- May 31st, 2018: In Thursday's #haskell problem we are analyzing JSON so we can produce ... MORE JSON! And thus grows our Big Data. Thursday's #haskell solution shows us the results of Big Data analytics? More Big Data. YES!
- May 30th, 2018: Wednesday's #haskell problem we process 'big-ish' data. Wednesday's #haskell solution: You take your big(-ish) data, and you chart it. THIS WE CALL DATA SCIENCE!
- May 25th, 2018: Friday's #haskell problem is load testing a web application with a database pull. Friday's #haskell solution: a load-tester in Haskell! AHA! 😎
- May 24th, 2018: Thursday's #haskell exercise is adding articles to be cleaned up, post-ETL, to a dirty table in PostgreSQL. Thursday's #haskell solution stages articles loaded into the database to be cleaned up later.
- May 21st, 2018: Monday's #haskell problem is to insert NEW (triaged) articles into a PostgreSQL database.
- May 18th, 2018: Friday's #haskell exercise: there seems to be a lot of tagged terms for articles. Download these terms-as-JSON from a REST endpoint and count them is today's exercise. Friday's #haskell solution has got me singing "Havana-na-na-na!" ... no, wait: I meant: "uploading tags from a REST endpoint to a PostgreSQL database." That's what I meant.
- May 17th, 2018: Thursday's #haskell exercise is to add database update functionality to existing code and in a Writer/IO monad; yikes! Thursday's #haskell solution: from the triaged articles, the update SQL statements naturally fall out.
- May 11th, 2018: Friday's #haskell exercise: bridging Python and Haskell to deliver a polyglot system.
- May 8th, 2018: Tuesday's #haskell problem uses articles fetched from a REST endpoint and article metadata to triage articles for daily upload to a PostgreSQL database. Tuesday's #haskell solution... triage: get!
- May 7th, 2018: Monday's #haskell problem is extracting metadata for articles stored in a PostgreSQL database. Monday's #haskell solution repurposes a library to fetch article metadata from a new article database.
- May 4th, 2018: For Friday's #haskell problem we look at a daily upload process from a REST endpoint to a SQL data store and start to implement it. Friday's #haskell solution gets a week's worth of data from the REST endpoint.

- April 25th, 2018: For Wednesday's #haskell problem we prove, definitively, @fermatslibrary n^5 is n ... for very small n. For Wednesday's #haskell solution we learn that number theory is so cool!
- April 24th, 2018: For Tuesday's #haskell problem we look for a fix-point of simplifying HTML. Good thing it's not NP-hard! ... no ... wait. Tuesday's #haskell solution is the fix-point for HTML. Just like the fix-point for factorial. Structurally, maybe, but otherwise, kinda not.
- April 23rd, 2018: What happens when things go wrong? We start to look at debugging for Monday's #haskell problem. For Monday's #haskell solution: the error is not here; the error is in another castle.
- April 20th, 2018: Friday's #haskell problem is to decode HTML entities from titles of articles. Friday's #haskell solution: deHTMLification: get
- April 18th, 2018: Hey! Let's store the raw JSON as a fall-back should our ETL process fail for Wednesday's #haskell problem. Wednesday's #Haskell solution: storing raw JSON in a SQL data store BECAUSE WE CAN!
- April 17th, 2018: For Tuesday's #haskell problem we upload articles from a different publisher of a compressed JSON archive with a different format. We find adding a differently-structured set of articles to IxArt store is simple for Tuesday's #haskell solution.
- April 16th, 2018: For Monday's #haskell problem, we take articles-as-json from various sources and put them into a common SQL data store. For Monday's #haskell solution we upload articles from different publications to a common SQL data store, both compressed and uncompressed archives.
- April 13th, 2018: Friday's #haskell problem is to grab packets of articles from a REST endpoint for later processing. Friday's #haskell solution: Those are some rather large packets downloaded from the REST endpoint!
- April 12th, 2018: Thursday's #haskell problem: auditing and logs. Thursday's #haskell solution is to wrap packet extraction and insertion in an ETL process.
- April 11th, 2018: Wednesday's #haskell problem: when we download packets of articles, let's record that event. Wednesday's #haskell solution: we're inserting packets into our new database.
- April 10th, 2018: Tuesday's #haskell problem: 🎵 "Does anybody know what time it is?" 🎶 (bonus: name that tune) Tuesday's #haskell solution: "Hey, Mister! You got the time?"
- April 9th, 2018: Monday's #haskell problem is to extract article tags from JSON then store them in a PostgreSQL lookup table. Monday's #haskell solution: Inserting tags for articles into a PostgreSQL database is a breeze!
- April 6th, 2018: Friday's #haskell problem is to parse categories-as-JSON, strip it down to its essentials, and store in a PostgreSQL data table. Friday's #haskell solution uploaded categories to a PostgreSQL databse after 'removing the stupid.' That's a technical term.
- April 5th, 2018: Thursday's #haskell problem is revising the database connector now that we're managing multiple databasen. Thursday #haskell solution is making connections to SQL databases configurable. Whoa. Edgy, tweeps! I'm really pressing the bleeding edge of technological advancement here with configurations and database connections.
- April 4th, 2018: Wednesday's #haskell problem is storing authors in a PostgreSQL table. Wednesday's #haskell solution shows that transferring authors from articles to a SQL database is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- April 3rd, 2018: Tuesday's #haskell exercise: AUTHOR! AUTHOR! Is there an author in the house? Tuesday's #haskell solution: extracting author information from very unstructured data.
- April 2nd, 2018: Monday's #haskell problem is to explore JSON to find the structure in the data. Monday's #haskell solution: oooh! Pritteh JSON! But what's this weirdness with the author-identifier?

- February 8th, 2018: We have maybe :: b -> (a -> b) -> Maybe a -> b. But we don't have list? Or do we? Define list:
list :: b -> ([a] -> b) -> [a] -> b
list nullanswer flist lst = undefined
- BONUS: Both Maybe a and [a] are binary types, ... so is MonadPlus:
Maybe a = Nothing | Just a
List a = Cons a (List a) | Nil
MonadPlus m => mzero | m a `mplus` m a
Is there some generalization that maybe and list are functions of? What is that generalization?
- February 6th, 2018:
You have f :: a -> [b] -> [c]
But instead of just one a you have [a]
Define g :: [a] -> [b] -> [c]
in terms of f
- Daniel @leptonyu g as bs = foldl (\xs a -> f a bs ++ xs)  as
- ptdr_bot @m0rth0n g as bs = flip f bs =<< as
- Victoria C @ToriconPrime g as bs = concat $ fmap ($ bs) (fmap f as)
- matt @themattchan g = flip $ concatMap . flip f
- Nicoλas @BeRewt g = flip (flip (>>=) . flip f) Or: g as bs = as >>= flip f bs
- Sangeet Kar @sangeet_kar g = foldMap f

- March 14th, 2018: Wednesday #haskell problem I am thinking about sumaSumasCuadradosDivisores from the Haskell community via @Jose_A_Alonso
- March 12th, 2018: Monday's #haskell problem is Improving Tarski's logic language with curried functions.
- March 8th, 2018: For Thursday's #haskell problem, thanks to @wtfunctional, we'll play with Other People's Code! ... and Mandelbrot sets.
- March 6th, 2018: Tuesday's #haskell exercise asks the eternal question: "Are you my mom?"... and also looks at curried functions in a logic framework... which is nice. Last Tuesday's #haskell solution ended in pathos: I know 'momOf', but I cannot answer, 'are you my mom?' Can you not feel the sads?
- March 5th, 2018: Monday's #haskell problem is a little "Introduction to Logic" by Tarski to start our week of right. I went a little 'forall' in the #haskell solution today. Sorry. #notsorry
