* Haskell talk notes, Geekskool Tue 26 May

This is a bunch of random things I just collected now, I'll comeback with a
better list later.

** Learning resources


2 books, "Learn you a haskell for greater good" and "Real world Haskell"

[[http://dev.stephendiehl.com/hask/][What I Wish I Knew When Learning Haskell 2.2 ( Stephen Diehl )]] is a great
reference manual which you will go back a million times. Pin the tab.


All blogs at adit.io

** A bunch of people to follow

All of these ->

** A bunch of random links and blogs which you should read sometime after you learn the basics

[[http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/64th1/monads_in_python_in_production_code_you_can_and/c02u9mb][Monads, in Python, in production code! -- "you can and should use monads in your code"]]

Some philosophy - [[http://comonad.com/reader/2014/letter-to-a-young-haskell-enthusiast/][Letter to a Young Haskell Enthusiast]]

** A bunch of things to ignore for now


1. Please please avoid all monad tutorials
2. Avoid all of category theory, you don't need it for now
3. Error handling, its relatively complicated, ignore for now. Stick with just
   Maybes and Either
