Excerpt from the Introduction

Haskell is enjoyable, and that’s what it’s all about!

This ebook is aimed toward those who have event programming in central languages—such as C++, Java, and Python—and now are looking to try Haskell. yet no matter if you don’t have any major programming adventure, I’ll wager a sensible individual such as you should be in a position to stick to alongside and study Haskell.

My first response to Haskell used to be that the language used to be simply too bizarre. yet after you have over that preliminary hurdle, it was once gentle crusing. whether Haskell turns out unusual to you at first, don’t surrender. studying Haskell is nearly like studying to application for the 1st time once more. It’s enjoyable, and it forces you to imagine differently.

If you ever get rather caught, the IRC channel #haskell on the freenode community is a smart position to invite questions. the folk there are typically great, sufferer, and figuring out. They’re an outstanding source for Haskell newbies.

So, what is Haskell?

Haskell is a purely practical programming language.

In imperative programming languages, you supply the pc a series of projects, which it then executes. whereas executing them, the pc can swap kingdom. for example, you could set the variable a to five after which perform a little stuff that will switch the price of a. There also are flow-control buildings for executing directions a number of occasions, resembling for and whereas loops.

Purely useful programming is various. You don’t inform the pc what to do—you inform it what stuff is. for example, you could inform the pc that the factorial of a bunch is the fabricated from each integer from 1 to that quantity or that the sum of a listing of numbers is the 1st quantity plus the sum of the remainder numbers. you could exhibit either one of those operations as functions.
