What do you think of Haskell?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What do you guys think of the Haskell programming language? I have started it and it's challenging and the level of abstraction is just brilliant. Skills that I have mastered in Haskell such as recursion have also started showing up in my other languages. What do you guys think of Haskell? I have not met one person who actually likes it. It would be interesting to see your opinions.

There's announcement to use code tag in Programming section


"Make it future proof for some years at least, don't buy "only slightly better" stuff that gets outdated 1 year, that's throwing money away" @pipoawas

 

-Frequencies DON'T represent everything and in many cases that is true (referring to Individual CPU Clocks).

 

Mention me if you want to summon me sooner or later

Spoiler

My head on 2019 :

About your thread, I think my dad can teach me this but he's far from me.

 

Is it available on mobile?

If you mean this forum post, you should just be able to send anyone the link.

 

If you're referring to Haskell. Well, Haskell is a programming language so I guess technically any programming language is available anywhere. I know of a few iOS compilers out there, but they're all dependent on the internet.

I tried to get into it. When you need to be "mathy" it seems like such a good choise, I also avoid OOP when possible (When i see program with 30 classes and all of them are used once by creating one instance i puke inside) so the fact it's functional got me interested even more.

Never needed to use it (never did anything when i felt that it would be faster in haskell instead of c++ for me) so i never got good at coding in Haskell but i love the idea and it's elegance in some codegolfing etc.

I took a class that taught it. It was quite interesting the way you set up the parameters and the results of the function.

I really liked the way it makes you think about recursive functions. However, I must say, since I took the class I haven't really used the language for anything.

 

I would recommend to study it since it actually helps with understanding concepts and algorithms


The best way to measure the quality of a piece of code is "Oh F*** "s per line

Functional programming languages like Haskell are highly overrated. I guess the hipster factor is what keeps them alive.


Write in C.

I think you misunderstood the announcement, what they mean is that you should put your actual code in a code section (by clicking the <> button) instead of plain text.

 

bad:

function sayHello(name) {

  console.log(`Hello ${name}!`);

}

 

good:

function sayHello(name) {
  console.log(`Hello ${name}!`);
}

Well you seem to very negative towards every topic I've seen you post on, and your signature consists of 'Write in C."

Why not give some good arguments on why you think haskell is overrated?

@mikat Ahh, that makes a lot more sense. There seems to be a bug with the tags. When I try to remove the tag I get the "All values must be shorter than 25 characters long." error. 

If you're having problems with the forum, pm @colonel_mortis

Early access is the main feature at the moment, you get most content 1 week early (time sensitive videos excluded)

You don't have to contribute, it's your choice, and this thread kinda got derailed, if you have any other questions about gold contributor things, create a new topic :)

There are some things about Haskell which somewhat annoy me but I'm still learning it atm so I don't really have too much to say about it.

I think that's it is a complete waste of time to learn.  It's an obscure low-level language that won't give you any practical benefit over learning something like Assembler.  I took a programming concepts class as an independent study at the end of my degree and the instructor decided it would be a great idea to use Haskell, making me a "guinea pig" for whether it may be useful to teach in a class...

 

Spoiler: it wasn't.

 

Even the usefulness of Assembler is very limited, unless you intend to go into embedded programming or game engine programming it is pretty unlikely you'll ever need to use Assembler for anything and the odds of actually needing Haskell are about the same as winning the lottery (the Jackpot, not a small prize).
