Haskell Field Notes: 2021

26 minute read Published: 2021-11-11

In the past year of not updating this blog, even though I said I would, I've been quite busy shaving yaks: in addition to the apocalypse, house work, and my day job, my wife and I have been working on a little Jungian-oriented astrology app with an accompanying Haskell backend. This has meant a surprising amount of new terrain to traverse, and I'll try to jot down some of the highlights here: I've gone from the depths of C memory tomfoolery, to the heights of actually reading some books and papers on category theory, passing through the vast fields of Haskell type level programming. I'll try to cover a bit more breadth than depth in a couple of "stories" from the Haskell trenches.
