Students will significantly extend their knowledge of functional programming. At the end of the course, they should be able to solve non-trivial programming problems using Haskell and to be familiar with practical use of this functional language.
The student who finshes this course will be able to:
- write a Haskell program with approximatelly 100 to 200 lines;
- perform analysis and functional decompisition of given problem;
- use supportive tools for Haskell developers such as the Cabal package manager, the Hackage package repository, the HLint linter, and the QuickCheck testing framework;
- describe theoretical functional concepts;
- have an idea about some more advanced functional techniques used in practice.
Advanced syntax, modules, custom type classes, advanced data structures.
Package system (Hackage/Stackage), support tools (cabal, HLint, Haddock).
Functors, applicative functors, monads.
Automatic generation of tests according to program specification (QuickCheck).
Input and output in Haskell, processing errors and exceptions (Maybe, Either, exceptions, error states).
Monoids, processing of command line options.
Evaluation strategies (laziness vs. strictness).
Context-aware traversal of data structures (Zippers, Lens).
Monadic parsing (Parsec).
Monads for shared writing, shared reading and keeping the state (Writer, Reader, State).
Monad transformers (MaybeT, ErrorT).
Processing strings and other useful GHC extensions.
Haskell in real world projects.

The course is organized as a series of two-hour seminars wherein topics of application functional programming in practice are presented to students. Apart from that, it is requested to solve four homework assignments regarding the discussed subjects (implementation + peer-review).
In order to successful completion of the course, it is necessary to obtain enough points from homework assignments. The attendance of seminars is not compulsory, but highly recommended.
