Haskell for Beginners (programming language)
What you'll learn
- Haskell's Core Syntax
- Main function, Creating Variables Printing strings and numbers, concatenations
- Data Types
- Math Library
- Records & Tuples
- Getting user input
- Loops, Recursion
- It's recommended, but not required, to know one other programming language.
In this course, I'll be explaining simple concepts of coding in Haskell. You'll learn all the basics: printing to screen, creating variables, getting using input, doing simple math, conditionals, lists, records, etc. This is a simple steady-paced course that can be effective for anyone who has an interest in coding in Haskell. You could be someone with experience in another language or someone entirely new to coding.
I'll be teaching using an online IDE, called replit, which serves its purpose great. You can sign-up for free, create a repl, and start following along with the lectures in a few minutes.
Haskell is a functional programming language, primarily used for math, and known to be fast. It's often thought of as being difficult, but you'll find out in this course that it's as easy as pie.
I will be explaining code snippets and there will be a link to the repl that I'm discussing in the lecture resources. You can then fork it, and change the names and arguments in the code to come up with additional examples for each concept.
This course is a beginner-friendly breeze and will allow anyone to effectively grasp the core concepts of Haskell in just a short amount of time.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who knows another programming language and wants to learn the basics of Haskell
ProgLang Main Street is where I teach courses about programming languages. Currently my goal is to focus on the core concepts and syntax of programming languages. Yet, I do secretly have the desire to expand the courses and branch out into different areas.
Perhaps, after I gain enough experience in creating videos, I’ll be ready to take that leap. For now, I'll just be sticking to my guns and taking things one step at a time. I love creating video courses and sharing them here on this site. It's a nice safe place for me to geek out about something. The best thing is the feedback, and engagement I get from students.
