Haskell Job Opportunity

Haskell on Reddit - Mon, 04/07/2014 - 11:10am

Eureka Genomics is a gene sequencing company developing low cost genotyping tests for animals. We are in the process of hardening our codebase from research prototypes to production-quality applications. We are looking to hire a few more Haskell developers to refactor existing Perl and C++ programs into reliable, maintainable Haskell. We would prefer to keep our team local to Houston.

F# compiler, library and tools now open for community contribution

Lambda the Ultimate - Mon, 04/07/2014 - 10:22am

F# is the first MS language to go open source. The F# team is now going further into the Open World to allow community contributions to the core language, library and tool set. This means the F# team will now take pull requests :)

From a recent blog post on the topic:

"Prior to today (April 3, 2014), contributions were not accepted to the core implementation of the F# language. From today, we are enabling the community to contribute to the F# language, library and tools, and to the Visual F# Tools themselves, while maintaining the integrity and unity of the F# language itself.

In more detail:
•Contributions can now be made to the core F# compiler, library and tools implementation.
•Proposed changes will be rigorously moderated by ourselves and other community contributors from Microsoft Research and the F# community.
•The full tests for the F# compiler and library are now available.
•In time, the full source code and test suite for the Visual F# Tools will be made available."

New gtk2hs 0.12.4 release

gtk2hs - Wed, 11/21/2012 - 12:56pm

Thanks to John Lato and Duncan Coutts for the latest bugfix release! The latest packages should be buildable on GHC 7.6, and the cairo package should behave a bit nicer in ghci on Windows. Thanks to all!
