Agreed! I particularly like it for anything that needs to be maintained simultaneously in multiple formats. For example, it's nice to have a resume in plaintext, PDF, and HTML and to keep all three up to date without making edits to multiple source files. #pandoc is perfect for that.
(Not that I have an up-to-date resume at the moment, but that's a different issue!)
@crodges @codesections Depends on what you want to do. For web applications we are using yesod and servant, the former feels quite familiar if you know common web frameworks and it has a good book. https://www.yesodweb.com/book As for learning #haskell nothing beats writing a lot of code. I've started when there were few books available so I can't recommend a specific one.
@mrtn @alios @crodges @codesections It has a lot of issues. You can read through the whole thing and in the end still have no clue how to write an actual application in Haskell. It surely explains some of the concepts (Monads, applicatives etc), but not to an extent where you become familiar with the language. Lots have read it and failed when actually starting a project. At least that's what people told me.
