  • Functional programming is a style of programming that emphasizes the use of functions in contrast to object oriented programming, which emphasizes the use of objects It has become popular in recent years because of its simplicity, conciseness, and clarity This book teaches functional programming as a way of thinking and problem solving, using Haskell, the most popularFunctional programming is a style of programming that emphasizes the use of functions in contrast to object oriented programming, which emphasizes the use of objects It has become popular in recent years because of its simplicity, conciseness, and clarity This book teaches functional programming as a way of thinking and problem solving, using Haskell, the most popular purely functional language Rather than using the conventional boring mathematical examples commonly found in other programming language textbooks, the author uses examples drawn from multimedia applications, including graphics, animation, and computer music, thus rewarding the reader with working programs for inherently interesting applications Aimed at both beginning and advanced programmers, this tutorial begins with a gentle introduction to functional programming and moves rapidly on to advanced topics Details about progamming in Haskell are presented in boxes throughout the text so they can be easily found and referred to.

    1. So far this book seems an excellent introduction to Haskell (the programming language), and to functional programming in general. The "multimedia" programming described in teh book—drawing simple shapes and interactive graphics—is not so exciting or useful, and I wonder whether some of these ideas would be better demonstrated in terms of one of the Haskell Open GL libraries. That said, I think his framework of thought around Multimedia conceived as time-varying Behaviors, interactive multime [...]


    2. I only got a few pages into this book before the author took the definition of "abstract" wholesale from the dictionary. That's the cue to cut my losses. I do not need a glorified pull quote to tell me about non-technical vocabulary.Up to that point, about fifteen pages past the introduction, things were going swimmingly: the author explained the relationship between Haskell [Brooks Curry, the mathematician] and the Curry School of Expression; the importance (value and place) of a pure-functiona [...]


    3. All in all, it's not a bad book about haskell, but I don't know who is the intended audience. If I had to sum it up, I'd say this is an introduction to programming for mathematicians - or at least for people who know what a monoid is.The "multimedia" part is also a bit deceptive Unless you consider moving ellipses and defining an algebra for composing music to be multimedia.On the other hand, if you know what a monoid is and you enjoy the "algebra" part more than the "music", this is a nice book [...]


    4. Wonderful introduction to Haskell, at least for me. Being interested in programming languages in general, I find the author's take on domain specific languages worth reading. I'm also interested in computer music, and the material on that was fun. The book is generally well-written and easy to understand, but I couldn't say for sure if someone with little CS background would agree. For my purposes, though, a fantastic introduction to a powerful, expressive language.


    5. Excellent book for learning functional programming with Haskell. The culmination of this book is Reactive Programming. However, the streaming technique is relatively old, requires a hack to evade space leak, and by now is considered a bad idea generally. Nowadays one uses arrow approach to reactive programming. Nonetheless, this book remains one of the best on learning Haskell and functional programming in general.
