Bryan O'Sullivan and I are organizing an informal discussion about Haskell in the Real World at this year's CUFP. The discussion will take place in the evening on Thursday 30 September.
Topic: where we as a community should be focusing our efforts over the coming year to continue to improve Haskell as a practical language for day-to-day hacking.
Subjects we expect to cover would include at least the following:
- post-mortem crash analysis and debugging
- improvements to the Cabal build system (e.g. parallel builds)
- performance and documentation improvements for core libraries
- plugging missing functionality holes in the family of packages on hackage
