CHARACTERS ☆ Haskell Programming From First Principles I am writing this book because I had a hard time learning HaskellIt doesn't have to be that way I've spent the last couple years actively teaching Haskell online and in person Along the way I started keeping notes on exercises and methods of teaching specific concepts and techniues in Haskell that eventually turned into my guide for learning haskell That experience led me to work on this bookIf you are new to programming entirely H. My relationship with the Haskell programming language my efforts to learn it had its ups and downs throughout the years According to my memory and the archives of my blog my first attempts had been around 2005 2006 than 12 years ago Back then apart from a few books written by university professors and some Wiki based books I couldn t find much high uality material for beginners Therefore my efforts didn t last very long A few years later I heard the news about a new book Real World Haskell being written I was excited once again I even made a few comments here and there as the book was being written Unfortunately life happened and I couldn t spend much time on that nice book too Fast forward to the end of 2015 and I was working at a company in Ghent Belgium where there were some Haskell experts trying out things in an industrial storage system development environment The teams that I was part of had nothing to do with Haskell though my daily job was almost always about Python Bash ActionScript Java and some Scala Nevertheless being in such an environment rekindled my curiosity and I decided to look around to see if there was some new Haskell books targeted at people who didn t use this language before Luckily I ve heard about the book Haskell Programming from First Principles and I decided to give it a try Therefore I bought the book and started to read and study it in the beginning of 2016 Since Haskell was not at all used in my daily job I could study the book only in my spare time therefore it took me about 1 year to finish the book doing most of the exercisesIt is not easy to review such a book and I won t I claim to do justice to such a massive tome Instead of trying to motivate the curious reader I ll briefly write about my background motivation and what led me to this book If you have a similar background and motivation you can draw your own conclusions First a bit of background Before tackling this book seriously I ve spent my professional life in various software intensive systems but I ve never used Haskell or many of other strongly statically typed functional programming languages such as O Caml F or SML in an industrial practical setting working within big teams The only exception to the previous sentence is Scala programming language which I ve studied and used briefly in some very small projects mostly for small tasks as part of bigger commercial projects In other words I ve spent most of my programming life using languages such as C VBScript VBA SL PLSL T SL PHP Python ActionScript C Java ActionScript and BashApart from my professional and commercial use of programming languages I ve had my fair share of Common Lisp and some Emacs Lisp for a few years in an academic setting I ve also dabbled a little in Prolog and Erlang as well as played with various constraint satisfaction paradigms using MozartOz programming environment As for my academic education background I had a lot of math courses including abstract algebra topology etc therefore I knew what von Neumann meant when he said In mathematics you don t understand things You just get used to them In other words technical terms such as isomorphism homomorphism groups algebras wouldn t scare me away and I always liked a proof on a good day as long as it was also backed by some examplesWith that background I wanted to spend time to learn what it really means and feels like to use purely functional programming language that is a testbed of state of the art programming language research as well as a strong tool used in different commercial and open source projects I also wanted to have some kind of intellectual stimulation after having used mostly imperative and object oriented languages for so many years languages that seemed different but the same The rest of my review is at due to Goodreads characteer limits

CHARACTERS ☆ Haskell Programming From First Principles Skell is a pure functional language it is a fertile environment for mastering functional programming techniues That way of thinking and problem solving is useful no matter what other languages you might know or learnHaskell is not a difficult language to use uite the opposite I'm now able to tackle problems that I couldn't have tackled when I was primarily a Clojure Common Lisp or Python user Haskell is difficult to teach effective. I ll admit I did not uite finish this book I lost steam and patience somewhere within Monad Transformers and never really found the desire to come back again I had previously read Learn You A Haskell for Great Good which I imagine is the background a fair portion of people have Learn you a Haskell for its concise joke laden exposition did have some shortcomings which given it is free I can t grumble about all that much I hoped this book would fix those and it mostly doesUnfortunately it brings in some new ones in the processFor one it trades that conciseness for verbosity which is not necessarily a bad thing longer explanations from multiple angles can be useful when trying to understand abstract concepts In this case however I think it goes too far in the opposite direction this book really needs an editor to go through and cull some of that excess I firmly believe this book could be half the size without sacrificing much at allThe other issue it attempts to correct from LYAH is having exercises The issue with these and often with the exposition as well is they focus solely on the concept being presented eschewing everything else meaningless typevariable names writing than the tiniest snippets of code such that the exercises can become extremely monotonous and give little or no idea of real usage ie why do I care about thisThis all makes the book feel like a real slog to get throughIn the end a number of concepts did stick so it was useful from that perspective I can t say I particularly enjoyed the ride though and I have extreme skepticism that all but the most dedicated beginners would manage to slog through the whole thing
