Programming in Haskell

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Fedora includes support for many programming languages, including Haskell, a functional language with a lot of useful, interesting, and peculiar features. It makes extensive use of lazy evaluation, immutable data structures, a strong but flexible type system, parallel computing, and a powerful if baffling abstraction called a monad. I'll give a hands-on introduction to the language and some of its packages, and give tips on Haskell as both a research and practical programming platform. Participants can hack along with Fedora, GHC, and a text editor.

For Flock to Fedora: I'm Red Hat Linux user since RH 3.0.3. As a professor of applied mathematics, I do a lot of programming for research and educational purposes. I primarily program in Haskell, Python, and Mathematica, and dabble in more programming languages than I can count. I use LaTeX to write scholarly articles. I also compose and arrange music using Lilypond, and draw with Inkscape and GIMP.
