On this introductory course, you will discover the power, elegance and simplicity of functional programming in Haskell. By the end, you will be able to:

– characterise the differences between imperative and functional programming paradigms;

– implement small-scale functional programs in elementary Haskell;

– apply standard combinators for operating on lists;

– create new algebraic data types and use recursion to define functions that traverse recursive types; and reason in a mathematical manner about data types, functions, recursion and similar functional constructs.
