Stack Builders is proud to announce our most recent addition to the development team. Eric Jones is an accomplished Rubyist and Haskeller, and we couldn’t be more excited to have him as part of our growing team which spans New York and South America!
It is amazing to see how kids can have fun and at the same time improve their logical thinking skills by programming. In this post I’m going to talk about my experience teaching kids to program using the necessary tools so that they can become logical thinkers!
SB is proud to present Quito’s first-ever functional programming hackathon. The language-du-jour will be the advanced, purely-functional Haskell programming language. We will have 2 groups - a coding dojo for beginners, and an open-source collaboration for experienced Haskell coders - so bring your laptop & some friends and be prepared to have your mind expanded!
At Stack Builders, we’d like to see Haskell be the language that powers the next generation of dynamic web apps. We open-sourced a library that we wrote for string inflections to help move the language in this direction.
For the last several years Ruby has been the startup and enterprise go-to language for web application development. Why would we want to switch, and is Haskell a good choice for the language to power the next generation of web applications?
Contributing to open-source software is an important part of working at Stack Builders. Recently, 2 junior developers at SB made contributions to a very well-maintained discussion platform called Discourse. Here’s their story, and what our company learned along the way.
