Haskell Weekly News: Issue 192

Welcome to issue 192 of the HWN, a newsletter covering developments in the Haskell community. This release covers the week of July 17 to 23, 2011.


Nicolas Wu announced the 4th edition of the Haskell Parallel Digest. The digest is made possible by the Parallel GHC Project.

Quotes of the Week

  • copumpkin: perhaps I should stop eating people I've never met
  • Saizan: agda is webscale in the sense that you need half of The Cloud to run the typechecker
  • kmc: my algorithm is O(1), but the constant factor grows quadratically as the problem size increases
  • cmccann: C++ is dual to Haskell in a sense: it's much too hard for the average programmer to use safely, but they do anyway with disastrous results; whereas Haskell isn't actually that difficult to use but people don't even try
