Issue 1.22 - September 27, 2012



Hello! Today, for your edification, is an entire issue devoted to Haskell.

Haskell is a very interesting language that has a lot in common with Clojure. The main differences are that Haskell is statically typed and statically compiled. It is over 20 years old and is starting to see a lot of use outside of academia. But its long incubation period has blessed Haskell with what is perhaps the most advanced compiler in the world.

Clojure is on a different course from Haskell, but it has a lot to learn from Haskell as well. In fact, it already has borrowed a lot of concepts from Haskell.
