There's some things in the works, but for now you can perhaps find
something relevant to what you're trying to do here,


There's a good breadth of topics covered.

Also, I recommend hanging out on #haskell, you'll just see so many
interesting haskell snippets, have people to help answer questions, and
of course, the lambdabot, that you can't help but learn haskell by

Good luck. Hope to see you online.
