GHC Newcomers Guide
The Glasgow Haskell Compiler is a core piece in every Haskeller's toolbox, and an impressive piece of software. Gaining insight into its internals is a great way to better understand the language. In this session we will walk through the GHC newcomers guide and get up to speed on GHC hacking from a beginner's perspective. We will see how to build GHC on your own machine, give an overview over the code base, and explain how you can participate and contribute to GHC. This year's ZuriHac will feature a GHC DevOps track with the goal to foster more contributions. If we have whet your appetite, come and join the track.

    What we're about

    We are meeting once a month to share knowledge of and experience with Haskell.

    Each time, one of us presents a topic, be it a library, a programming technique, development tools, or internals of GHC or other implementations. The format varies depending on the topic and the presenter between hands-on workshops, discussions and lectures.

    Prior knowledge certainly helps, but we definitely don't require you to be an expert to join and/or to present a topic. The only thing that is important is that you are interested in Haskell and that you are eager to learn more.

    HaskellerZ is organized by the Zurich Friends of Haskell (
