This Monday (18th April @7pm) the Lambda Lounge is meeting with a
presentation by Hakim Cassimally on how Haskell is an acceptable Perl.


So, Haskell is "an advanced purely-functional programming language" which
supports writing "declarative, statically typed code". It may be optimized
academic buzzwords you've never heard of but... is it any good for writing
in the way that you'd write Perl, Python, or Ruby?

What are strong types, and why are we so frightened of them anyway? Can you
develop interactively in Haskell, the way you would in a dynamic language?
Haskell have "whipuptitude" (being able to get things done quickly) as well
"manipulexity" (being able to manipulate complex things)? And perhaps most
importantly, can writing Haskell be *fun*?
