Remembering Paul Hudak

Remembering Paul Hudak | Rancher Labs.

Renowned computer scientist Paul Hudak, one of the designers of the Haskell programming language, died of leukemia this week. There’s been an outpouring of reactions from people Paul’s life and work has touched.  Paul was my Ph.D. adviser at Yale in the 1990s. He supervised my work, paid for my education, and created an environment that enabled me to learn from some of the brightest minds in the world.

Paul was an influential figure in the advancement of functional programming. Functional programming advocates a declarative style, as opposed to procedural or imperative style, of programming… In many cases, the declarative style is easier to understand and more elegant. Because the declarative style focuses on what, rather than how to perform the computation, it enables programmers to worry less about implementation details and gives compilers more freedom to produce optimized code.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
