Haskell Weekly News: Issue 186

Glad you are reading this issue! This is issue 186, not 180... Seems that the last couple of issues got stuck on 180. Hopefully you will find pointers to interesting things happening in the Haskell community. This issue covers the week of June 05 to 11, 2011.


Hakim Cassimally shared with us slides and screencast from Geekup's first ever "Functional Programming Night."

Johannes Waldmann sent an invite to a Local Haskell Meeting (Stammtisch) in Leipzig, Germany on June 27.

We are very proud of the two Simons, Simon Peyton Jones and Simon Marlow. Isaac Potoczny-Jones relayed the announcement from ACM SIGPLAN of the SIGPLAN Programming Language Software Award. Many congrats!

Quotes of the Week

  • augustss: So JHC has bad code. GHC had a lot of that a long time ago, and they have slowly been converting to the pure way. It's the only sensible way.
  • <geheimdienst> monochrom: i thought it maybe would end executing the current do block ... <monochrom> use "when". <mm_freak_> use "goto" <hpc> use Java
  • cmccann: programming is a lot easier if you avoid working with dates/times, text, or numbers. I say stick to category theory, it's simpler
  • xplat: the underlying graph of a category is transitive. transitive graphs have no bridges. this is why trolls always have problems with category theory.
