Introductions to Haskell

Part 1 (Download) (On YouTube)
Part 2 (Download) (On YouTube)
Simon Peyton-Jones, OSCON, July 2007.

Haskell is the world's leading purely functional programming language that offers a radical and elegant attack on the whole business of writing programs. In the last two or three years there has been an explosion of interest in Haskell, and it is now being used for a bewildering variety of applications. In this tutorial, I will try to show you why programming in Haskell is such fun, and how it makes you think about programming in a new way.
