Haskell Weekly News: Issue 266

Welcome to issue 266 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the week of April 7 to 27, 2013.

Quotes of the Week

  • hpc: the dirty secret of haskell programmers is that their power does not come from their PhD, but their bowtie
  • tibbe: I think I have implemented a reverse state monad by mistake. The numbers suggest I'm getting the values tunneled back from the future. :/
  • SaulGorn: A formalist is one who cannot understand a theory unless it is meaningless.
  • cmccann: laziness by default is a shortcoming. eagerness by default is a bigger shortcoming.
  • monochrom: #haskell-blah has brilliant people too. for example me.
  • limo: OK, guys was nice meeting you and now I'm a proud owner of a GHCi icon on my desktop
  • otters: lens law #1: the implementation must be shorter than the type
  • MartinDeMello: Any sufficiently well-commented Lisp program contains an ML program in its comments.
  • tgeeky: whatever man. Jesus only had twelve or so deciples, lens has 80!
  • SatnamSingh: I always thought that category theory was something that happened to other people. (#ICFP)
  • cmccann: see the thing is tabs are good for indentation. haskell doesn't use indentation, it uses alignment. it is not indenting. it is ASCII art.
  • JohnVonNeumann: In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
  • edwardk: you can view Yoneda f as enforced fmap fusion and Codensity f as enforced bind fusion.
