Haskell Weekly News: Issue 149 - February , 2010
Welcome to issue 149 of HWN, a newsletter covering developments in the Haskell community.
Hello Haskellers, this week's HWN was delayed a bit in the hopes of making it a bit more substantial. I hate putting up thin HWNs, but of course this must occasionally happen. We have several new CFPs for workshops this week, a new benchmarking package, and some fun quotes. Till next week, Haskellers, your Haskell Weekly News!
Call for Papers: Haskell Symposium 2010. Jeremy.Gibbons announced a call for papers for the 2010 ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Symposium 2010 in Baltimore, Maryland; on 30th September.
2nd CfP: LOPSTR 2010. Temur Kutsia announced a second call for papers for the 20th International Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation, being held in Hagenberg, Austria, July 23-25, 2010 (co-located with PPDP 2010).
PAR 2010: First CFP. Koen Claessen announced a first call for papers for PAR'10, the Workshop on Partiality and Recursion in Interactive Theorem Provers.

progression-0.1. Neil Brown announced Progression, a metalibrary which consolidates various existing tools for Haskell optimization (notably Criterion).
HList darcs repo. Oleg He who inhabits all types, but is not _|_, has announced a new darcs repo for HList (and OOHaskell) on community.haskell.org.
a beginner question: decorate-op-undecorate. Aran Donohue asked about how to write a function which can 'inspect' inside a datatype.
Translation of Haskell type classes. Enrique Martin talked about some experiments he's done with type classes, and asked some questions regarding optimization related to them.
Category Theory woes. Mark Spezzano asked about resources for learning about category theory.

Quotes of the Week
- lispy|web: This curses binding appears to be terminally broken
- lispy: I did, 'cabal install mage' and it complains about curses
- lament: Just use fix to find the least funny joke
- copumpkin: A monad is just a lax functor from a terminal bicategory, duh. fuck that monoid in category of endofunctors shit
