[Haskell-cafe] Functional programming techniques in small projects

Hi Markus,

I am afraid your questions are formulated quite narrowly so that people 
you might like to reach might not feel addressed -- so it might be 
helpful to ask yourself how your subject might look in the perspective 
of an "average Haskeller", if a such dies exist at all.

At first, please explain what you understand as "post mass production" 
and how you expect this to be in a relationship with Haskell.

Then, agile software development is used at projects of various sizes -- 
but I guess you want to use this term to emphasize *small* projects -- 
inhowfar do you actually require such to follow agile specifications, 
how about small and one-man-projects which do not follow agile at all?

You are speaking about »student-driven software development«... it might 
be hard for some people to imagine what you mean by this and -- again -- 
inhowfar this relates to Haskell.

Could you please be a little more explicit?

All the best,
