More Haskell?

In partnership with the folks at Well-Typed we run public Haskell courses in London. If you want to get up to speed with Haskell and Functional Programming, we have the 'Fast Track to Haskell' course. If you're more comfortable with the fundamentals, why not attend 'Advanced Haskell'?

We are also running a series of new one day courses, including an in-depth look at the Haskell Type System and the GHC's various language extensions.
