So I will indeed be talking about Snap. I actually concocted a grandiose
"The web problem, and solving it in Haskell"
which is motivated by the the conversation we had last month. So, in
Is functional programming a good place to do web applications?
Hard to say. The trick is to know why the web problem is a mess,
how different frameworks approach solving it, and realize the
trade-offs you make when choosing one. We'll look at Snap, its
templating engine, Heist, and the functional layer on top,
Not sure how far I'll get into Snaplets given the time we have, but I
can at least discuss the motivations behind them, as best I understand
it at this point.
