SilkApp: A Case Study in Creating Rich Internet Apps in Haskell
Erik currently works at Silk, where he uses functional programming to build a web application to create and visualize structured data. After his physics and chemistry masters, Erik started working at a small software company building CMS and websites. Wanting to deepen his knowledge of the field, he embarked on a software technology master at Utrecht University. Many courses used Haskell, and he immediately fell in love with the elegance of functional programming. After graduating, he joined what is now Silk.
