Welcome to issue 252 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of November 18 to 24, 2012.
Quotes of the Week
* rwbarton: edwardk now has Lens under Control
* atriq: My son looks a bit like me, he can put away the plates after
dinner now thanks to edwardk!
* mgsloan: Lens got 99 operators, but a (|>) ain't one.
* hiptobecubic: I feel like this program is just a bunch of glue and
duct tape holding a bottle of nitroglycerine off of the ground.
* xplat: Some software is worth trying; most is just plain trying.
* edwardk: Control.Lens is my secret ploy to get everyone to give up
on Haskell and just move on to Agda as they find the Haskell types
too complicated by comparison.
* rwbarton: alpha reduction is what happens when you let edwardk
maintain your module
* edwardk: er that was a tongue sticking out, not an operator
suggestion
