Look up some of his presentations on YouTube Michael rated it it was amazing Mar 17, Language-agnostic to the extent that most code can be easily translated to most modern functional programming languages.
However, the use of explicit partial computations and lazy evaluation makes it harder to follow examples, and complicates the program cost model and proofs by structural induction. Related to this I have seen interviews with Eric Meijer where he talked about preferring the first edition of this book because is was more conceptual awdler not Haskell specific. Read the first edition, since subsequent editions are intrpduction more in the “programming language overview” style.
Hardcoverpages. Lots of rigorous proofs and great discussion of things like strictness and bottom values. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. As a strong point, the technique of program specification and derivation by inverse functions is elegantly described, easily mechanized, and of lasting value.
Jobaer Chowdhury rated it it was amazing Apr 15, Bird and Wadler ibrd ed. On the other hand the implications of Monadic computations are far-reaching.

The point this book functionaal is that progressing throug For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell. The second edition uses the popular language Haskell to express functional programs.
Still a good book. Lists with This Book.

The four instead of five stars is because, unfor I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory. For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell. That said, SICP is a comprehensive overview of the essence of computer science narrated using Scheme and functional brid, while Bird funcctional Wadler is a tutorial in functional abstractions and type-directed programming through Miranda, a precursor to Haskell.
I probably should read it again but If I recall well Monads and Lenses were not explicitly explained in book or course.
Introduction to Functional Programming
There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract datatypes in a functional setting, and programming in a monadic style. I think I should have read it better in What was great about the treatment was that each new concept was introduced with little fanfare.
Sep 09, Hans rated it really liked it. Edzo rated it it was amazing Jul 02, Must do a quick reread.
All in all, it is an excellent book with which to hone theory, and for that I can’t recommend it enough. Open Preview See a Problem?

In I met Philip Wadler, one of the authors, on the Joy of Coding conference where he kindly signed my copy of this book. Eduardo rated it really liked it Jul 13, The point this book makes is that progressing through a well-formulated pedagogy one can absorb Monads as easily as one can absorb Sets.
Read the first e Bird and Wadler 1st ed. This all said, this is a great book on functional programming and Haskell. And Miranda although outdated can still be run if you have something that run [1st Edition]Was a freshman year textbook used fir introducing Functional Programming at the Computer Science department at the University of Twente in Refresh and try again.
In the popular literature about Haskell a lot of digital ink is spilled over Monads, but really they’re no big deal conceptually. I have started reading the first book as a PDF and can see his point. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The book is self-contained, assuming no prior knowledge of programming and is suitable as an introductory undergraduate text for first- or second-year students.
