An approachable and thorough introduction to Haskell and functional programming. This book will change the way you think about programming for good.

Makarand Deshpande, SAS R&D
Look inside

Get Programming with Haskell introduces you to the Haskell language without drowning you in academic jargon and heavy functional programming theory. By working through 42 easy-to-follow lessons, you'll learn Haskell the best possible way—by doing Haskell!

about the technology

Programming languages often differ only around the edges—a few keywords, libraries, or platform choices. Haskell gives you an entirely new point of view. To the software pioneer Alan Kay a change in perspective can 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 hands-on book, that's exactly what you'll learn to do.

about the book

Get Programming with Haskell leads you through short lessons, examples, and exercises designed to make Haskell your own. It has crystal-clear illustrations and guided practice. You will write and test dozens of interesting programs and dive into custom Haskell modules. You will gain a new perspective on programming plus the practical ability to use Haskell in the everyday world. (The 80 IQ points: not guaranteed!)

I've been trying to crack the tough nut that is Haskell for a while; I tried other books, but this was the first one that actually allowed me to understand how to use Haskell. I love how the author mixes theory with a lot of practical exercises.

Victor Tatai, Fitbit

More than a beginner's book. Full of insightful examples that make your Haskell thinking click.

Carlos Aya, CO Zero

I thought Haskell was hard to learn. With this book, honestly, it isn't.

Mikkel Arentoft, Danske Bank

A gentle yet definitive introduction to Haskell.
