Get to know the basics of Functional programming in Haskell

Haskell is a powerful and well-designed 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.

This video course will take you through all the concepts of functional programming (FP) and Haskell language. First we’ll address all the problems with FP and Haskell. Then we’ll help you distinguish the difference between FP and Haskell. We’ll then guide you through Haskell in depth. We’ll help you create your first Haskell program. You’ll then be given a brief insight into GHCi (Glasgow Haskell Compiler). Later we’ll explore the different values, expressions and programs in Haskell in depth.

By the end of this course you’ll have a foundation set-up to start writing your own Haskell programs and also have ample knowledge of the important functionalities of Haskell.

About the Author

  • Richard Cook is a staff software engineer at Tableau Software working on high-performance relational database systems. He works primarily in C++ but has experience in broad range of languages and technologies. He frequently applies functional programming and Haskell experience in his daily work. He organizes the Seattle Area Haskell Users’ Group and is an active member of the Seattle functional programming community. He is currently working on 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. A keen user of Python and C#, he works regularly on all major desktop operating systems. He also dabbles with web applications.
  • In addition to his programming interests, he has an interest in machine learning, data mining, and mathematics. He can be found on various MOOC web sites learning about anything from complex analysis to Scala.

Basic knowledge
  • This course is for software developers with some experience in a “mainstream” imperative or object-oriented programming language such as C, C++, Java, C#, Python, or Ruby
