Talk:From a newbie
well, although the page opener hopefully has what s/he came for,... hawiki had pages for newbies! lots! haskellwiki homepage should probably have a link to a "new comer portal".

Do you know about the newsgroup comp.lang.haskell?
I've personally found the community to be very helpful. The documentation can be lacking at times, but the IRC channel and mailing list do make up for the gap a lot. Hopefully the many notes and tutorials scattered throughout the web will flesh out and improve over time. In the meantime, I would recommend moving the discussion to a more appropriate medium, like the Haskell Café mailing list.
In any case, best of luck with Haskell. If you eventually find answers to your questions, you could consider paving the way for future newbies by improving the pre-existing tutorials or writing one of your own. Find your niche! -- kowey 00:54, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
The Orchid Speaks
Well, I got noticed anyway. That's something.
I still have quite a number of unanswered questions - but I think we all agree the wiki isn't a great way to deal with these. Where would be the best place to take this discussion to?
