I’ve decided to give Haskell a whirl. I bought a couple of books on the language and hope to move forward with a new programming paradigm. The idea came from my book about Text Processing in Python. It had lots of functional ideas (for lack of a better word) in the book, and I thought a good dose of Haskell could get me over the learning hump. The idea of functional programming is a good one, but I’m still in the early stages of the concept and the syntax too. It’s a slow-going part-time task, so I don’t know when I’ll be particularly adept at it to use it elsewhere, but you never know. 🙂 It’s always hard in the beginning, and I look forward to mastering this concept.
