All this chatter about the Summer of Code has inspired me to throw caution to the wind and become more committed to an idea I had for a Haskell project.
I first thought to apply this to Python, but well, Haskell stole
my heart. I wanted to throw the idea out there and see if anyone
was interested in mentoring me through the process.
I want to build a MUD engine written in Haskell with Haskell as the
MUD development language. This is a great way to introduce kids to
Haskell as their first programming language. And when they get bored
and grow out of mudding, they will have knowledge of a real-world
language instead of just a toy language particular to whatever MUD
they were playing with.
Getting a mentor, and completing the project is more important to me
than officially becoming a Summer of Code project. But if they both
happen then all the better. Any takers?
