Learning Haskell Programming [Video]

By: Hakim Cassimally

Overview of this book

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 would begin with the fundamentals and building blocks of Haskell programming language with special emphasis on functional programming. It will be covering how Haskell variables, syntax work alongwith Haskell datatypes and functions. You will learn how to solve programming problems while creating an application with hands-on experience. You will then move on to learning writing expressions and high-order functions. At the end of the video, you will be able to build a complete application with Haskell alongwith learning the important functionalities.

If you're worried that being a "strongly typed" language meant that Haskell's types would be restrictive, never fear! In this video, we'll see how to define not just synonyms, but new types, including recursive ones! - Show how to define synonyms for existing types - Create a basic Algebraic Data Type, similar to "Enum" in other languages - Create a more complex ADT with parameters and recursion
