Practical Haskell: A Real World Guide to Programming

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, include Cabal and Stack for managing projects, HUnit and QuickCheck for software testing, the Spock framework for developing web applications, Persistent and Esqueleto for database access, and parallel and distributed programming libraries.

What You Will Learn

  • 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
  • Understand monads and monad transformers
  • Proficiently use laziness and resource management

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, and Practical Haskell takes advantage of this to show off the language and what it can do.
