Haskell Weekly News: Issue 267

Welcome to issue 267 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the week of April 28 to May 11, 2013.

Quotes of the Week

  • ciaranm: a category is just a category in the category of categories
  • cmccann: the Either monad is like the Maybe monad, except with something instead of Nothing.
  • sclv: Q: Why are the adjunctions of Galois connections backwards? A: He never got the hang of duals.
  • acowley: blackdog's experience with IDEs is apparently both more sensual and more culinary than mine
  • cmccann: shachaf jokes are what the quotes section of HWN is for.
    cmccann: though lately there have been not as many :[
    shachaf: cmccann: Hey, there wasn't a single shachaf quote in the last HWN!
    shachaf: Leave me alone.
    shachaf: There were two cmccann quotes.
  • edwardk: cmccann: i'm NDA'd out of that space for a while ;)
    elliott: edwardk just collects NDAs so that he can focus.
  • trapdInIO: in java everything happens elsewhere
  • edwardk: i never bothered to release the c preprocessor because it was entangled with an old compiler of mind
  • acowley: I get nervous when I haven't triggered the impossible for more than a month or so :/
  • hpc: be careful, excessive consumption of lenses will go straight to your type signature
  • acowley: The longer I leave this function named "jumanji" the less I want to find a better name
  • ion: The next step is unsafeCoerce. At that point you’re halfway into implementing lens.
  • bos: i'm not sure edwardk is a good model to follow. (a) because you won't be able to, and (b) because you won't be able to.
