Haskell for madmen

If you spot a mistake, grammar error or unclear passage, please please open an issue or make a merge request over on my gitlab repository and help me make this tutorial better.

Introduction

There appears to be some interest in a Haskell tutorial that does not take things slowly, but rather dives right into creating a real-world application, specifically a webserver. In order to do this though, we will need to use monads right from the get-go, and monads are traditionally considered hard.

So I decided to write the tutorial I wished I had in university. It explains the why, not just the how, and it goes pretty bat-shit fast. No taking it slow with the repl here. This tutorial holds you hand, but speeds on the highway while doing so.

And so this tutorial is born: Haskell for madmen.

This tutorial works best with Firefox, as some formulas are written in MathML, but you should be able to make do without them.
