I spent a week at the main functional programming conference and got to talk to my heroes, so here are some reflections.

The diacritic omission phenomenon
Posted on November 18, 2017, by joomy, in: language, turkish
Omitting the diacritics is a common phenomenon in languages such as Turkish and Serbo-Croatian. Then why isn't there any research on this?

Scoped implicit conversions for Idris
Posted on November 14, 2017, by joomy, in: idris, proposal
The Idris community is not so fond of implicit conversions, I think they're a useful and powerful tool that are easy to misuse. Here's an idea to fix them.

Writing a Template Haskell library for GHC.Proof
Posted on September 16, 2017, by joomy, in: haskell, tutorial
GHC.Proof is a great hack and I wanted to add another hack on top of it. It is simple enough that it could serve as a Template Haskell tutorial for others.

My new keyboard and related workflow changes

Starting a Haskell student forum at Wesleyan

I will be giving lectures on Functional Programming in Haskell next semester.

Language immersion for linguistic freaks
Posted on May 4, 2015, by joomy, in: language
My reflection on how I felt when I was adapting to an English-speaking environment.

An impractical pseudo-Prolog
Posted on December 5, 2014, by joomy, in: prolog, logic, programming, haskell
I built a pseudo-Prolog that tries to answer queries by building the least Herbrand model, as a final project for a class. I chose to build it in Haskell to take advantage of lazy evaluations, but even then I couldn't handle infinite sets.

Testing the waters with poetry translation
Posted on November 30, 2014, by joomy, in: turkish, poetry, translation
I translated a couple of famous Turkish poems to English. It turns out that translation is fun and tough. I'll also ramble a bit about adaptation to the US.

I started a blog with Hakyll.
