Hi Vitaly,

I'm a CS student in my senior year.
Like so many others, I've been drawn to Haskell for the beauty of FP and declarative programming, and am interested in blogging about it for my own growth and to help others.
It's a language you just can't get tired of coming back to because you learn more every time you return to it, and find a new stream of ideas waiting for you.

There are great resources to learn Haskell, and they're constantly growing but I wanted to discuss specifically which industry or types of projects you feel can increase adoption and interest in the language.

What aspects of the language would you like the community to highlight or blog about, that would soften the learning curve for newcomers from Python or Java?

This is a good question. I think that we have a shortage of practical examples. Anything, where we can see how to work with databases, interesting file formats, networking, will be of great interest. I believe that we have too many theoretical blog posts here and there.
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
