1990's #haskell folk: The GC, our greatest strength (apart from monads)
2020's haskell folk: The GC, our greatest weakness (apart from records)
The fate of every major invention or discovery in the #haskell ecosystem is either
1.) To stay confined to the Haskell (& related languages) world, and never gain traction in other languages.
2.) To be (mis)translated into other languages, with the true origin forgotten. I'm looking at you QuickCheck, and your illegitimate children called propcheck, proptest, quicktest, or any such combination of syllables
#haskell trivia. Functor translated to German is "Funktor". Additionally, Funktor means "wireless remote controlled gate", and I think that's beautiful
After cleaning up a barn where three horses do IO on a lot of hay, I can finally fathom how the garbage collector must feel when I feed it a #haskell program
We are writing the year 2149. All our machine overlords are running on #haskell. It is a day of great celebration, for we await - since over a century - the major release of a library our very lives depend on: base-220.127.116.11
#Haskell is the PERFECT language to get well-paid programming jobs. You waltz into the interview, say "a monad is an endomonoid in the category of categories", implement fibonacci in one line and BAM everyone loves you and pours out money over your head.
Ah you mean a job where you actually DO haskell? Ahahaaahaahahaha no.
Doing ecological MINTy things for a living, and Haskell for fun.
Shitposting alt for @turion. Don't believe anything I write. You're welcome to laugh out loud wherever you are though.
