Computer Science: Applied Functional Programming

Utrecht University, Graduate School of Natural Sciences

Typed functional programming languages allow for the development of robust, concise programs in a short amount of time. The key advantages are higher-order functions as an abstraction mechanism, and an advanced type system for safety and reusability. This course introduces Haskell, a state-of-the-art functional programming language, together with some of its theoretical background, such as typed lambda calculi, referential transparency, Damas-Milner type inference, and functional design patterns.

We will quickly move on to applications of functional programming, concentrating on topics such as language processing, building graphical user interfaces, networking, databases, and programming for the web. The goal of the course is not only to teach the programming language, but to learn about the Haskell community and to get hands-on experience by developing a project using Haskell in a team.

Advanced bachelors / beginning masters with an interest in writing disciplined, robust programs. Knowledge of functional programming or Haskell in particular may be helpful, but is by no means expected or necessary. All that is required is curiosity and an open mind. Applicants should be proficient in English and will be subjected to a selection procedure. This course is also well-suited as an introduction to or preparation for our MSc program Software Technology.

Participants will be given the opportunity to learn a modern and new programming paradigm. The acquired knowledge will not only enable participants to lead or contribute to programming projects that make use of Haskell or related languages – it will also enable them to write better programs in any programming language, as the patterns and abstractions being taught are widely applicable.
