Haskell Weekly News: Issue 289

Daniel Santa Cruz
Welcome to issue 289 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers
from March 1 to 31, 2014

So... where have I been?

My wife and I recently welcomed into the world our new baby, and as
some of you have already experienced, I was doing good getting *some*
sleep at night. Life has slowly started to get back to a more
predictable rhythm, and I am sure glad to be back doing this. For a
while there I thought that any project of mine before bambina was going
to have to be put into permament hold, but things are getting very
manageble now.

Sorry for the abscense! I was somewhat pleased to see that some in
-cafe wondered if this was coming back... this one is for you!

Some have mentioned that they wish to see more of the "reviews" that
HWN used to have of blog entries, and/or email chains in the different
mailing lists. I understand that dessire. I'm probably going to need
some extra hands to write those, if there are to be back. Maybe we can
start with something "lighter", a la tl;dr. I'm stil trying to work out
how we'd do that exacly. I'll keep you all posted.

Anyway, enough rambling.

Quotes of the Week

   * acowley: I will push machines-concurrent to hackage one fine day
     edwardk: not concurrent-machines ?
     acowley: Man, I walked right into that bike shed

   * malc: I have a coworker who constantly reads haskell stuff at work,
     nudged him towards the lens talk, that should push him towards
     actually doing work at work.

   * Fuuzetsu: I know someone who pulls in Lens just for & and ??

   * Eduard_Munteanu: Don't put your money in monads, you can never get
     it back. :P
