Haskell eXchange 2021

Join us for the 10th annual Haskell eXchange, a 3‑day online conference with content selected by developers for developers.

Haskell is an advanced, purely functional programming language.

What began as a research language has evolved into a unique, cutting edge language that is used in industries as diverse as Aerospace, Automative, Healthcare, Finance, Education, Retail, Logistics, SaaS, Online Retail, TV and Music.
