Alejandro Serrano serves as a Senior Software Engineer at 47 Degrees, where he devotes his time to Haskell training and the development of Open Source projects for the Haskell ecosystem. Previously, he held several teaching and research positions at Utrecht University, where he obtained a Ph.D. in Software Technology (on the attractive-sounding topic of “error messages for compilers”).
Alejandro has a strong background in training functional programmers, as a speaker, lecturer, and through his books “Practical Haskell” and “The Book of Monads.” He also contributes to the Haskell community by proposing extensions and new libraries and serving on the GHC Steering Committee.

A Beginner's Guide to Haskell
Featuring Alejandro Serrano Mena
This talk offers a first look into Haskell and its ecosystem. We’ll explore questions like what is GHC or Cabal, how we distribute packages in the ecosystem, and what are the main sources of information in the community. After the talk, you’ll have a first map to help you in your Haskell journey....haskell functional-programming hackage ghc
