  • Course Haskell Programming : Content

    In the course Haskell Programming participants learn to program in the pure functional programming language Haskell. Unlike conventional languages ​​such as C and Java, functional languages ​​perform calculations by combining separate mathematical functions. A functional language like Haskell also naturally has support for multithreading and parallelism, which results in good performance.

    Haskell Intro

    The course starts with an introduction to the basic syntax of Haskell and the main characteristics of the language such as laziness in expression evaluation with a thunk data structure, static typing, modularity and dealing with multiple threads.

    Data Types and Operators

    Next attention is paid to the data types and operators of the language. Data structures such as lists, tuples and records are also discussed. And exceptions and accessing the file system are also treated.


    Part of the program of the course are the definition and declaration of functions in Haskell with argument lists, pattern matching and guards. Recursive functions, higher order functions and lambda expressions are discussed as well.


    Then the various Haskell modules such as the Prelude, List, Char, Set and Map module are reviewed. And it is explained how user defined modules and packages are created. This also includes the discussion of qualified imports and the global namespace.

    Haskell Containers

    Finally attention is paid to Haskell containers such as classes, objects, Trees, Binary Trees, Functors and Foldables and the characteristic functional programming concept of monads.

    Audience Haskell Programming

    The course Haskell Programming course is intended for anyone who wants to learn programming in the functional programming language Haskell.

    Prerequisites Course Haskell Programming

    In order to participate in this course basic knowledge of programming in another programming language is beneficial to understanding, but is not required.

    Realization Training Haskell Programming

    The theory is discussed on the basis of presentation slides. The theory is further explained through demos. After discussing a module, there is the possibility to practice. Course times are from 9.30 to 16.30.

    Course Certification Haskell Programming

    After successful completion of the course, the participants receive an official certificate Haskell Programming.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.

It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
