Haskell Discussion, Help, and all that
« on: August 02, 2011, 09:56:43 pm »
Well, I think my Haskell has come far along enough to consider myself just below the intermediate mark of using it, so I decided to make a topic for Haskell discussion and the like :) I don't know how many Haskell programmers we have here (perhaps more than Ruby programmers?) but it's worth a shot at making a topic answering who will come.

With that being said, I'll discuss what I've been snoopin around lately.  On the side of making my contest #3 entry, Ive been working on making a simple MMOARPG game (stands for "massive multiplayer online action role playing game", not something like "meet my obese assholic rocket propelled grandma" or the like), in which the server-side is currently being written in Haskell (the client side is likely to be C or Java, I would do Ruby, since it would be excellent for this if it weren't running at pythonic speeds :/) so, I'm putting my Haskell knowledge straight to use ;D has anyone else made applications in Haskell before?

And, for those who want to look into learning it, I suggest either reading "Real World Haskell" (you can buy the book or even read it online!) or checking

There's also A Gentle Introduction to Haskell Version 98 for those who are interested. :)
I like Haskell, but I can't say I've ever done anything serious in it :/

I'm carefully starting to muck about in Haskell at the moment myself.  I'm still going through the first few chapters of "Learn you a Haskell."  I'm not really sure what I can do with it, though, besides perhaps doing something that needs a lot of threads or processes.
My website: Currently boring.

   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

i've been going slowly [read: turtle swimming in molasses slow] in learnyouahaskell because i don't really know what to program with it. i just use it to solve project euler problems and implement algorithms/data structures for the challenge. i'm at 9. Input and Output, if anyone's curious.

I started to hear more and more about it lately. Note to Ashbad, make sure to keep the focus on ROL, TaN and other calc projects first, though. :P But yeah I am curious what can be done with it.
