Why use Haskell for building production software systems

Haskell is our first choice when building new software systems. Based on our experience, Haskell is the best programming language available for many software projects. Below we’ve published some in-depth accounts of our experience using it and why we think you should consider doing so as well.

Why You Should Consider Haskell for Your Next Production System

November 2021 Talk from the Haskell Exchange conference

Haskell is a top choice for building production software systems. While Haskell does have a large surface area, with many concepts and syntax that will feel unfamiliar to programmers coming from other languages, it is unrivaled in its combination of developer productivity, code maintainability, software reliability, and performance.

In this talk Christian Charukiewicz, Partner at Foxhound Systems, covers some of the defining features of Haskell that make it an excellent, industrial-strength language that is well-suited for building commercial software. You’ll learn why the team at Foxhound Systems considers it a first choice for new projects, and why you should too.

This talk was recorded on November 15, 2021 at the Haskell eXchange virtual conference.
