This is the Haskell Interlude, where the five co-hosts (Wouter Swierstra, Andres Löh, Alejandro Serrano, Niki Vazou, and Joachim Breitner) chat with Haskell guests!

    08: Théophile Choutri

    08: Théophile Choutri

    Niki Vazou and Andres Löh are joined by guest Théophile Choutri (they/them), who also goes by Hécate. Théophile coordinates multiple projects and volunteer groups within the Haskell Foundation, notably the Haskell School project (intending to provide a free online open source library for teaching Haskell), and works on improving GHC core documentation and developing an alternative to Hackage. Together they discuss Théophile's introduction to Haskell and their ongoing projects with the Foundation and the broader community, with a focus on the challenges facing Haskell non-experts and how they hope to tackle them.

    07: José Calderón

    07: José Calderón

    José Calderón  is interviewed by Niki Vazou and Wouter Swierstra .  José has been working on functional programming at Galois and University of Maryland.  He tells us about his research background in many different continents, his experience with teaching compilers, the relation between music and functional programming and the "Recursive Programming Techniques" book that in the  1970s captured the essence of functional programming.

    06: Graham Hutton

    06: Graham Hutton

    Graham Hutton is interviewed by Wouter Swierstra and Andres Löh. Graham is known for his work on Haskell both in research and teaching Haskell, and in particular his Haskell book. Graham will tell us a little bit about how his book came about and give us advice for how to write a book ourselves, but also look back on his experience using Haskell and teaching Haskell in the last thirty years, and tell us a little bit about how bad the compile times were for the very first versions of GHC.

    05: Chris Smith

    Chris Smith is interviewed by Joachim Breitner and Andres Löh. Chris is the author of the CodeWorld teaching tool and discusses why too much curry in the language can make error messages hard to digest and why a self respecting testing library certainly should be used to test itself.

    04: Jasper Van der Jeugt

    04: Jasper Van der Jeugt

    Jasper Van der Jeug is interviewed by Niki Vazou and Joachim Breitner. Jasper plays an important role in the Haskell community, helping with haskell.org, the Google Summer of Code project, ZuriHac and the ICPF programming contest, so there is much to talk about.

    03: Gabriella Gonzalez

    03: Gabriella Gonzalez

    The guest in our second episode is Gabriella Gonzalez. The hosts are Joachim Breitner and Alejandro Serrano. We talk about Dhall, Nix, and Haskell, learn why Gabriella's packages are sometimes called after characters of computer games, and get to know her elevator pitch for educating Haskell. The interviewee now goes by Gabriella as their preferred name, but at the time was still using Gabriel.
