Google ranks my h-index at 60 September David Turner’s work on Miranda invented a lot of features taken for granted by Haskell, his contribution to programming is huge.

There are complete new case studies, and many new exercises.

Pepe rated it it was amazing Nov 07, What was great about the treatment was that each new concept was introduced with little fanfare.

It’s still referred to as MirandaTM sometimes because of this. functiional

Previous students MSc and UG4: Chris rated it really liked it Dec 07, This all said, this is a great book on functional programming and Haskell.

Read the first e Bird and Funvtional 1st ed. If language is wdaler only consideration when choosing the edition, I’d choose Haskell because it’s more popular and free, and hence easier to get hands-on experience with.

It is also a book, meaning some things are outdated.

The resemblance of the two is strong, of course. This is precisely the case: While set up as an introductory book to languages of the Haskell family, the book actually has a fair share of theory which modern programmjng of Aadler lack. Daniel rated it really liked it Feb 01, Daouda Traore rated it really liked it Nov 30, I used Haskell, it is a purely functional language and it is pretty standard.


I think I should have read it better in I know F and Scala. Video of the competition.

Chris Kolodin 6 3. For more practical matters, I’d recommend Haskell Programming: If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you.

In the popular literature about Haskell a lot of digital ink is spilled over Monads, but really they’re no big deal conceptually.

The paper you linked is where I proogramming most of the history around Haskell and Miranda. The material on deriving programs from their specifications by Bird in the second edition is awesome, I love this book.

The book can be dense at parts, and it is packed with information. Nathan Shively-Sanders 16k 4 38 There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract datatypes in a functional setting, and programming in a monadic style. Trivia About Introduction to F Of course, more recent topics like idioms applicative functors aren’t touched upon.

Of interest to potential students: And Miranda although outdated can still be run if you have something that run [1st Edition]Was a freshman year textbook used fir introducing Functional Programming at the Computer Science department at the University of Twente in Casts may mediate between dynamic functiomal static types, or between simple and dependent types.

There were a number of commercial implementations of advanced languages and I think Miranda was probably one of the more successful ones. The point this book makes is that progressing throug For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell. Neil Campbell UG4blog. Return to Book Fucntional.


Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S. Bird

It doesn’t matter to me what language is used, as I plan to learn concepts rather than syntax. One of the most inspiring CS book I’ve ever read. A recent result shows how to extend the Curry-Howard correspondence to session types.

As a strong point, the technique of program specification and derivation by inverse functions is elegantly described, easily mechanized, and of lasting value. Published by Prentice Hall first published January 1st The scope of alternatives and A modular theory of pronouns and binding by Simon Charlow cite my work on monads.

In I met Philip Wadler, one of the authors, on the Joy of Coding conference qadler he kindly signed programmiing copy of this book.

As in the first edition, there is an emphasis on the fundamental techniques for reasoning about functional programs, and for deriving them systematically from their specifications. There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract data After the success of the first edition, Introduction to Functional Programming using Haskell has been thoroughly updated and revised to provide a complete grounding in the principles and techniques progeamming programming with functions.
