A number of reviewers have asked about chapters that have not yet been heavily commented upon. Here’s a table that indicates the current state of play for all of the beta chapters we have published so far. It’s ranked by the ratio of the number of paragraphs in a chapter to the number of comments [...]

I had a lot of fun talking about concurrent and parallel programming last night. Thanks to Keith Fahlgren for organising the event, to Twitter’s Alex Payne for making space available, and to everyone who turned up and asked questions.
With any luck, Keith will have the video of the talk up in a few days. I [...]
I’ve just posted two new beta chapters for review:
5. Functional programming
6. Writing a library
Also, we’ll soon be starting to feed chapters into O’Reilly’s production pipeline. If you’ve been following our progress, but holding off on reading and reviewing draft chapters, this would be a great time to start taking a look if you want to [...]
Next Thursday evening, May 8, I’ll be talking about concurrent and multicore programming in Haskell. The meeting is being organised by BayFP, and space is being generously donated by Twitter.
The meeting will be at 7:30pm, in the South Park neighbourood of San Francisco. For more details, including directions, see the BayFP blog posting.
BayFP talks are [...]
We’ve had draft chapters of the book available for almost six months now, and the other day, our editor asked if we were getting much value out of the comment system that we built.
I think that in terms of the ratio of work put in to benefit received, the comment system has been one of [...]
Eaton is an industrial manufacturer that uses Haskell for several tasks in its industrial control division. They’re looking for a software engineer to join their team.
Sorry for the late notice about this, but I just found out about it.
Satnam Singh of Microsoft Research will be presenting an overview of parallel and concurrent programming techniques in Haskell tomorrow, at 1:30pm, at Stanford’s CS department, Gates 104. The talk isn’t listed in the CS department’s public calendar. Here’s the abstract:
