Haskell and the Arts

Posted by Paul Hudak  on  Jul 06, 2009 1

Paul Hudak explores the question whether the elegance of functional programming is a good match for the aesthetics of art? Is it possible that artists could benefit from using functional languages in their work? In addition to the creative process, can functional languages assist artists in other ways? We will explore many of these issues in the context of the visual, musical, and performing arts.
