Advanced Haskell (2 days)

A course for developers who have made their first steps in Haskell and written a few programs, and who now want to unleash the full power of the language.

This course looks behind the scenes of a Haskell programmer and discusses how Haskell is implemented and the compiler works, thereby making it easier to understand the memory requirements and performance of programs. Furthermore, the course introduces libraries for parallelism and concurrency, discusses more advanced patterns for structuring Haskell code such as applicative functors and monad transformers, and explains how more advanced type system features can be employed to capture complex invariants of your code, making programs correct by construction.

This course is designed such that Fast Track to Haskell covers all its prerequisites.

Note that this course is also available as an open-subscription course held in regular intervals at Skills Matter in London.


Day 1

Datatype Internals and Data Structures

Lazy Evaluation and Profiling

Parallelism and Concurrency (if time permits)

Day 2

Monads and More

Type-level Programming


The base price of this course is GBP 3000 (single lecturer) or GBP 4500 (two lecturers). The base price excludes VAT and any other applicable taxes as well as travel costs which depend on the location of the course venue.

We generally recommend two lecturers, as it will allow a better ratio between lecturers and participants during the exercises, and will thereby encourage particpants to ask more questions. We strongly encourage to use two lecturers if there are more than five participants.

We offer on-site consulting in combination with on-site courses at a reduced daily rate.

If you are interested in this course, or for more information, please with as many details as possible.

Why Well-Typed

Our teachers have more than a decade of experience with Haskell, functional programming, compiler design, and related areas. They have been training people at all experience levels, both in academia and in industry.

The insight they brought about how to think in Haskell was great and something that would be very difficult to get from a book or online.
