack. No matter it is you are having some questions on learning Haskell, or you are working on Haskell projects, or have no idea about how to get started. Please come and we could offer helps on your questions and project.
Hasura is a platform for building scalable application backends, while retaining complete control. With out of the box APIs for database, search, authentication, etc., Hasura minimises the time taken to build your application backend. It is built on top of Kubernetes, Docker, CoreOS and is designed to be run anywhere; from a dev machine to a bare metal environment; a single node to a cluster; our most recent instant deployment was on a VMWare cluster for a payment wallet startup in India.
This PaaS + BaaS solution arose out of the very real need of having to build applications rapidly and then having to maintain them (like Django & RoR). Hasura puts together all the best platform components along with the best application components like PostgresQL, Redis, Nginx and glues everything together to create a seamless, yet open experience for the developer.
