Why Haskell?

Why not Haskell? Too hard? Too slow? Too annoying?

“I don’t know how we would possibly get anything done without Haskell” — Alex

Why Haskell? First commit in 2008 Trader & tools: ±72k lines of Haskell Still some Bash scripts, some Ruby (Not counting external libraries)

Why Haskell?

Types newtype Price = P Int

Why Haskell? Types AveragePrice, FairPrice, KeyPrice, LikelyPrice, Price, StrikePrice, SynPrice...

Why Haskell?

Types Change the type of one function, break the entire build (yay!)

Why Haskell?

Haskell is fast

Why Haskell?

 Haskell is  fast Haskell can be fast

Why Haskell? Haskell can be fast Performance is always measured (even in production) Daily reports of loop times

Why Haskell?

Why Haskell? Some really good libraries aeson, lens, elerea, text, binary, async, statistics, diagrams, criterion... (Some bad ones as well)

Example: parsers

We write a lot of parsers at Tsuru
