I’m Michael Snoyman, the founder of the Yesod Web Framework for
Haskell, and maintainer of a number of the Haskell community’s open
source packages. For the past four years, I’ve been working towards
the goal of improving the Haskell toolset to make it ready for
FP Complete’s vision closely matches what I’ve been striving
for, so we have decided to join forces. I am happy to announce that
I am now Lead Software Engineer at FP Complete. Like so many other
developers, I’ve found Haskell to be the most productive and robust
development language I’ve used. I’m excited to be working with a
company which is driving Haskell’s broader adoption.
This move reconfirms my commitment to the Haskell open source
community. FP Complete’s approach includes a very strong
interaction with and support for the community, and I will be
continuing in my role as leader of the Yesod Web Framework, and
expect to have even greater opportunities to contribute back with
the company’s explicit support.
Recent news stories have reminded us that the world urgently
needs a more reliable and productive way to build and maintain
software. Haskell provides exactly the right core technology to
make this happen, and FP Complete is committed to it.
We have a number of very exciting ideas on the table right now,
and are working hard to bring them to fruition. As we make more
developments over the next few months, I’m looking forward to
sharing them with both the existing Haskell community, and giving
the not-yet Haskell community an opportunity to join us.
I’ve waited years for a company to show up that understands the
power and quality of the Haskell community and technology, and that
is as committed to Haskell’s success as I am. That has finally
happened. I’m excited to continue our work together.
