Haskell series part 5 by Pierre Guillemot
This is the fifth article of a series on the functional language Haskell for beginners. In this article we are covering pattern matching and guards.
Tuple Prelude by Mitchell Vitez
A Template Haskell Adventure
Clang-based GHC 9, done easy by Koz Ross
For various reasons, you might want a Clang-based GHC on a platform where Clang is not the default compiler.
Data.Map.Strict.Mapis not a strict map by Tom Ellis
I was surprised when I learned that
Data.Map.Strict.Mapis not strict. Its laziness has serious consequences for attempts at space leak free programming in Haskell.
Episode 2: Lennart Augustsson by The Haskell Interlude
The guest in our second episode is Lennart Augustsson. The hosts are Wouter Swierstra and Niki Vazou. We talk about Lennart’s long history with Haskell, about the various jobs he has had, all the compilers he has written, and about dependent types.
Haskell Foundation September Seven Month Update Extravaganza by Andrew Boardman
We want to improve and become more effective, so in this monthly update let’s dive into what we’ve done over the last seven months, what we’ve learned, and where we want to go.
Porting to Polysemy by Sandy Maguire
I wanted to spend some time today discussing how to actually go about Polysemizing a codebase. It’s not too onerous if you proceed cautiously.
Releasing QUIC and HTTP/3 libraries by Kazu Yamamoto
As I described in The Current Plan for Haskell QUIC, I have released the followings: tls, http2, quic, http3, warp-quic, mighttpd2.
The “return a command” trick by Gabriella Gonzalez
This post illustrates a trick that I’ve taught a few times to minimize the “change surface” of a Haskell program. By “change surface” I mean the number of places Haskell code needs to be updated when adding a new feature.
Soft Compatibility by Gautier di Folco
After few weeks of work, we released GitLab support last week. We previously integrated GitHub, so we expected that GitLab would be roughly the same, and well, expectations set up for disappointment.

typed-processdocumentation by Tom Ellis
In this article I explain how I improved the typed-process documentation to make this library shine brighter! Hopefully the techniques explained here can help other library authors with their documentation too.
Loop Breaker by Haskell Weekly Podcast
Cameron Gera and Taylor Fausak discuss Drew Olson’s adventures in looping. What should you do if you want to loop forever, but break out of the loop early sometimes?
This is your opportunity to ask any questions you feel don’t deserve their own threads, no matter how small or simple they might be!
Swarm: a lot can happen in a week by Brent Yorgey
Since then, the response has been fantastic: lots of people have tried it out, a few have even streamed themselves playing it on Twitch, and there has been lots of development activity.
Show & tell

This is the partial source code for Defect Process, a 2d hack n’ slash game.
tmp-proc by Tim Emiola
I’ve written a utility library, tmp-proc to simplify the use of dockerized backends from Haskell integration tests.
