About this book

Introduction

Get a practical, hands-on introduction to the Haskell language, its libraries and environment, and to the functional programming paradigm that is fast growing in importance in the software industry. This book contains excellent coverage of the Haskell ecosystem and supporting tools, which include the Cabal build tool for managing projects and modules, the HUnit and QuickCheck tools for software testing, the Scotty framework for developing web applications, Persistent and Esqueleto for database access, and parallel and distributed programming libraries.

You’ll see how functional programming is gathering momentum, allowing you to express yourself in a more concise way, reducing boilerplate, and increasing the safety of your code. Haskell is an elegant and noise-free pure functional language with a long history, having a huge number of library contributors and an active community. This makes Haskell the best tool for both learning and applying functional programming, andPractical Haskell takes advantage of this to show off the language and what it can do.

You will:

  • Get started programming with Haskell
  • Examine the different parts of the language
  • Gain an overview of the most important libraries and tools in the Haskell ecosystem
  • Apply functional patterns in real-world scenarios
  • Carry out data mining 
  • Program using Monads
  • Handle resources with Haskell

Keywords
