Haskell Weekly News: Issue 225

Welcome to issue 225 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the week of April 22 to 28, 2012.


Matthias Fischmann made a call for participation to the Hong Kong Haskell hackathon, with tentative dates of May 11-13 or 25-27. Follow to link for more information.

HacPhi, the hackathon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, will be held between August 3-5, 2012.

Quotes of the Week

  • lambdabot was last seen on #haskell 1 hour, 37 minutes and 46 seconds ago, saying: <IO ()>
  • elliott: oh, it's not haskell-cafe? that explains the reasonable responses ["it" = GHC mailing list]
  • Morandat: "The astute reader will have noticed that the above example clashes with our claim that R is lexically scoped. As is often the case, R is lexically scoped up to the point it is not."
  • quicksilver: lisp doesn't have equational reasoning so there is nothing to lose :)
  • JoeyA: One thing I like about Haskell versus C++ is that abusing language features tends to give more satisfying results.
    monochrom: that seems to be a criterion for drugs rather than languages :)
