Column on the Snap Framework

For the January/February issue (PDF) of “The Functional Web” I’m very fortunate to have Greg Collins and Doug Beardsley as guest authors covering the Snap Framework. Not only is it great to finally have some Haskell code in the column, but Greg’s and Doug’s superb writing style means that the column is both highly instructive and easy to read.

I’m hoping we’ll be able to publish at least a couple more Haskell columns this year as well.

New column on Node.js

Stefan Tilkov already blogged about this, but he and I co-authored an article about node.js for my Nov/Dec “Functional Web” column. Node.js is indeed very cool with surprisingly good performance, and it was really nice to finally get to write something together with Stefan (I wrote the foreword for his book, REST und HTTP (German), but that’s not quite the same as co-authoring).

Glenn Vanderburg on Fleet and Enlive

For the September/October issue of “The Functional Web” I’m lucky enough to have master programmer, top-notch trainer, and wonderful conference speaker Glenn Vanderburg as my guest author. Here, Glenn covers the Fleet and Enlive templating libraries for Clojure as a follow-up to Aaron Bedra’s Jul/Aug Compojure article.

A Chat Application in Lift

For the May/June issue of “The Functional Web” column in Internet Computing magazine, I’m fortunate to have David Pollak, creator of the Lift web framework, as a co-author. There’s a fair bit of code in this column, which I always like, and it’s worth looking at just to see how brief but powerful Lift and Scala can be in the hands of a master like David.

As always, feedback welcomed.

WS-REST 2010 Program Online

The program for the First International Workshop on RESTful Design (WS-REST 2010) is now online. As a member of the program committee I helped review submissions, and the ones I read were generally of pretty good quality, so I’m confident this will turn out to be a worthwhile workshop.
