**Summary**

*Get Programming with Haskell* introduces you to the Haskell language without drowning you in academic jargon and heavy functional programming theory. By working through 43 easy-to-follow lessons, you'll learn Haskell the best possible way--by doing Haskell

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

**About the Technology**

Programming languages often differ only around the edges--a few keywords, libraries, or platform choices. Haskell gives you an entirely new point of view. To the software pioneer Alan Kay, a change in perspective can be worth 80 IQ points and Haskellers agree on the dramatic bene ts of thinking the Haskell way--thinking functionally, with type safety, mathematical certainty, and more. In this hands-on book, that's exactly what you'll learn to do.

**About the Book**

*Get Programming with Haskell* leads you through short lessons, examples, and exercises designed to make Haskell your own. It has crystal-clear illustrations and guided practice. You will write and test dozens of interesting programs and dive into custom Haskell modules. You will gain a new perspective on programming plus the practical ability to use Haskell in the everyday world. (The 80 IQ points: not guaranteed.)
