Introduction to Haskell Programming

ABOUT THE COURSE
Functional programming is an elegant, concise and powerful programming paradigm. This style encourages breaking up programming tasks into logical units that can be easily translated into provably correct code. Haskell brings together the best features of functional programming and is increasingly being used in the industry, both for building rapid prototypes and for actual deployment.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
Any one interested in learning this language

PRE-REQUISITES
NIL

INDUSTRIES THAT WILL VALUE THIS
Would be useful in any industry requiring a good understanding of programming, algorithms and data structures.

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR TOP 5% OF THIS COURSE AT HASURA:

Hasura gives developers a platform to build and deploy app backends fast. You can check more out on hasura.io. The core components of the Hasura platform have been written in Haskell. The choice of Haskell has given the Hasura team a significant advantage:
- Haskell has helped us ship quality code faster
- Haskell has helped our team iterate and add/modify features faster
Here's a blog post that we wrote when we were just starting out: http://34cross.in/zero-to-haskell-in-production

Hasura will interview course toppers (top 5% of the students who write the exams) who are interested in a Haskell internship opportunity. Upon completion of the course, the course toppers can submit their resumes and haskell code samples. Hasura will interview some of the candidates and offer internships to those who pass the interview.

COURSE INSTRUCTORS:

Certification Exam

  • The exam is optional for a fee.Exam will be on 26 March 2017.
    Time: Shift 1: 9am-12 noon; Shift 2: 2pm-5pm
  • Registration url: Announcements will be made when the registration form is open for registrations.
  • Final score will be calculated as : 25% assignment score + 75% final exam score.
  • 25% assignment score is calculated as 25% of average of Best 6 out of 8 assignments  

Certificate

  • E-Certificate will be given to those who register and write the exam and score greater than or equal to 40% final score. Certificate will have your name, photograph and the score in the final exam with the breakup. It will have the logos of NPTEL and Indian Institute of Technology. It will be e-verifiable at nptel.ac.in/noc.
