Someone help me. The Haskell Road is Calling...
For some reason, I keep picking up "The Haskell Road to Logic, Maths and Programming"
All my life I have avoided proofs and mathematics, but perhaps now is the moment to meet my Maker. I keep going back to this book.
For some reason, it is infectious. A beginner introduction to how thought is structured. A beginner introduction to what math is all about.
I had been wondering what I was going to do with Haskell once I finished learning it. I am a Perl professional by trade and even though some interplay has been going on, I never really knew why I was learning Haskell. I just liked the conciseness and elegance of the language and the mathematical purity.
The most important thing is to have passion behind what you do. If I want to go deeper into math for math's sake, then so be it... no need to artificially create projects for myself. Just enjoy haskell and math. It is a very very good fit.
