Well fuck me. Just went to my first meetUp with a group of Haskell programmers.

I think they broke Enigma in 3 lines of code.

Serious shit.

Hats off to those guys!

    But how long where the three lines? Lines in Haskell can get pretty long.

    @eksdee4 Code stats people don't care about the length of lines of code, just the number of lines of code. They forget that code has multiple dimensions.

    Sorry to disappoint.... It was just a metaphor.

    But there were probably 20 lines of code and infinite fucking about to manage dependencies.

    Apparently dependencies in Haskell sucks!

    for comparison how many lines are needed in Java Script? 😄

    Alan Turing must be proud.

    @nzeetee Cabal is well named, it's a good way to end up in hell.

    Things got a bit better with stack... But still, the truth is that package management is a hard problem. (Read this: https://medium.com/@sdboyer/...)

    And what happens when you throw Haskell devs an unsolvable problem? They won't interpret it dynamically... They just label it unsolvable, throw a type error, respond with _|_, and they'll go on philosophizing about category theory while drinking whiskey in front of their fireplaces.
