Hands On Tutorial: Build yourself a reddit bot

6th October 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 30 other SkillsCasts available from Haskell eXchange 2016

Coming Soon

In this hands on tutorial, you will build a simple Haskell application: a bot that does things on reddit.com (for example, highlighting posts that match certain rules) by driving reddit's API from a Haskell application.

You will explore a selection of practical topics that are useful when using Haskell in the real world, for example: monad transformer stacks for configuration and logging, parsing JSON, using lenses, and error handling.

It would be great if you could program well in some other language, and have basic Haskell knowledge (for example: what functions and types are, what map does). You will also need to bring a laptop along with stack configured ahead of time, and will need a network connection.

More info on how to configure stack can be found here.
