It is not always clear how to scale up from small "batch oriented" Haskell applications to large scale "Real World/Enterprise" Haskell systems. In other words, how to create large-scale systems that support complex business processes, information flows, reporting, data analytics etc. using Haskell.

The following articles show a number of different ways to attack this problem.

Event Driven Applications

An event driven application/system is here defined to be an application/system that reacts to external events.

Examples would be:

  • A text editor that reacts to user events (key pressed, mouse moved).
  • A web server reacting to IO events (message arrived, image compression done).
  • A commercial game reacting to simulated physics events and user input.
  • A report ready for distribution.
  • A loan application having been accepted.
