Change in an Immutable World – Taming IO, ST, and the Demons of Unsafety
David has been a Haskell enthusiast ever since he (was) stumbled upon it in early 2012 as a physics student. After spending a lot of time with it and talking to others in #haskell, he proposed the unifying the Applicative-Monad hierarchy and removing the fail function from the Monad class to the mailing lists. The former is live as of GHC 7.8, the latter is in a backwards-compatible slow transitional phase for the next couple of compiler versions. As of 2016, he is member of the Core Language committee to work on the next Haskell standard.
