Quotes of the Week

     * Peter: I hardly know Haskell, but I can already write some code
       much faster and easier than I could do in C/C++ (and I've been
       programming 2 decades in that language)

     * Miguel Mitrofanov: Since NaN /= NaN, I think, we should decipher
       'NaN' as 'Not a NaN'

     * Achim Schneider: The essence of non-strictness, though, is another
       kind of story. Like a golem plowing half of the country until you
       remember that you placed him a bit absent-mindedly into your
       backyard and said 'plow', that still won't plow mountains. The
       essence of strictness is easy, though: get stuck on a stone, fall
       over and continue moving until you break.

     * monochrom: OCaml tells you 'map f xs is bad because it takes O(n)
       space'. Haskell tells you 'map f xs' is good because it takes O(1)

     * ddarius: It says *right on the box* that it it's intended for
       *both* research and applications.

     * Clifford Beshers: Why Haskell? Medical researchers announced today
       that MRI studies reveal that the structure of the human brain is
       significantly different in adolescence than adulthood.

     * Larry O'Brien: I really had a hard time refactoring my Ruby into a
       packrat parser. This was due, in no small part, because of the
       difficulty in understanding the types being built-up in the data
       structure. The paper, in explicitly-typed Haskell: clear as a
       bell. My code's behavior on unit tests: virtually
       indistinguishable from random.

     * SuperGrade: Haskell kind of herds you into functional programming.
       There are advantages to this manner of coding, and I'm getting to
       thinking you should attempt code this way almost all of the time,
       regardless of language.

     * Berlin Brown: Haskell is readable, fast, and expressive. I like it.

     * Yaakov Nemoy: Changing the type of a function in Python will lead
       to strange runtime errors that take some work to debug, whereas,
       when I tinker with a program in Haskell, I already know it will
       work once it compiles.

     * Michael Reid: Learning Haskell has completely reversed my feeling
       that static typing is an old outdated idea. The power of Haskell's
       type system makes it feel like you are programming in a dynamic
       language to some degree, yet all of it is type-checked, and that
       is just *really* cool.

     * weavejester: I've come across many parser generators that are a
       dream to work with in comparison to lex and yacc. The best one
       I've found so far is Haskell's Parsec.

     * David Roundy: What's the good of having a haskell-programming
       computational linguist on board if we can't get static
       compile-time guarantees of grammatical correctness?

     * Bulat Ziganshin: When FP just pass all the functions and data
       required for specialization of generic algorithm, OOP provides
       interfaces, virtual functions, anonymous classes, delegates and
       lots of other interesting ways to hide the fact of lack of
       first-class functions :)

     * [Douglas] Adams: was interested in computing --- I think his
       reaction to being told about functional programming was to wonder
       what non-functional programming might be.

     * ezekiel: I find Haskell to be like Lisp and APL and Python all put
       together in a way that leads me quickly to a solid result. Other
       languages work, but the road to the result is bumpier.

     * AlanYx: I've found that Haskell's uber-strong, static type system
       does help me be productive, because it increases the class of bugs
       that can be found at compile time, forces thinking at a higher
       level, and can help avoid edits to existing code breaking things
       elsewhere in the code

     * anonymous: Closures in today's world are a 'language geek'
       feature. Unless done extremely carefully and in a way that
       supports the various skill levels of developers, they end up being
       unusable and unsupportable by anything less than computer language
       savants. In their inherent obscurity and complexity, 'language
       geek' style closures are about as anti-Java as you can get.

     * anonymous: I work in a Smalltalk shop, where we extend and
       maintain an application that has been around over a decade. During
       the maintenance part of our job, it would be really nice to have
       type declarations on variables. For maintenance, the more
       dependable information we have, the better! The fewer things that
       can escape as runtime exceptions, the better!

     * consultant barbie: Languages are hard. Let's write web frameworks
       and go shopping!
