We are happy to announce that we have been sponsoring free webinars for over a year now. The feedback we have been receiving from the IT community has been overwhelmingly positive. We have been working towards producing a new webinar topic every month, and we plan to keep moving at that pace. In this webinar, Michael Snoyman, Vice President of Engineering at FP Complete, discusses how to maximize the "Haskell Success Program". We had 189 people registered for the event which aired on Wednesday, May 1st at 10:00 am PDT.
About the Webinar
In this month's webinar, Michael Snoyman demonstrated just how easy it is to get started with maximizing FP Complete's "Haskell Success Program".
During the webinar we tried to answer these questions:
- Why you should use Haskell
- The benefits of Haskell in a commercial setting
- How you can get your team to adopt more Haskell
- About the training resources we provide online
- How the FP Complete team can help your company succeed with Haskell
Watch the Webinar
We decided to include the chat log for this webinar, and it can be seen at the end of this blog post.

Do You Know FP Complete?
At FP Complete, we do so many things to help companies it's hard to encapsulate our impact in a few words. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so a video has to be worth 10,000 words (at least). Therefore, to tell all we can in as little time as possible, check out our explainer video. It's only 108 seconds to get the full story of FP Complete.
We want your feedback for webinar topics

Webinar Chat Log
We find it useful to share what was chatted about during the webinar. You can see the chat flow below.
00:06:56 Yanik Koval: hey
00:07:08 Chris Done: hey!
00:07:37 Yanik Koval: Will you record this?
00:07:51 Chris Done: yes, it's being recorded
00:08:02 Chris Done: it'll be uploaded to our YouTube channel
00:08:15 Yanik Koval: perfect, thank you
01:09:31 Do you mean 20% of Haskell gives 80% of the benefits? Is that just a type?
01:16:30 Bruce Alspaugh: I see languages like Java have lots of free or inexpensive MOOCs available, but it is hard to find very many on platforms like EdX, Coursera, Linda, etc. but there are very few for Haskell. Is there any effort underway to expand these offerings?
01:19:22 : I have seen some university/academic lecturers giving talks about teaching Haskell via MOOCs, but I'm not aware of commercial initiatives in this area.
01:24:45 Bruce Alspaugh: Do you have any recommendations for how to work with existing local user groups, or establishing new Haskell-oriented user groups to encourage developers to learn Haskell, and companies to start pilot projects?
01:35:13 Bruce Alspaugh: I see languages like Java have lots of free or inexpensive MOOCs available on platforms like EdX, Coursera, Lynda, etc., but there are very few available for Haskell. Is there any effort underway to expand these offerings?
01:39:51 Bruce Alspaugh: Is Haskell on the JVM using Eta or Frege a viable option?
01:41:04 Byron Hale: To All Panelists : My experience with Python is that it's like an elephant in a china-shop when it comes to package management. A carefully curated system will be overwritten without a by-your-leave. Python is the preferred language for machine-learning. What can be done?
01:46:03 Bruce Alspaugh: Does Haskell have good libraries for PDF report generation?
01:47:07 Byron Hale: For example, can Python be added to Nix? Guix?
01:59:21 Dan Banta: Thank you.
01:59:36 Chris Done: Thanks all!!
01:59:53 Bulent Basaran: Thanks You!
