“What FP Complete offers overall: tutorials, in-browser ability to write and compile against examples, the aim of the IDE, etc., is spectacular.”
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
FP Complete, the leading developer of commercial Haskell software tools and services, announced today the launch of FP Haskell Center—Personal, a browser-based IDE for Haskell beginners and enthusiasts to learn and explore Haskell under a non-commercial license. It totally eliminates the barrier to learning and accessing Haskell by eliminating the currently time-consuming and frustrating process of setting up an install and assembling the libraries and toolchain needed just to get started. Haskell is the new way to make software that will change the economics of software development.
FP Haskell Center—Personal is an ideal IDE for professional Haskell programmers to showcase the benefits of Haskell at work which are not using Haskell for various reasons. It’s also perfect for beginners and Haskell enthusiasts wanting to learn, prototype and experiment with Haskell for their own enjoyment and possible professional use of Haskell. Members of functional programming and Haskell users groups will find FP Haskell Center—Personal an affordable tool to help them become more proficient with Haskell.
The feedback from users has been extremely positive. “What FP Complete offers overall: tutorials, in-browser ability to write and compile against examples, the aim of the IDE, etc., is spectacular,” commented one user, David Setchell. Independent developer, Kasper Janssens stated “It beats any home brew set up I have ever worked with, hands down and the support people behind it are very responsive and helpful as well.”
“We got resounding feedback from the Haskell community that they wanted a version of FP Haskell Center geared specifically for non-commercial Haskell developers and here it is,” FP Complete Founder/CEO Aaron Contorer said. “We’re excited to see what the Haskell community can achieve with FP Haskell Center—Personal and how it will broaden the Haskell user base.”
FP Haskell Center—Personal is $9.99/month or $99/year (2 months free, %17 saving). Each license includes free community support. Sign up for a 30 day free trial here.
