David Thrane Christiansen posted the February 2023 Foundation update in our community’s Discourse instance.
In this episode Wouter Swierstra and Joachim Breitner chat with Ben Gamari. Ben is a consultant at Well-Typed known for his work at GHC. Ben tells us a little bit about his switch from Python to Haskell but not because he was missing the static typing, how programming his thermostat lead him to a career in the compiler development, and what it’s like to be a GHC force multiplier.

Watch Simon Peyton Jones announce the Haskell Foundation at the Haskell eXchange conference on November 4, 2020.
In this keynote, Simon talks about the Haskell Foundation's launch and its goals. At the end, he is joined by a panel of HF volunteers to take questions from the audience.
Haskell embodies a radical and elegant attack on the entire enterprise of writing software. It profoundly influences the world of software for the better.
Ideas that guide our every decision
Haskell’s design puts principle ahead of expediency by cleaving closely to the principles of purely functional programming.
All Haskell Foundation efforts are open source.
HF augments, celebrates, and coordinates the contributions and leadership of Haskell’s vibrant community.
For many, Haskell is more a way of life than a programming language. All are welcome, all can contribute. To this end we have adopted the Haskell Guidelines For Respectful Communication.
All technical decisions related to HF’s open source projects are proposed and debated in public.
The Haskell Foundation category in the Haskell Discourse is where we make official announcements, and have discussions with the community.
Official communication channel for HF Board members, the archive is publicly available.
