Next up on MMH!

Exciting news! We’ve spent this week growing Monday Morning Haskell’s permanent content a bit more. Last week we finished our series on API integrations by looking at the Mailchimp service. But don’t fret if you missed it! It’s now available as a full series on the Advanced section of the website. Feel free to take a look and enjoy all the new Haskell tools at your disposal.

On the Beginner side of things, we’ve also added a new series on testing and profiling our code! First you’ll learn a little bit about the process of test driven development. Then you’ll learn some neat libraries for implementing it in Haskell. You’ll also see how to test performance in addition to correctness with profiling and the Criterion library.

Existing Series

As a reminder, here are all the existing series we have on the blog. For beginners:

  1. Liftoff Series - If you’ve never written any Haskell before, start here!
  2. The Haskell Brain - A few articles on overcoming some of Haskell’s psychological hurdles
  3. Functional Data Structures - Any Haskell author has to talk about monads at some point. This is our series teaching monads from the ground up. We start with other structures like functors that are easier to understand.

Then the more advanced topics include:

  1. Haskell Web Skills - Learn libraries for many skills including database management and writing a server.
  2. Haskell and AI - See why Haskell is a good fit for Machine Learning and AI. Then examine some of the libraries we can use to make it happen!
  3. Parsing with Haskell - Haskell is renowned for its parsing capabilities. Learn why by looking at three of the many parsing libraries Haskell offers to us.

What’s Next

Our API integrations series focuses on connecting to other helpful services. But most of these are only helpful in the first place if you have your Haskell code deployed on the internet. Since Haskell is still not common, many hosting services don’t support it well. In the next few weeks, we’ll look at how we can use sites like Heroku and AWS to deploy our Haskell code. We’ll also see a few other tricks we can use to enhance our deployment pipeline.

And remember, if you’ve never written Haskell before, now’s the best time to start! Download our Beginners Checklist and start your journey!

If you’ve toyed around with Haskell a bit but aren’t sure what to try next, you’re in luck! Take a look at our Production Checklist! It’ll give you some fresh ideas of libraries to learn and apply to your projects.
