Review quote

"Real World Haskell will die Sprache aus der akademischen Nische heraus in die 'reale Welt' führen. Der Zeitpunkt für ein Buch wie dies ist gut, haben doch viele ihren ersten Kontakt mit dem der funktionalen Programmierung. Sei es durch neue Sprachen wie Scala und F# oder ältere wie Erlang oder Haskell, die derzeit eine Renaissance erleben." - iX, September 2009 "Insgesamt halte ich Real World Haskell für ein sehr gelungenes Buch und, wer auch immer Haskell nicht nur als akademische Veranstaltung betreiben will, wird an diesem Buch kaum vorbeikommen." - Darmstadt Perlmongers, Juli 2009show more
