The Monad.Reader

The Monad.Reader is a electronic magazine about all things Haskell. It is less formal than journal, but somehow more enduring than a wiki- page. There have been a wide variety of articles: exciting code fragments, intriguing puzzles, book reviews, tutorials, and even half-baked research ideas.

New blog

with one comment

I’ve decided to set up a new blog for the Monad.Reader.

I’m grateful to the people at for hosting the Monad.Reader for the last few years, but I felt that there were a few reasons to make this change. This blog is searchable, provides RSS feeds, enables users to give comments, and is more visible than a page on the Haskell-wiki. I hope you all agree the change is for the better.

I look forward to releasing Issue 14 here shortly.
