The heartbleed bug and FP Haskell Center

The heartbleed bug and FP Haskell Center If you haven’t heard about the heartbleed bug and related security issues, this article provides a good explanation. Applications developed in FPHC and deployed using the FP Application servers are not vulnerable to this bug. Services we use from Amazon and GitHub were affected. SSL connections to our […]

Calculating the Minimum Variance Portfolio in R, Pandas and IAP

As part of producing a demo for FP Complete’s new IAP product, I wound up implementing the Minimum Variance Portfolio calculation for a stock portfolio in R, then in Haskell for the IAP, and finally in Python using the NumPy and SciPy extension libraries. I want to look at the process of writing each of […]

Monte carlo analysis in Haskell

A common analytic task is the monte carlo simulation. This involves sampling large numbers of random values in order to come to some kind of conclusion. Random numbers are often thought of as a weak point in purely functional languages. In a purely functional language like Haskell, we keep a strict separation between pure and […]

The State of Stackage

Almost a full year ago, I made the first commit into the Stackage repository, and the announcement blog post describes the project’s motivations. Since then, as part of our work at FP Complete, there’s been a lot of activity on this project. The community contributions have been amazing as well, with a huge number of […]

August Competition Winners

Two Runner-Up Winners Announced for August Competition We received some very promising submissions in August. Here are our two runner-up winners who earned $500 each.

Snap, Happstack and anything else

One of our primary goals when designing the School of Haskell was making it convenient to write up tutorials on web development. As I’m sure many people can guess, I personally think that web development is an important domain to give proper coverage to. And for those of you on our beta program, you’ve probably […]
