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.
