Parallel and Concurrent Programming in Haskell

Marlow walks you through the process with lots of code examples that you can run experiment with and extend Divided into separate sections on Parallel and Concurrent Haskell this book also includes exercises to help you become familiar with the concepts presentedExpress parallelism in Haskell with the Eval monad and Evaluation StrategiesParallelize ordinary Haskell code wit A large portion of the book is basically how to use library X which in itself isn t too interesting

If you have a working knowledge of Haskell this hands on book shows you how to use the language’s many APIs and frameworks for writing both parallel and concurrent programs You’ll learn how parallelism exploits multicore processors to speed up computation heavy programs and how concurrency enables you to write programs with threads for multiple interactionsAuthor Simon This book sold me on Haskell for large systems development Haskell s approach to parallelism sparks evaluation strategies Repa Accelerate and its approach to concurrency forkIO async etc is nothing short of elegant Simon Marlow captures that elegance in this book and shows you how to harness that powerI also appreciate the organization of this book The first chapter gives one of the best explanations of lazy evaluation I ve seen to day as well as the potential gotchas of that laziness that you ll likely encounter in parallel settingsGreat advice and great organization Highly recommended

    One of the best technical books I've read Simple language with a lot of details about parallelconcurrent primitives Gives you a good understanding of exceptions and async exceptionsThe only drawback is little bit boring real world examples that sometimes involve trying to understand its inner complexity instead of illustrating specific approa

    A very decent book on not only concurrency in Haskell but concurrency in general Must read for all Haskell folk

    Absolutely amazing book that every Haskell developer should read

    I really like real life examples
