It's a rad to be working on an Haskell project for this year's Summer
I would like to hug personally every person who spent time on the
project so far -- thank you for volunteering, for the incredible number
of interesting ideas, and for the support! :-)
Google is also doing a great job in recognizing the power of the
language and the community. Thank you very much.
Hoping to hear from the other students as well, have a joyous Summer!
