#100DaysOfHaskell: Start

February, 2021

When you have a look at all my post, you can see that many of them are about JavaScript.

The more I’ve grown as an engineer/developer, the more I’ve moved away from caring too much about implementation details.

Tools like languages, frameworks and libraries come and go, but ideas, concepts and patterns stay way longer.

This is why I’m very open-minded towards learning new concepts.

Functional Programming is one of these concepts I find very interesting and intuitive.

Nowadays I’m more into mentoring, especially about ideas and concepts, so I don’t program that much.

What do I do? So I already did a lot of functional programming in JavaScript and TypeScript, because this is what you use when you do a lot of React stuff, but I want to fully immerse into functional programming, not just when I need it.

This is why I decided to have a look at Haskell and I just started a #100DaysOfHaskell challenge. Because I want to see these new concepts in action, I try do some programming with Haskell every day.

You will see my progress from time to time on my blog and live on twitter.

Currently, my code is on repl.it until I’ll find a better solution. If you know about a better solution (the code breaks when you hit the run button), let me know!

Send me a tweet or a message if you’ve got some ideas or questions!
