Get Programming with Haskell Paperback / softback

Description

Unlike any other programming language, Haskell is purely functionalwith a strong type system and lazy evaluation.

It is arguable the mostinteresting language but also has the reputation of being one of themost challenging to learn.

Learning Haskell doesn't have to bedifficult, and this book can help!Get Programming with Haskell introduces you to the Haskell languagewithout drowning you in academic jargon and heavy functionalprogramming theory.

By working through 43 easy-to-follow lessons,you'll learn Haskell by doing Haskell.

This book starts with firstconcepts, building your knowledge with concrete examples andexercises.

You'll learn to think the Haskell way, as you start tounderstand the language and how to use it effectively. And you'll reallyappreciate the crystal-clear illustrations, quick-checks, and open-endedtasks that make sure you're solid on each new concept before you movealong!

KEY FEATURES* Full of interesting examples* Easy approach to functional programming basics* Write safe, predictable code with fewer bugs* Lots of illustrations and exercisesReaders should have some experience with JavaScript, Python orRuby.

No functional programming or math skills required. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGYHaskell is a purely functional programming language.

It treats programs asmuch like math as you can, requires you to think more than you type, andcan express the idea of infinite lists in code!

These are just the more obviousfeatures that make Haskell unlike any other programming language AUTHOR BIOWill Kurt currently works as a Data Scientist at Quick Sprout.

With aformal background in both Computer Science (MS) and English Literature(BA) he is fascinated with explaining complex technical topics as clearlyand generally as possible.

He has taught a course section on Haskell at theUniversity of Nevada, Reno and given workshops on FunctionalProgramming.

He also blogs about probability at CountBayesie.com.
