Book Description – Get Programming with Haskell pdf
Get Programming with Haskell – Get Programming with Haskell takes you through short lessons, examples, and exercises designed to make Haskell your own. It has crystal-clear illustrations and guided exercises. You’ll write and test dozens of interesting programs and dive into custom Haskell modules. You’ll gain a fresh perspective on programming and the practical ability to use Haskell in the everyday world.
Programming languages often differ only around the edges – certain keywords, libraries, or platform choices. Haskell gives you a completely new approach. For software pioneer Alan Kay, the change in perspective could be worth 80 IQ points and Haskellers agree on the dramatic benefits of thinking the Haskell way—thinking functionally with type safety, mathematical certainty, and more. In this practical book, you’ll learn to do exactly that.
It is suitable for beginners and is highly recommended as the first book on Haskell. It is also suitable for use as a course textbook. It’s very easy to read and understand, making the material very accessible, and taking away the mystery of Haskell. It also has very balanced and comprehensive coverage of the subject. This book has a lot to teach about computer science in general; Hence it is recommended to make people better programmers.
