About the Course

The aim of the course is to explore the powerful mechanisms that functional programming languages offer to solve real problems and structure larger programs. The focus lies on library design and the concept of embedded languages. The programming language used in the course is Haskell ( Concrete concepts that are taught in the course: • The use of advanced type system features, such as type classes and generalized algebraic datatypes • Design and implementation techniques for embedded languages • Monads and monad transformers • Parser and pretty printing combinators • GUI programming techniques Examples of concrete real-life applications of the above are also part of the course.
