FLOSS Weekly 236


Yesod is a Haskell web framework for productive development of type-safe, RESTful, high performance web applications.
Records live every Tuesday at 11:00am Eastern / 8:00am Pacific / 16:00 UTC.
Yesod believes in the philosophy of making the compiler your ally, not your enemy. We use the type system to enforce as much as possible, from generating proper links, to avoiding XSS attacks, to dealing with character encoding issues. In general, if your code compiles, it works. And instead of declaring types everywhere you let the compiler figure them out for you with type inference. Hosts: Randal Schwartz and Simon Phipps Guest: Michael Snoyman.
