Haskell Weekly News: Issue 188

Welcome to issue 188 of the HWN, a newsletter covering developments in the Haskell community. This release covers the week of June 19 to 25, 2011.


Alex Mason wrote in to remind us that AusHac2011 (the Australasian Haskell Hackathon) will be held on July 8-10, at UNSW in Sydney. "If you are an Australian haskell hacker, enthusiast, newbie or professional, we would love to see you there."

Florent Becker announced the release of darcs 2.8 beta 1, with many new beta features. Give it a world and let the devs know how things are working!

Quotes of the Week

  • [~functor@zygohistomorphic-prepromorphism.endofunctor.org] has joined #haskell
  • kmc: actually, C++'s "typename" keyword is inspired by INTERCAL's "PLEASE"
  • Toxaris: #haskell delivers a massively multiprogrammer online functional programming (MMOFP) experience
  • sully: although I'm switching to haskell more and more just on practical grounds
  • mauke: the greek letter lambda is an imperfect approximation of the symbol \
  • Cale: The trouble with sarcasm is that in order for it to really be effective, the listener has to know what the speaker knows. Otherwise, it's indistinguishable from ignorance.
