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.
Blazing fast Fibonacci numbers using Monoids by Gabriella Gonzalez

Continuous Integration in Haskell by Matthias Benkort

Great moments in Haskell history by Type Classes

How many function arguments? by Jonathan Dowland
In Haskell it’s quite common for the implementation of a function to reference one less argument than the type signature declares.
Is Haskell a Bad Choice? by Brian Jones
I hope what I have laid out below serves as a good view into a non-software company up in Alaska using Haskell to develop applications with.
Micro C, Part 3: Generating LLVM by Joseph Morag
We will then pretty print the generated bytecode with llvm-hs-pretty and call
clangon it to generate machine code for our preferred target.
Parallel typeclass for Haskell by Gabriel Volpe
In the following sections, I will be providing examples and use cases for this typeclass to showcase why it would be great to have it in Haskell.
Functional design has historically been somewhat difficult to teach, and even harder to teach concisely.
Polysemy - Part III - Tests by Julien Debon
The problem is, how do you test effectful code? As the name indicates, naive tests would have various effects, rendering them “hard” to both write and run.
Syntactic ambiguity resolution in the GHC parser by Shayne Fletcher
There are places in the Haskell grammar where it’s not known apriori whether it’s an expression a command or a pattern that is being parsed.
At Interos, we are disrupting the way Fortune 500 companies and government agencies identify and respond to risk within their supply chains. We deliver the data and insights to business leaders that help them identify, visualize and understand the ripple effects that could impact their supply chains, before they happen. Recently funded by Kleiner Perkins and pivoting to an automated solution, Interos is in essence, a start-up SaaS environment.

Axel: Haskell’s semantics, plus Lisp’s macros by Joshua Grosso
Meet Axel: a purely functional, extensible, and powerful programming language.
Build systems à la carte: Theory and practice by Andrey Mokhov
In this paper, we offer a systematic, and executable, framework for developing and comparing build systems, viewing them as related points in a landscape rather than as isolated phenomena.
Coming to PureScript from Haskell/Reflex/Nix by Sridhar Ratnakumar
The initial feel for what it is like to develop PureScript as a Haskeller who comes from the world of Nix and GHCJS.
