I don’t really feel like this post belongs on Lobsters. To be frank, there is literally a tweet’s worth of information here. I assume the upvotes are for supporting you, which by all means, I do as well, but I come to Lobsters for deep geeky topics. If this article was in fact, about Haskell, or the techniques you use to stay focused, or how you learn I could definitely get behind it.
I don’t mean to badger you personally about this blog post, I want just to state in general that this is not the kind of content I look for here. When I saw that it had 8 votes, I thought, wow, this must be something really worth a read. After reading the post I thought this person must have sent the link to his friends to upvote it for him. I see this pattern all the time on HN, and I am sorely disappointed to see it on Lobsters.
I am just another user, so take this with a grain of salt, but I hate to see Lobsters go the way of HN or reddit this early. Don’t let me discourage you from posting though, I think journals about interesting Haskell tidbits are perfect for posting here.
Sorry, didn’t mean to be spammy. Downvote if it seems inappropriate. Maybe you’ll like today’s deep geeky topic of using existential types to simulate dynamic typing.
It’s “tomorrow”! Where’s my post!? :)
Looking forward to following this journey.
Your post has arrived.
Do you have a “roadmap”? Like what sorts of things do you expect to cover and when? If you need help, I can think of some helpful starter exercises.
