Here's an attempt at explaining the basics of laziness, strictness and unpacking in (GHC) Haskell : http://alpmestan.com/2013/10/02/oh-my-laziness/

Please let me know about any mistake or unclear statement. The article sits in its own repo, PRs or issues welcome: https://github.com/alpmestan/oh-my-laziness

Here's my first article of a series trying to make GHC Core less obscure to haskellers who aren't familiar with it. Let me know if anything's not clear to anyone, or if you spot mistakes (hopefully there shouldn't be too many).

Dear Haskellers,

As some of you may have seen if you have me in one of your circles, I'm working on a webapp where you paste haskell code and get the GHC Core for it in return. This is all going pretty smoothly, except for one thing. 

I must forbid the use of Template Haskell (which allows arbitrary I/O at compile time) and some other nasty extensions (ability to call out to other binaries -- preprocessors and the likes -- among other things). This would be ideal: http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/SafeHaskell/SafeCompilation -- but I haven't seen anything about it in HEAD nor in the last releases.

How would you guys go about doing this?

Thanks for taking some time for a fellow haskeller.

I'm currently working on a web-app where you paste Haskell code and get the GHC Core for it back, and can then share that with a URL.

Here's how it looks for now. I'm downloading and installing the last few versions of GHC to support them all and will then publish the URL so that people will be able to test it and give some feedback. Hope some of you will find some use for this!

The Haskell Implementors Workshop is most likely going to be awesome this year. Hope you guys will record some (all?) of the talks! Just checked out plane ticket & hotel prices, I just won't be able to attend it.

Learning about Finance, Economics, etc. This is stunning/depressing/irrealistic. Interesting, but soooooo fucked up.
