Meet up

Intro to Haskell for Scala Devs

Monday, 2nd November at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by London Scala Users Group in November 2015


Intro to Haskell for Scala Devs

But there must be something to it, as there are languages which allow only this kind of approach to software design. Can something useful can really be done in this paradigm?

I will show you how the language developed in the late 80s called Haskell. We will explore its syntax as well as philosophy behind its creation. At the end of a lecture we will even develop a simple REST application written in Haskell, in order to once and for all make this comic obsolete.

Why would you want to learn Haskell? Some say it will make you a better developer, triggering ability to look at software problems with different approach. Is it true? You have to see it on your own.
