Hobby-hacking Eric


no darcs lately

Have been taking a break from darcs hacking for a while.

Lately working on the Haskell wikibook, mostly importing my monads and space suits tutorial into the monads chapter as well as learning and writing about monad transformers. You'll note that the monad transforms text is a remix of Jeff Newburn's All about Monads tutorial with even more spoon feeding, because slow people like me need that kind of thing. Kudos to Jeff for granting us wikibookians permission to remix his text and to Paul J. for thinking to ask him about it.

This is greatly blurring the line between work and leisure. I'm learning about monad transformers because I need to use them for something at work, but I'm using a leisure-activity (building a wikibook) as a tool to help me learn.
