With Coronavirus continuing to keep our kids home for some of their education, we're getting an opportunity to teach them some additional skills they aren't getting in school. We wanted to share some success with teaching them PowerPoint.
A discussion of what Stackage is, why it exists for Haskell, why it might make sense for Rust, and my reasons for mostly thinking it's not worth it.
Miriam and I are happy to announce a new book, Begin Rust, for teaching Rust as a first programming language.
A quick description of the difference between mutable values and variables in Rust, as an addendum to the Begin Rust book.
I've begun work on a new compiler for the Rust programming language, adding a vital language feature missing in the official compiler.
I've been trying out a new dietary pattern recently. This post is about how I make decisions on what to try, and some general rules I've been converging on.
Lesson 8 in the Rust crash course: down and dirty with the Future trait
Haskell is revolutionary. But we're ignoring that. Instead: how to get Haskell into your organization, and how to make your organization more productive and profitable with better engineering
A Haskell code kata to sharpen your skills. Rewrite withTryFileLock to have a different type signature.
A short guide on approaches you may take on losing weight, and my recommendations for getting started. Targeted at newcomers to the health and fitness world.
We just did a bunch of rennovations on our house, including to our network setup. For the curious, here's what it looks like.
Programming languages, like the human body, are subject to the phenomenon known as resistance. Learn how type systems in programming act like insulin in the body.
I've recently shut down the haskell-lang.org website, redirecting to a new FP Complete Haskell site.
