The webinar took a close look at a common problem in Haskell - "How
to Handle Async Exceptions." If you are a true Haskell fan, this is
the webinar to watch to avoid some costly mistakes.
most software developers know many programming languages have
exceptions. To write programs correctly in such languages, you need
to write exception-safe code. This requirement applies to Haskell
as well. However, in Haskell, we have an extra twist: asynchronous
exceptions, which can be thrown to any thread at any
This webinar explores:
- How Exceptions Work in Haskell
- What it means to be "async exception safe,"
- Give practical guidelines—with lots of examples
