I thought I should break the ice here; we currently have 22 subscribers,
with names I recognize from acid-state, mysql-simple, postgresql-simple,
hssqlppp, persistent, and even PostgreSQL itself. If I've missed
anything relevant here, please speak up.
So the goal of this list is to help improve the state of database
programming in Haskell; I'm not picky about particular topics as long as
they are of reasonable quality and relevant to database programming and
Haskell. This could be implementing a database in Haskell itself (like
acid-state), to interacting with traditional RDBMSes or newer NoSQL
My personal interest at the moment primarily lies at coming up with a good
mid-level interface to RDBMSes along the lines of the -simple libraries,
but I also have interest in an auto-pipelining client library for
PostgreSQL, which involves some very low-level details of the PostgreSQL
frontend/backend protocol. I'm also interested in higher-level
abstractions for dealing with relational databases in general, but I
really don't have well-formed opinions on how this should be done.
Also while SQL can be cool, it hides that coolness under a lot of
syntactic (and some semantic) ugliness; I often wish for a simpler, saner
syntax, replacing NULL with algebraic data types, and a richer attribute
types, especially relationally valued attributes.
So what you interested in?
