Join Alejandro Serrano and Flavio Corpa from 47 Degrees for the Haskell Symposium 2020 taking place August 27th and 28th. This year’s Symposium will be co-located with the virtual 2020 International Conference on Functional Programming.
Putting newer Haskell extensions to work within Mu
We present Mu, a domain specific language to describe and develop microservices in Haskell. At its core, Mu provides a type level representation of schemas, which we leverage in various ways. These schemas can be automatically imported from industry-standard interface definition languages.
Mu uses many of the type level extensions to GHC, and techniques such as (data type) generic programming and attribute grammars. Apart from the description of the library, we discuss a series of shortcomings in current GHC/Haskell, mostly related to the friendliness of the exposed library interface once complex types enter the scene.
Register for the virtual Haskell Symposium 2020 on the ICFP 2020 website.
