FP Complete Launches Haskell in Real World Competition with $1,000
Cash Prize Each Month
I’m very excited to announce our Haskell in Real World contest:
a call out for sample Haskell code and tutorials of real-world
engineering and business solutions. Each entry consists of a
working solution to an applied problem, plus accompanying tutorial
material to teach others how to build similar programs.
The winning entry each month will get $1,000 cash prize. There
may be multiple prizes each month or none at all if none meet the
winning criteria. There are no limits on how many prizes each
individual, team or group can win in any month or the duration of
the contest. In other words, you can make some serious play money
here! Anyone not affiliated with FP Complete is eligible to
Why are we doing this? Simple: because the Haskell community
needs to vastly expand for Haskell to become a mainstream language.
To do this we must show people how to use this amazing language in
solving real-world business problems. People tell us they need to
see running and documented examples of real-world problems and
solutions, so they can quickly see how to design their own working
solutions. They also want material to show their colleagues and
bosses just how useful Haskell is today. In essence this contest
intends to compile recipes which, taken together, could be seen as
an applied Haskell cookbook.
The competition starts in July. Official Rules and sign-ups will
be published on our website www.fpcomplete.com at the end of June /
early July. So check back then and let the games begin!
