We recently had the chance to speak with ... - Deepstash

We recently had the chance to speak with Alexander Granin , who is a software architect, international speaker, researcher and active member of the C++ and Haskell communities about his upcoming book Functional Design and Architecture and the evolution of Haskell in the past decade.

MORE IDEAS FROM Functional Design and Architecture: Interview with Alexander Granin

Haskell in this book is a model language, but we’re making the first two parts of the book approachable to all functional developers. A basic and intermediate Haskell will be needed in further, still, the book contains a lot of ideas universally applicable to Scala, F#, Elm, OCaml, PureScript. I believe the book will be useful to senior software engineers and software architects having a certain FP background, but maybe my book is more than that. My hope is that it becomes a must-have book for many developers from many stacks.

Learning Haskell was a great idea long ago since Haskell 2010 was established. Haskell gives a completely different perspective on writing the code, and this makes you a better developer. But if this is not convincing enough, then I would say that ideas from Haskell leak into all the main languages: Scala, C++, C#, JavaScript, Java, Kotlin, Rust. Not metaphorically, but literally; for example, C++20 has concepts - a direct adoption of Haskell’s type classes.

There was something that I realized quite soon. Haskell is an amazing, very influential, and even meme language that offers really breakthrough concepts. However, it turned out that we don’t have an understanding of how to build real programs, how to apply those ideas to everyday tasks, and what software engineering in Haskell looks like. I started researching this topic. I was the first with this intent in Haskell, so I decided to write a book that I knew will say its word in the industry sooner or later.

My IT career started more than 15 years ago. I was a C++ developer for most of my professional path. But my true passion was functional programming. I fell in love with Haskell 10 years ago, and it was my favorite hobby language until I moved to the position of Haskell consultant 4 years ago. I started investigating functional programming in Haskell and C++, and I found a big world of new great ideas. I was writing articles, giving talks, and my goal was to popularize functional programming among developers.

We know much about object-oriented programming. There are design patterns, design principles, software architectures, and ready solutions - all this forms a complete story of software design in OOP languages. But we don’t have anything equal in functional programming. There were takes on this or that for sure, but nothing that comprehensive and systematic. Authors do their best to observe separate techniques and ideas, but there is no complete story of what approaches we have in functional programming and how to apply them for real tasks

Students are set up to fail

The growing popularity of coding has led to an increase in coding schools and online boot camps. The schools are designed to produce students who have a working knowledge of software development and are ideally hireable.

But this crash-course approach doesn't necessarily equip aspiring developers with the skills or experience they need. Universities and software certificate programs also don't teach the skills employers value and expect.
