Tuesday 25 November at The Stand Comedy Club, I will be part of the line up at Bright Club, speaking on the subject of 'Turingery'. Bright Club is stand-up by academics---we are trained professionals; don't try this at home! Doors open 7:30pm, show starts 8:30pm. The Stand is at 5 York Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3EB. Tickets £5 at the door or online.
When learning a new language or system I always find that it's best to do far more reading than writing in order to get a feel for the right approach and conventions. I was wondering if there is an opinion about what are some very well written projects that could be studied.
tl;dr What are some examples of beautiful Haskell?submitted by wreel

The type of Aeson's withObject uses continuation passing stylewithObject :: String -> (Object -> Parser a) -> Value -> Parser a
And similarly for withText, withArray, ... . It seems to me that String -> Value -> Parser Object (available as \s -> withObject s return) would be more useful.
Why is withObject given this type? Have a missed something and the CPS version is easier to use for some reason?submitted by tomejaguar

Hello all! I'm just putting this up here so that others don't need to go through the effort of reporting it.
You may have noticed that GitHub's highlighting of Haskell recently went quite precipitously downhill. Here's my feedback on it, which I've submitted to support: https://gist.github.com/mgsloan/3449f72a2918628a4906submitted by mgsloan
