Any Haskell enthusiasts from Bangalore India?

Haskell on Reddit - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 4:17am

I am a newbie to Haskell programming. I would like to know if there are any Haskell enthusiasts that would like to work on Haskell projects. My focus is currently on learning Haskell and eventually develop side projects in Haskell.

Pure functional and pure logical language at thesame time

haskell-cafe - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 7:22pm
This question was bugging me for quite a long time. Can we have a language which uses the functional logic while being both pure functional and pure logical? Do we get any advantages from maintaining both both of this purities at the same time? P.S.: I have feeling the answer is no, but I am not sure. _______________________________________________ Haskell-Cafe mailing list Haskell-Cafe< at >

Haskell Project Ideas?

Haskell on Reddit - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 5:14pm

Hey everyone! First time post on here, and I have a request that hopefully you guys can help me with. I'm currently in a programming language studies class, where we are having to pick a language, learn it, and develop some sort of project within around 3 months during the semester. I chose haskell because it seemed like the most interesting, having never worked in a functional language before.

My request is if you guys could throw out some ideas for me! Not gonna lie, I am not the most creative guy when it comes to school projects, so hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction! The project does not need to be 100% haskell, but it does need to be focused primarily around the use of it. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

Need to understand "Type Constructor"

Haskell on Reddit - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 4:58pm

In LYAH (, while citing an example of type constructors, Maybe is referred to as type-constructor.

data Maybe a = Nothing | Just a

If I follow definition, given in the same section for type-parameters, Just, seems to be the type-constructor. For example, in Just "Hello" - Just takes a String and returns a "Maybe [Char]".

Can anyone explain, which one is the type-constructor Maybe a or Just and why?

Contracting Haskell dev role at Standard Chartered

haskell-cafe - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 2:09pm
The Strats team at Standard Chartered is hiring a developer for a 1 year contracting role in London. The role is to develop and extend our parsing and validation library for FpML, using the FpML Haskell library to parse and build financial product data into our internal Haskell data types. You will extend our library to support more products, as well as building testing and validation tools (e.g. in QuickCheck) to confirm the soundness and completeness of the implementation. This is a rare entry level Haskell role, and you'll join a very experienced team. More details at: _______________________________________________ Haskell-Cafe mailing list Haskell-Cafe< at >
