Haskell Weekly News: Issue 264

Welcome to issue 264 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of March 17 to 30, 2013.

Quotes of the Week

   * ddarius: (f x) is a partial application iff 
     f x == (curry (uncurry f) x)

   * flebron: "Hey, I am Haskell; and this is lazy; so here's a
     function; I'll call it, maybe."

   * WinstonChurchill: It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read
     books of quotations.

   * ab9rf: (on duck typing) if you want a
     duck-submarine-employee-tomato, you can do that

   * johnw: Stealing lens from the gods, and then having my liver eaten
     out daily.

   * dibblego: scala puts road blocks in your way proportional to how
     effective you want to be

   * hiptobecubic: I want my programs to either be correct or violently
     explode

   * shachaf: edwardk will try to get you addicted to monoids. The first
     one is always free.

   * merijn: So apparently there's a footballer named lens, who played
     some important part in the match against the Netherlands... Which
     would explain the fact that twitter is telling me "lens" is
     trending, I was starting to think haskell had won the PL revolution
     with edwardk as our glorious leader ;)

   * elliott: all I want for christmas is a boring lambdabot.
