At today’s Theory Lunch I discussed limit languages of cellular automata, and Lyman Hurd’s example of a CA whose limit language is not regular. I wrote about this on my other blog.
Hey r/haskell, so I got introduced to haskell a couple weeks ago trying to use a really cool music analysis hackage chordify is using. I love the language, but didn't expect cabal hell would be this bad. If anyone could help me figure out how to get HarmTrace's dependency resolved, I would be eternally thankful.pickledchickenfoot

I was just looking back at my first big Haskell project, which you can find here: https://github.com/Julek/klyslee
It's a small "A.I." which creates music through a genetic algorithms. I put a couple of the tunes it made at various points online at (https://soundcloud.com/klyslee/tracks plus one now as a "restart", be careful of your years on the earliest ones!).
Looking back on this code, it's a bit embarrassing now, so I was wondering, what have you guys learnt looking back at your first big projects?submitted by julek1024

Now that I've been using Haskell for almost a year I find going back to imperative languages incredibly frustrating. I went and brushed up on my Python and the biggest problem I had with it was how verbose it is (which frustrated me more than the lack of compile time optimisation or type safety...).
I realise that what I'm really liking about Haskell more than anything is how terse it is. Once you understand the syntax it's not just quick to write but it's easy to understand.
I've seen a bit of J around and it looks like it might push that a bit far. Anyone have any experience with it? Once you understand the syntax is it possible to decipher what someone else's code means or is it a "write only language"?
