Welcome to another issue of Haskell Weekly! Haskell is a safe, purely functional programming language with a fast, concurrent runtime. This is a weekly summary of what’s going on in its community.
Client-side web programming in Haskell: A retrospective by Chris Done
Generating castles for Minecraft using Haskell by Tim Philip Williams
My kids and I have enjoyed building various structures in the game Minecraft, but it can get rather monotonous placing blocks one-at-a-time.
Introducing the Haskell Phrasebook by Type Classes
We are excited to announce The Haskell Phrasebook. Taking an approach similar to Go by Example, it emphasizes how to get started writing programs quickly.
Practical event driven & sourced programs in Haskell by Adam Piper
I’m going to provide a quick overview of the technique of driving a system through events, and what sourcing those events means in this context, and then show some code.
Right fold superpowers! by Igal Tabachnik
It’s amazing how sometimes just having a different framing of the problem helps with developing a much deeper understanding of the problem.
Solving a puzzle in Haskell by Chris Smith
At some point, I unfolded it and attempted it myself. It was not a success! So now I had an unfolded puzzle on my desk.
Student Blog: Testing Bipartiteness with Monad Transformers by Vasily Alferov
I’m here to tell you about my implementation of the algorithm for testing bipartiteness of graphs. A graph is called bipartite if its vertices can be split into two parts in such way that there are no edges inside one part.
The Power of RecordWildCards by Dmitrii Kovanikov
RecordWildCards is one of the language extensions that improve the situation with records. However, it’s one of the most controversial extensions at the same time.
Writing efficient free variable traversals by Ben Gamari
GHC’s free variable traversals are some of the most heavily used pieces of code in the compiler and we try hard to ensure that they are efficient.
Join the infrastructure team of a fintech company using AWS, Kubernetes, Python, Haskell, and Nix to build a declarative infrastructure. We’re looking for someone experienced in design, development, and systems engineering. Compensation is competitive.
