Community

Standing on the shoulders of giants

Our platform is the result of years of work by hundreds of people, all of it openly shared. As individuals and as a company we believe in that spirit of openness. We see it as part of our mission to help make Haskell great. We want to help build and maintain a strong Haskell community and an excellent software development platform.

We try to do this in a number of ways:

  • We have served on, the Haskell language specification committee.
  • We helped set up, and have served on, the haskell.org committee.
  • We co-founded the Industrial Haskell Group.
  • We helped establish the Haskell Platform.
  • Between us we have authored and maintain many open source Haskell libraries and tools.
  • We help maintain core parts of the Haskell ecosystem, including ghc, cabal, and the community infrastructure.
  • We have been involved in the organisation of the series of Haskell Hackathons, which have brought the community together and produced many Haskell libraries.
  • We have mentored students for Haskell.org in the Google Summer of Code program.
