Haskell Foundation May Update
The proposal was accepted! Bodigrim and Emily Pillmore did a fantastic job specifying the work and responding to enthusiastic feedback. Thank you to all the reviewers and commenters for helping, and we look forward to progress updates.
We are excited to announce that Chris Dornan has volunteered to take the project lead role in conjunction with Julian Ospald (the author of ghcup), and will be working with members of the community to create a proposal.
We have officially signed a contract with Well-Typed to continue support of GHC development. HF has taken over this relationship from Microsoft Research, and GitHub stepped up with a sizable earmarked donation. Thank you to GitHub, and thank you to Well-Typed.
Affiliations and Alliances
We <3 Haskell Love, and are so happy to affiliate with them! Their next conference is on September 10th, so show them some Love. Maybe you’d like to submit a talk?
Do you love hacking in Haskell? ZuriHac 2021 will be a virtual event June 18th - June 20th, and our own CTO Emily Pillmore will be speaking, along with John Hughes, Veronika Romashkina, Sandy Maguire, and Ollie Charles. We’re excited, and so happy to affiliate with such a great event.
The Integrated Haskell Platform open source project has affiliated! We are excited to have this Haskell web framework aboard, and the new Haskellers it is bringing into the community.
A platform for open-source contributors to discover Haskell projects to get involved with! From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs.
Shout-out to Jonathan Lorimer for his work on the project!
The HF website is Hakyll-based, although not currently using much of that functionality. We would love for it to be more data-driven, and of course stylish. Additionally, members of community file issues that may need to be addressed. Better workflow and staging? Yes, please!
We are in the early days for our Community Task Force, and are looking for people interested in being community managers and moderators. Our goal is to focus on communication, mediation, and conflict resolution, to make our community open, welcoming, and respectful.
Cabal is under new maintainership, and things are moving forward! This foundational piece of Haskell tech needs love, modernization, and some deep problem solving skills.
Help keep Haskage packages working!
Thank you to our sponsors, you make the HF possible.
