Haskell Weekly News: Issue 313

Welcome to issue 313 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers from November 16 to December 6, 2014

Quotes of the Week

  • Dijkstra: How do we convince people that in programming simplicity and clarity (in short: what mathematicians call "elegance") are not a dispensable luxury, but a crucial matter that decides between success and failure?
  • Dijkstra: Simplicity is a great virtue but it requires hard work to achieve it and education to appreciate it. And to make matters worse: complexity sells better.
  • monochrom: those who have learned from history are bound to helplessly watch other people repeat it.

Haskell Weekly News: Issue 310

Welcome to issue 310 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers from October 5 to 18, 2014

Quotes of the Week

  • spopejoy: That [Spineless Tagless G Machine] will always sound like the villian in an upcoming Ghostbusters sequel to me :)
  • pigworker: When you can make data out of potatoes, why would you want to encode them as functions?
  • fishcorn: When someone mentions lens on freenode... zeus-lens!
  • neelk: So constructively we know this style can be used to meet hard performance deadlines in domains where the penalty for failure is literally radioactive flaming death.
  • edwardkmett: At one point we had a type in lens where one of its arguments started taking parameters of the form i m a s t a b u. Upon reflection, we let it win the argument and decided not to implement the function.
  • Ivan Appel: ... while the popular opinion says that the main reason to pick Haskell is "to have fun hacking," in fact it's not so fun to hack in Haskell because there's not such much hacking to do at the first place. For instance, you don't need to spend lots of effort tracing and fixing obscure bugs, so if your definition of "hacking" includes heroic bugfixing, you'd be better off with JavaScript or Perl.
