Haskell has a vibrant, talented community of very capable programmers. This site aims to be the meeting point for these developers. By centralizing, we hope to make it easier for employers to find people to fill positions, and thus give Haskell a lower entrance cost into industry.
While the main purpose of the site is for professionals and industry, there's no reason hobbyists shouldn't join in as well. The secondary mission of this site is to provide social networking. As the site is still young, it's not clear what features will be implemented, but this site will be a great resource for any Haskell programmer.
Instead of creating a brand new username/password on Haskellers, you can simply log in with OpenID. Most people out there already have an OpenID: Google, Yahoo!, AOL, Wordpress and many others provide them. If you have a Google or Yahoo! account, just click on the appropriate logo and you will be asked to log in automatically. We also support Facebook logins.
Don't worry, we only use this information to authenticate you. We do not request any personal information from your OpenID provider, nor do we ever see your password. The only information Haskellers gets is what you provide us explicitly.
Reporting a user sends a message to the site administrators that a user has been reported. It will also tell us who did the reporting if you are logged in. This is a simple way for you to let us know that there is something inappropriate on a user page. Examples of inappropriate content are:
This site is still in its infancy, so just because we haven't implemented a feature does not mean we won't. If you have a recommendation, feel free to either email the haskell-cafe mailing list or contact Michael Snoyman directly.
