Overview

Learn how to use and integrate all the components needed to run a web service in Haskell. Diving in a bit further, this course teaches you how to integrate different Haskell libraries in order to create a working application.

Servant for routing, Aeson for JSON manipulation, Persistent for database access, Validation for input validation.

Prerequisites

  • Familiarity with the Basic concepts of Haskell: ADTs, pattern matching, and types.
