The Haskell Application Server
Room: BBL room 471
Speaker: Eelco Lempsink
The Haskell Application Server (HAppS, http://happs.org
) is a web framework
for writing server applications. If that sounds too vague for you, imagine
doing backend web programming with Haskell.
A unique feature of HAppS that it offers a novel way to manage persistent
state in a purely Haskell way, without the need to use a DBMS-system, with
You might have looked at HAppS before, but since it only started to
stabilize the last half year or so, it might be worth a look again.
I will give a demo of a small HAppS application (the start of a wiki), and
show lots of actual code, right down to the 'inside' of HAppS, so you'll
see how it really works.
