Blog :: Julie [Char] -> Chris [Char] -> [BlogPost]

We will occasionally use this space to provide updates about the book progress or other content that is relevant to this project or, more generally, to our goals of understanding, teaching, and documenting Haskell. Everything here is written by both of us, together. The author page has links to our individual blogs.

  • What we talk about when we talk about types - May 31, 2017

    Dialogues in which we pedantically dissect the relationship between types, type constructors, typeclasses, the instances that tie them all together, and set theory.

  • Dialogues on do notation - May 7, 2017

    Dialogues on Haskell’s do notation, for loops, and related matters. These took place over several months, and we learned from each other in the process.

  • Typeclasses in Translation - March 15, 2017

    Java from a Haskeller's perspective; an explanation of why interfaces are sort of, but not quite, related to typeclasses.

    Wherein we announce our exciting new project.
