I would like to announce the publication of InputYourData.com (beta) − the
online resource tool for financial, mathematical and scientific
calculations. All web applications found at http://inputyourdata.com/ are
written solely in Haskell and based on the Network.CGI framework.

This website began as an experiment to familiarize myself with the monadic
features of Haskell and their use in web programming. Namely, the mapping
and manipulation of user inputs as typed objects. Through these experiments
I found that Haskell allows for an efficient system where a variety of
operations can be preformed while minimizing as many resources (such as time
and memory space) as possible.
I am now interested in developing a similar type of website, except wiki
style − where all web applications are created by the user. Essentially, I
am designing a web application where users can symbolically declare the
arguments of a function and that function's call based on arbitrary
variables. For example, say a user would like to create a web application to
compute the roots of a second degree polynomial. He/she would simply declare
the arguments to her function − three complex numbers a b and c, and the
call of that function − (-b ± sqrt (b^2 - 4*a*c))/(2*a). The product of that
users inputs will render a web application that looks similar to
http://inputyourdata.com/cgi-bin/quadratic.cgi (all text is to be updated by
the user as well). As one could imagine, other, more complex functions
involving vectors, matrices, stock prices, and other arguments can also be
defined in terms of arbitrary variables and declared as an inputs to my
wiki-style web application.

If you are intrigued by this project and you have substantial experience in
designing Haskell-based web applications, please send me your resume and a
brief summery of why you are interested.
