In chapter 9, we move on from plain text ASCII responses and use new content types: UTF-8 (the `text` library), HTML (the `blaze-html` library), and JSON (the `aeson` library). Includes exercises about when typeclass-based API is appropriate and why type ambiguity occurs.

Chapter 8 is all about constructing HTTP responses, imagining ourselves in the position of a web server library author. Along the way, a little side trip about the different types of integers arises. As our web server is coming together, we do some more testing with curl.

In chapter 6, we read through the HTTP specification and write Haskell types. Chapter 7 uses the bytestring library's Builder type to write encoding functions for these types, with some digressions to discuss some simple performance testing and the ever-useful foldMap function.

if you've played around with Haskell, doing some really nifty things with lists, but, like me, didn't know where to turn next to learn how to use the language for an actual application, I enthusiastically suggest

We have also published a new Haskell library -- The quasi-quoters in the new 'ascii' package help us give cleaner expressions of the ASCII strings that appear in this and subsequent chapters.

Sockets and Pipes chapter 5, "HTTP", is out now! After the first four chapters of preliminaries, here the book begins to directly address HTTP and gives a rudimentary client and server.

The beginning background on text and sockets is significantly expanded; the first 4-5 chapters of the book correspond to lesson 1 of the course. For rest we're planning to follow the course pretty closely.

loving how & teach validation using Applicative (rather than Monad) by taking readers on a thoughtfully devised & effective trek through the Haskell abstraction jungle, carefully signposted to eliminate any risk of getting lost
