  • Hands-on Haskell Introduction

    by Erik Hesselink and Sebastiaan Visser

    Haskell is an interesting programming language that is quite different from most other languages. It is purely functional, lazy, has algebraic data types and pattern matching, and a powerful type system. Learning Haskell can make you a better programmer, but it can also be daunting.

    We will teach you the basics of Haskell with a combination of presentation and exercises. No prior experience with Haskell is required. We will cover important language features like data types, pattern matching and IO, as well as tools, such as the GHC compiler, the interactive GHCi environment, and cabal.

    This is a hands-on session. Before coming, please make sure you have a laptop with the current Haskell platform (http://www.haskell.org/platform/) installed. This is version 2013.2.0.0, which includes GHC 7.6.3.

    There is a break part-way through the session for lunch.

    At 10:45am to 2:45pm, Friday 25th October
