11:45am to 12:30pm
Haskell is without a doubt a cool programming language, but how well does it perform in a real-world, enterprise project? What kind of everyday experience awaits the working programmer?
How does one adopt a non-mainstream tool that is alien to most developers? How does this new tool affect the project in terms of architecture, modeling business logic, testing, etc.?
In this talk, Irek share stories about using Haskell to write a system responsible for data collection, analysis and billing. Attendees will find out about how interesting problems got solved, and get to see relevant code that illustrates the point.
No prior Haskell or functional programming knowledge is required.
