- 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 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 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 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 2018 1 Liner 1HaskellADay Problems and Solutions

- 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

Wednesday's #haskell solution: TFW the exercise is an update function, but the solution goes whole-hog! smh 🙄
- February 6th, 2018: Tuesday's #haskell problem is timestamping packets and associating articles with the packets that downloaded them. Tuesday's #haskell solution: associating the articles we uploaded TODAY with the packet we uploaded TODAY!

### January 2018 1Liner 1HaskellADay problems and solutions

- January 8th, 2018: from Nicoλas @BeRewt

A small @1HaskellADay, old-school. Define foo:

> foo 3 [1..5]

[([1,2,3], 4), ([2,3,4], 5)]

> foo 2 [1..4]

[([1,2], 3), ([2,3], 4)]

> foo 2 [1..20]

[([1,2],3), ([2,3],4), ..., ([18,19],20)]

> foo 20 [1..2]

[] - Demiurge With a Teletype @mrkgrnao

foo n

= tails

# filter (length # (> n))

# map (splitAt n # second head)

(#) = flip (.) - Andreas Källberg @Anka213

I haven't tested it, but this should work:

foo n xs = [ (hd,x) | (hd , x:_) <- n="" splitat=""> tails xs ] - <- n="" splitat="">Nicoλas @BeRewt foo n = zip <$> fmap (take n) . tails <*> drop n
- January 5th, 2018: You have the following DAG-paths:

a -> b -> c -> e

a -> b -> d -> e

q -> r -> s

w -> x

y -> z

and many more.

From a path, provide a bi-directional encoding* given maximum graph depth is, say, 7, max number of roots is, say, 10, and max number of nodes is, say, 1000. - *bi-directional encoding of a graph path:

DAG path -> enc is unique for an unique DAG path

enc -> DAG path yields the same DAG path that created the unique enc.

*DAG: "Directed, acyclic graph." - January 5th, 2018: given s :: Ord k => a -> (k,[v])

define f using s

f :: Ord k => [a] -> Map k [v]

It's great when #haskell has grouping / 'un'grouping functions in the library already.
- January 23rd, 2018: Tuesday's #haskell problem: groups and grouper ... I like grouper blackened, please! Solving today's #haskell problem with Qubits?!? Nah, not really, but that would be cool if we did!

- January 17th, 2018: For today's #haskell problem we use PostgreSQL data store and Haskell to pick up where we left off on an application run. Today's #haskell solution: the audit log has what our program last did, so now we know what we'll work on next!
- January 16th, 2018: Where did yesterday's Haskell problem go? Here it is! Today's #haskell problem: read a packet from a REST endpoint. Today's #haskell solution accesses a REST endpoint with a set timeout and with the default timeout.

- January 10th, 2018: Wednesday's #haskell exercise is to store the packet information into the PostgreSQL database as a part of auditing the ETL process. Wednesday's #haskell solution stores the packets that wrap article sets then logs our results.
- January 9th, 2018: Tuesday's #haskell problem we are logging log messages to the log data table. YES! Tuesday's #haskell solution: logging in the style of log4j.
- January 8th, 2018: Monday's #haskell problem: once more into the breach, and thoughts on generalization – storing unique newspaper article sections in PostgreSQL. We store article section information, then we build a function that stores ANYTHING! ... and washes windows, TOO! *

*YMMV additionaltermsandconditionsmayapplydependingonyourregion - January 5th, 2018: Friday's #haskell problem takes a break from SQL Databases and Haskell and does something completely different: data schemes and Haskell. AHA! Friday's #haskell solution is a graph-view of the sections for a sample of 100 articles.
- January 4th, 2018: Thursday's #haskell problem looks at storing in PostgreSQL authors of periodic articles uniquely identified by uuid. Thursday #haskell solution uses etl function with generators to store parsed authors in PostgreSQL database.

- January 3rd, 2018: Wednesday's #haskell problem is in honor of Baron Munchausen and his fantastic adventures!
- January 2nd, 2018: WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR, HASKELLERS!

Tuesday's #haskell problem leverages keywords-as-subjects and makes storing article keywords into PostgreSQL easier... we hope. Tuesday's #haskell solution Incorporates prior work with memoizing tables and subjects with results.

- December 27th, 2017: In Wednesday's #haskell problem we learn that when you parse dates for your articles, you don't need to carbon-date it anymore. In the solution to yesterday's #haskell problem, we encounter and report some parsing issues around optionality.
