Learning Path: Haskell: Functional Programming in Haskell
Explore functional programming and build real-world applications with Haskell
Haskell is one of the powerful functional programming language designed to work with complex data. Its emphasis on "purity" makes it easier to create rock-solid applications which stay maintainable and error-free even as they grow in scale.
If you're a developer with some experience in object-oriented programming languages, such as C, C++, Java, and wish to build applications using Haskell, then you should surely go for this Learning Path.
Packt’s Video Learning Path is a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.
Let's take a quick look at your learning journey. This Learning Path begins with making your familiar with the concepts of functional programming and Haskell language. Then, you will learn to address all the problems with functional programming and Haskell with distinguishing the difference between the two. You will also learn Haskell in depth with creating your first Haskell program. Next, you will be briefed through GHCi (Glasgow Haskell Compiler). As you progress, you will learn to develop real programs that will make use of file I/O, command-line parsers and various third-party packages. You will then see how to perform data processing and handling of the program. Finally, you will learn the different ways of storing data in your file system and interacting with them.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will be able to write your own Haskell programs and also have ample knowledge of the important functionalities of Haskell.
About the Author:
For this course, we have the best works of this esteemed author:
- Richard Cook is a staff software engineer at Tableau Software and works on high-performance relational database systems. He works primarily in C++, but has experience in a broad range of languages and technologies. He is a keen user of Haskell in his spare time and is frequently able to apply his functional programming and Haskell experience to his daily work. He is organizer of the Seattle Area Haskell Users’ Group and an active member of the Seattle functional programming community. He is currently developing a machine-learning framework for Haskell. He has a deep interest in programming languages and type systems in general, having developed compilers and developer tooling in the past. He is also a keen user of Python and C# and works regularly on all major desktop operating systems and dabbles with web applications.
