Welcome to issue 279 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of August 25 to September 7, 2013.
Quotes of the Week
* dmwit: I typically figure a parse error on line 500 means I have
500 lines to inspect.
* bos: bah, all you category wonks spoil the atmosphere. we were
simple peasants, and proud, once.
* merijn: edwardk's delegation has reached the point where he can
have the language implementor explain his libraries...
* ReinH: haasn asks an offhand question. edwardk wrote a thesis on
it.
* JaffaCake: children are automatically killed if their parents die
for any reason
* geekosaur: if the platform is batteries included, lens is a full
fledged transformer robot included :)
* FreeFull: Mathematical laws are so much nicer than legal laws
* twey: to edwardk, v. to be working on a larger problem and
absent-mindedly spin out a package to satisfy dependencies,
accidentally solving the problem more elegantly than existing
solutions (but perhaps incomprehensibly to anyone who can't dualize
in their head)
* elliott: lens is the DLC expansion pack for Haskell
* monochrom: new catchy thing to say: an IORef Int contains an Int in
the same sense as an IO Int contains an Int
