Combinatorrent - Writing Haskell Code for Fun and Profit



Jesper Louis Andersen presents a case study of a BitTorrent client written in Haskell based on reusable patterns, drawing conclusions on what is great and not so great in Haskell and comparing it with a similar Erlang client.


Jesper Louis Andersen is a Danish programming language geek who is now heading up the Erlang Solutions Copenhagen office. He is the principal programmer and leader of two open source projects, implementing the BitTorrent Peer-to-peer content distribution protocol in Haskell and Erlang respectively.
